  To learn his new role in the Buckeyes offense, Wilson spent much of his time studying film of defenses. He expected that a broader base of knowledge might allow him to more easily identify holes in an opponent's secondary. "There's definitely a lot more film to go with it, just understanding coverages," Wilson said. "It's a lot less 1-on-1 routes and a lot more finding zones, stuff like that. Being able to read coverages and identify that before the play starts - you might say that's a lot of the things that I have to work on to get better. So I've been working on it." It also helped to watch K.J. Hill last season.

Hill was a consistent pass-catching threat for the Buckeyes and left as their career leader in receptions. "That was huge for me to learn from him," Wilson said. "He's as good of a slot as it gets." The Buckeyes hope Wilson can present himself as a capable replacement. Lining up in the slot, he offers natural playmaking ability that was seen as a freshman when he caught 30 passes for 432 and five touchdowns. "It provides a game-plan advantage for us," Hartline said. Hartline raised a few examples. A linebacker might not be fast enough to cover Wilson. A nickel corner is likely to be smaller in size too, allowing him to be an effective run blocker. But it will require Wilson to continue to learn the finer points of the position. - Columbus Dispatch

  Garrett Wilson will take over K.J. Hill's position in Ohio State football's offense when he lines up in the slot this season. To successfully follow in the footsteps of the Buckeyes' all-time leading receiver, he also wants to step into Hill's brain. Ohio State coach Ryan Day's revelation last spring about Wilson's transition from outside to inside created a stir. One could easily see why it excited Day as well. Wilson opened the 2019 season with glimpses of his promise. By the end of it he was making acrobatic catches in the first quarter of the College Football Playoff semifinal. Yet Wilson recognized the switch to the slot involved more than simply lining up closer to his quarterback.

"It's a whole different position, all the intricacies of playing the slot," Wilson said. "I feel like I'm getting used to it every day. I'm just worried about getting better every day at the position, understanding coverages, stuff like that. I'm definitely excited to be in the slot - be a little bit more involved." No receiver has ever been more involved than Hill over the balance of his Ohio State career. He finished with 201 receptions, taking over the career lead during the Big Ten championship game victory over Wisconsin. Physically, the roster measurements say Hill and Wilson are essentially the same - both right around 6-foot, 195 pounds. Wilson, however, was immediately asked to do more athletically as an outside receiver, and he responded. Receives coach Brian Hartline's word is "dynamic," shorthand for having no shortage of ways to get him the ball. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Garrett Wilson is moving into the slot in his second year as an Ohio State football wide receiver. He spent his freshman season rotating with Binjimen Victor outside, where he caught 30 passes for 432 yards and five touchdowns. Wide receiver coach Brian Hartline stated that he always envisioned Wilson's skill set as a match for the slot. With K.J. Hill gone, the opportunity opened up.

His move may not be permanent should Chris Olave declare for the draft after the season. Top 100 wide receivers Mookie Cooper and Jaxon Smith-Njigba will have a college year under their belt and can man that spot if needed. Wilson could join Jullian Fleming, Gee Scott Jr. and Jameson Williams as outside threats. With Ryan Day calling plays, Wilson's third season could mirror the improvements superstar wide receivers display with added NFL experience. He'll be dangerous no matter where he lines up. - Cleveland Plain Dealer
