  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
