  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
