Austin Ward of ESPN.com did a great piece on Wednesday afternoon profiling h-back Dontre Wilson. In the piece, Ward talks about how the “dynamic” freshman has found a role as perhaps the most versatile player on the offensive side of the ball, and how it’s transferred into success for both him and the team.

Here’s an excerpt from the post:

Wilson has added 15 pounds to his 5-foot-10 frame since arriving on campus, and after largely spending the first half of the season as a novelty with a small package of plays and responsibilities, his ability to quickly absorb the playbook and willingness to contribute in a variety of ways has sped up the learning curve to get him on the field more often.

And considering how valuable Wilson can be just by coming off the sideline and lining up anywhere in the formation, the more he can do that, the better an already dynamic offense can be.
