Cornerback was a position of need for BYU in the class of 2020. In the final weekend before Signing Day, the coaching staff put on a full-court press to make sure their needs were filled at cornerback. Wilson will have the opportunity to come in right away and compete for playing time in a secondary that loses Dayan Ghanwoloku.
With the addition of Wilson, BYU now has 25 commits in the class of 2020.
