Ohio State sophomore OW Dontre Wilson made Travis Haney's Top 50 breakout list for the second consecutive season.
"He's an impact guy for us," Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Haney's last prediction didn't work out so well -- as Wilson finished with just 53 touches, accounting for 250 rushing yards and 210 receiving yards in 2013 -- but he isn't fazed. You'll recall that Wilson has been compared to Percy Harvin since before he even stepped foot onto campus. One reason Wilson didn't get onto the field more last year was his lithe 5-foot-10, 185-pound frame. He's bulked up since then. "He's much stronger," Meyer said. "He's much more prepared for this level." Aug 13 - 4:59 PM

The hype around Ohio State freshman RB Dontre Wilson continues to grow.

Fox Sports Ohio's Zac Jackson tweeted "you should almost always hesitate before buying the hype but with Dontre Wilson, go ahead and buy it." The Columbus Dispatch added that Wilson has shown electric speed during early portions of preseason camp. Carlos Hyde and Jordan Hall are the veteran presence at the position, but watch out for the true freshman in 2013.
