In congratulating LSU LB Devin White on his win of the Butkus Award, Alabama junior LB Mack Wilson wrote that he's "coming for it next year."
Of course, in order for Wilson to come for the award next year, the star linebacker would have to return for the 2019 season in Tuscaloosa rather than declare for the NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 239-pounder would likely land on Day 1 of the draft should he declare. We'll keep an eye on this one. Sometimes players just like their spots -- we saw Clemson's multitude of defenders opt back in last winter, ditto players almost across the board at Washington. Dec 4 - 7:12 PM

Alabama junior LB Mack Wilson ranks second on NFL Media's Lance Zierlein's list of the top linebackers to watch in 2018.

Wilson ranks second behind fellow SEC linebacker Devin White, and he's certainly not the last player from the conference to place on the list. Wilson was forced into the lineup because of injuries last year, and to say he acquitted himself well is an understatement. "His playing style is similar to what we saw from 2018 first-round pick and former Tide LB Rashaan Evans," writes Zierlein, "including his speed and aggression." Wilson still needs to improve his ability to disengage, but there's tremendous upside in his 6-foot-2, 239-pound frame.

An NFC scout said Alabama junior LB Mack Wilson reminds him of 49ers LB Reuben Foster.

The scout liked Wilson's "hard-hitting style -- he was a vicious special-teams tackler as a freshman -- and sideline-to-sideline speed." Wilson suffered an injury last November that held him out until the college football playoffs where he made a big splash. He recorded an interception in the College Football Playoff Semifinal against Clemson and racked up a team-high 12 tackles in the National Championship game against Georgia. Wilson will likely declare for the draft with a healthy and productive 2018 season.

Alabama sophomore LB Mack Wilson (foot) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Wilson (6'1/235) was carted off the field after injuring his foot in the second quarter of Saturday's win over LSU. While he may well miss the remainder of the regular season, on his current timetable, he could potentially return for presumed Playoff action this winter. The sophomore linebacker has intercepted three passes while recording 21 tackles for the campaign.

Alabama sophomore LB Mack Wilson suffered a potential season-ending foot injury in Saturday's 24-10 win over LSU.

Wilson (6'1/235) injured his foot in the second quarter and was subsequently carted off to the locker room. There's still some wiggle room in terms of games remaining for the sophomore to return before the end of the season, but initial indications are not of the optimistic variety. Wilson entered the weekend having recorded 21 tackles to go with three interceptions in eight games.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin revealed that he has contacted the SEC in regards to a hit by Alabama freshman LB Lyndell Wilson on WR Speedy Noil.

Wilson levied a hard hit on Noil during a kick return in the second quarter of Saturday's showdown with the Aggies. No targeting call was made, there, and the play was not reviewed. Alabama HC Nick Saban stepped up to defend the 6-foot-1, 235-pound freshman linebacker, saying, "It was a great hit. I know some people made something about the fact that it was targeting. But it was not an unprotected player. The guy is running with the ball." Even if the SEC does tell Sumlin they messed up the call, it will not have an effect on Wilson's playing status vs. LSU a week from Saturday -- the SEC does not make retroactive calls in situations like this.

Alabama freshman LB Lyndell Wilson will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in one of his knees.

It is the second major medical procedure Wilson has undergone this offseason, following labrum surgery in the spring. 247Sports ranked Wilson as the No. 15 overall prospect in this past recruiting cycle and Rivals had him as the No. 26 player in the country. Wilson may be headed for a redshirt.

Alabama freshman LB Lyndell Wilson will undergo surgery next week to repair a torn labrum.

Wilson was a five-star recruit for the 2016 cycle and Rivals' No. 26 player in the country. The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder cut through the general injury mysticism generally handed out by college programs in regards to injury and simply tweeted "Torn labrum" followed by a crying emoji. Next week's surgery will likely keep him on the recovery trail for the next three-to-four months.
