He caught a record 82 passes for 860 yards and seven touchdowns while racking up 1817 all-purpose yards in 10 games. In a narrow loss at Stonehill, Wilson piled up a school-record 299 all-purpose yards while tying a school record with 16 catches in the game.

Earlier in the season in a five-overtime win vs. Plymouth State, Wilson finished with a school-record 187 receiving yards.
