Wilson did tell us he has learned quite a bit in how to conduct himself on social media. Wilson said he watched the Ohio State investigation unfold on Twitter, including the opinions about Zach Smith, the former Ohio State receivers coach who recruited Wilson. Smith is accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife.

“It teaches you to grow up faster. It’s been a blessing all the attention and stuff like that. I feel like it helps with your confidence and stuff like that too. It’s been a blessing, but it’s also hard to deal with”, Wilson said.

Garrett added that he wants to focus his energy on his team and helping to lead the Cavs to a seventh state championship.
