AUSTIN — Lake Travis star wide receiver Garrett Wilson signed his National Letter of Intent to play for Ohio State University Wednesday morning at Lake Travis High School.
"This is just a day of relief. It's such a blessing to be here and to have all the people I love around me, my family and friends. This is a good day for me," said Wilson.
Wilson said despite Urban Meyer announcing his retirement from coaching, he remained fully committed to OSU.
"My dad, that's something that he preaches. Once you start something, you've got to finish it. So I started out not just committing to one person, I didn't commit just to Coach Meyer. I've got a lot of love for him and he knows that. But Ohio State is bigger than just one man," said Wilson. "So, I committed to the program, I committed to the university, that fan base and all the people there. So it meant a lot more to me to stick to my commitment and ... 'finish what I started.'"
The five-star receiver will join the Buckeyes in the spring after graduating in December.
