Former Horned Frog linebacker Ben Wilson entered the transfer portal only recently, but the talented defender has already found a new team. Wilson will return to his home state and play for the Washington State Cougars next season.
Excited for this new opportunity to play at Washington State University! Feels good to be home! #GoCougs— BEN WILSON (@BenjaminRWilson) December 23, 2020
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker from Sumner High School in Washington emerged as a four-star prospect at the prep level before signing with TCU in 2017. Wilson totaled 34 tackles, including 23 solo tackles, in 29 games across three seasons with the Horned Frogs. Wilson also recovered one fumble and recorded two blocks for TCU.
Wilson saw most of his action in 2019, notching 26 total tackles in seven games. Wilson began the 2020 season ranked third on the depth chart behind Garret Wallow and Wyatt Harris and was primarily limited to a special teams role this fall.
