De’Runnya Wilson waiting until after bowl game to make a decision


Mississippi State wide receiver De’Runnya Wilson is one of the more athletic players in college football right now. He could easily be a second to third round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft if he decides to leave this year.

However, he is one of the last underclassmen that has yet to make a final decision. According to The Clarion-Ledger, it looks like Wilson will make his team and scouts wait until after his team’s bowl game to make a final decision.

“I just want to win this football game,” Wilson said, referring to the Belk Bowl on Dec. 30. “NFL stands for ‘Not for Long.’ It’s not going anywhere.”

Wilson talked about his focus being on the upcoming bowl game and even admitted that he did not ask for a grade just yet.

“I didn’t even put in a draft grade. I’m just focused on the game right now,” Wilson said. “Just take it one day at a time. I just really want to win in Charlotte and get that Belk Bowl trophy.”

During his career with the Bulldogs, Wilson has caught 128 passes for 1,853 yards and 21 touchdowns.
