Saint Louis receiver Roman Wilson, who led the Crusaders in receiving as a junior, is headed to the Big Ten.

The 6-foot, 180-pound senior announced on social media this morning he will play college football at Michigan.

Wilson, who averaged a staggering 24.8 yards per catch as a junior, had 30 receptions for 744 yards and seven touchdowns. He chose Michigan out of an offer sheet of Arizona State, BYU, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nebraska, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA, Utah State, Washington, Wisconsin and the Wolverines.

A four-star recruit according to 247Sports, Wilson is ranked as the third-best prospect in the class of 2020 from Hawaii behind a pair of teammates at linebacker, Jordan Botelho and Nick Herbig.

He is the No. 318 overall prospect and No. 59 at receiver.

With Wilson making his commitment, only Punahou offensive lineman Solatoa Moeai remains uncommitted among prospects from Hawaii with more than three Division I offers.

There are already 20 seniors in Hawaii who have committed to Division I schools. Eight of them play for the Crusaders.
