Wilson decided his time in New England was well spent but it was the perfect time to move back home at commit to St. Johns University. Head Coach Chris Mullin wanted to build the Red Storm off the best talent that New York/New Jersey has to offer and has done just that. Wilson joins tristate natives Shamorie Ponds, Bashir Ahmed, Malik Ellison, Justin Cole, Kassoum Yakwe as Mullins core foundation to bring the men’s basketball program back to the forefront of the Big East.
