After thanking his family, including his parents, sisters, and aunt, Canarsie (Brooklyn, N.Y.) senior wide receiver prospect Sean Wilson announced his college commitment.

“I will be continuing my athletic and academic career at the University of Virginia,” Wilson announced at of Canarsie’s Monday morning (October 11) game versus Lincoln. The announcement was streamed via Instagram live.

Wilson, who measures in at 6’5”, 210 pounds, picked UVA over scholarship offers from Arizona State, Liberty, Miami, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech. He is rated a 3-star prospect by 247Sports and Rivals.com, with 247 ranking him as the no. 241 wide receiver in his class and the no. 10 senior in New York.

Wilson, who played three varsity football games this past spring for Christ The King (Middle Village, N.Y.), suffered a torn ACL early his senior year. During his announcement he noted that he had surgery recently, and in a posted statement on Instagram Wilson expressed appreciation to the Virginia staff for their faith despite the injury.

Virginia’s class of 2022, which already included commitments from two other wide receiver prospects in 6’4” Dakota Twitty and 6’0” speedster Dominique McKenzie, now boasts 15 prospects. Wilson is a prospect the Hoos offered in January of 2020, following his sophomore season.

EDGE Outlook

With his 6’5” frame, Wilson fits the mold Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall likes in his wide receivers. Wilson falls into the “always open” category, as Mendenhall has said, because of his size. He will not have played much in the way of actual games the past two seasons before arriving in Charlottesville, but his size and athleticism stand out, and this is a player the staff liked enough to offer following his sophomore season. Virginia is talented and young at the wide receiver position, so Wilson won’t have to rush back from injury.

As for UVA’s 2022 Class, the entire rundown is below. Three of the commitments – OL Joe Brown, WR Dominique McKenzie and DB Marcus McKenzie – are expected to take two-year LDS missions out of high school and therefore won’t enroll on Grounds until the summer of 2024.
