A native of Kings Mountain, N.C., Wilson was one of just two Wolfpack players to start all 61 games and one of a few freshmen in the ACC to start all its team's games. He started 57 games at second base, two at shortstop and a pair at designated hitter. Wilson finished the year with a .300 batting average to go along with 72 hits, tying with classmate Brad Debo for the second most on the team.
 
He tied for the ACC lead with 21 doubles, the second-highest total for any freshman in the nation. Wilson smashed eight home runs to rank second among ACC rookies in that category. In addition, he tallied 48 RBIs to pace all ACC freshmen and finish second on the team.
 
He was also an ACC All-Freshman Team Selection.
