Jarvis Wilson out of Tupelo is hoping to make a name for himself during his junior campaign. He has the size and speed to catch the college recruiter's eyes.

"I am 6' 2", 180 right now," Wilson said at the Elite Media day. "I feel like my route running, physical ness, and size are my best attributes."

Jarvis Wilson had a good season as a sophomore but is looking for even better numbers this year.

"I had 30 something catches for 500 something yards last year, but I want to get at least 80-100 catches for over a 1,000 yards receiving this year."

This offseason Jarvis has focused on his speed.

"That is what I worked hardest at this offseason. I run a 4.5 forty, but I want to get it down to 4.3. I was running around a 4.6 before this offseason so hopefully I can shave another tenth of a second off by my senior season."

Which colleges are showing interest?

"I am hearing from Ole Miss, MSU, Akron, and USM."

What are the schools saying?

"They are going to be watching me this fall and MSU is saying the same things really."

What stands out about Ole Miss right now?

"They are coming up and getting a lot of good recruits."


"I hang out with Chad Bumphis a lot so that brings them into the picture."

Who else has caught Wilson's eye?

"Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Auburn."
