2013 Stats (HS): Earned 2013 All-State first-team honors as a senior running back ... also captured All-County first-team honors ... recorded 1,141 yards on 168 carries (6.8 yards/carry) with 33 touchdowns as a senior ... gained first-team All-County and All-Detroit accolades as a junior ... notched 1.335 yards on 192 carries with 29 touchdowns as a junior ... played for head coach Dan MacLean.(via BCEagles.com)
2014 Projections: Steve Addazio has said already that he does not plan on using a single running back like he did for most of last year with Andre Williams. With Myles Willis expected to get a chunk of those carries and Tyler Rouse on the depth chart as well there will still be a need for a third and possibly fourth running back to grab carries for the Eagles. I partially lean towards Outlow and Hilliman grabbing those carries, but you never know, anything can happen in training camp. This will certainly be a position battle that will be worth monitoring.
How'd He Get Here: Richard Wilson is a 2* running back out of Michigan that chose Boston College over claimed offers from Central Michigan, Ball St, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, and Western Michigan.
On why he chose Boston College ""I would say what made me want to be an Eagle was that it is a prestigious school, they’re great with academics, and if I don’t make the NFL, I’ll have a great job to fall back on," Wilson told Scout.com. "I can get my masters from B.C. and they also have a well-put-together football team and a great coaching staff."
