2014 Stats: Redshirted

2015 Projections: Bobby Wolford certainly has cemented his role as the starting fullback for the Eagles, but Wilson adds another dimension that may be intriguing to Addazio. Wilson came out of high school as a running back, and it will be interesting to see if Addazio wants to use him in power sets as a possible option to run the ball. I'd expect to see Wilson on the two deep throughout the season and for him to see game time at different times.

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."
