Toby Wilson received over a dozen offers during the recruiting process. He picked Ohio State over programs such as Air Force, Army, Navy, West Virginia, Western Kentucky, Akron and North Texas.
Kevin Wilson joined the Ohio State staff in 2017 and has held the same title for the past four seasons. He was previously the head coach at Indiana from 2011-16 before the two sides mutually parted ways.
