Jonathan Wilson is a 2020 wide receiver from Calabasas High School in Calabasas, California. Rarely anyone knows much about Wilson because he is an incoming freshman, but 2017 five-star cornerback and wide receiver Darnay Holmes, who is from Calabasas High School and is being recruited to play for Michigan, told Maize n Brew that Wilson will be something special.

"He will be the No. 1 WR in his class, just wait on it," Holmes said. "The pro way training is putting tools in his tool box, best believe that. He has great body control, loves to learn, is a team player, has great hands. His speed is decent, but he will become faster."

Regarding the comments made by Holmes, Wilson said, "It means a lot to me personally, coming from one of the top athletes in the nation. I use those words as encouragement for myself. I feel that I have what it takes to be the best in my class if I stay on the path that I am on. It means a lot to hear those words from him."

The wide receiver, who also plays safety, has been playing football since he was six years old. He told Maize n Brew a few of his favorite colleges, which include Michigan, UCLA, Stanford and Oregon.

"Michigan is one of my favorite schools since I have liked Jim Harbaugh as a coach," Wilson mentioned. "I really like the enthusiasm and motivation that he brings. The fans are amazing. You have fans that camp out to get the best seats in the house so they can watch you play the game you love. In addition, they are sponsored by Nike, which is one of my favorite clothing brands. The communityI heard is just amazing at Michigan. That is why it is one of my favorite schools."

Wilson believes that if he stays hard working, dedicated, and humble, he has the potential to become one of the best receivers of his time. First, Wilson must focus on trying to make the varsity team as an incoming freshman for the 2016 season.

"I can see myself making varsity as a freshman as long as I work hard and have open years to learn from the older guys and my coaches," the 2020 graduate said.

Holmes added, "[Wilson is] most likely a varsity player."
