“First off, I want to thank God for blessing me with the ability to play this game,” Wilson said via social media. “I’m thankful that Troy gave me the opportunity to grow as a person and a player. The relationships I’ve made with some of the players and staff won’t be forgotten. With that being said, I will be entering the transfer portal with two years of eligibility left.”

Wilson’s brother, Ian Foster, was an All-State star for Pike County this past season and signed with Marshall University earlier this year.
