Bobo Wilson emerges as an elder statesman for FSU

When Bobo Wilson looks around the Florida State receivers room, he doesn’t see Rashad Greene.

Or, for that matter, Kelvin Benjamin. Or Kenny Shaw.

Now in his third year at FSU, Wilson is the elder statesman of a young receiving corps.

“It was my time to step up,” Wilson said. “Because I learned from Rashad, Kelvin Benjamin, I learned from those guys.

“So now I’ve got to pass it down to the younger guys. We’ve all got to step up.”

Wilson has emerged as one of the early stars of fall camp, earning praise from coach Jimbo Fisher after nearly every practice.

In fact, after an up-and-down spring, Fisher has been high on almost all of his receivers lately.

“I think Bobo is playing phenomenal football,” Fisher said. “Right now, knock on wood, he is playing really good. And he’s competing. He’s stepping up.”
