Demetrius Wilson enters the 2013 season as Arkansas' top receiver on the depth chart. It'll be interesting to see how he fills that role, after how high Cobi Hamilton set the bar last year, but with 81 days to go, let's take a look at where he's been.

Wilson played his high school ball at Milennium high school in Goodyear, Arizona, where he went the JUCO route and attended Glendale Junior College. 80 catches, 1,660 yards, 10 touchdowns and two All-Conference awards later, Wilson chose Arkansas over Tennessee, Arizona, and Arizona State.

The 6-3, 180 lb junior appeared in all 12 games with the Hogs, where he recorded 9 receptions for 117 yards and one score. He will lead a seasoned, yet, inexperienced group of receivers this year.

Though the top three wideouts (Wilson, Herndon, and Horton) are all seniors, they will have to make their own identity now that they are ruling the skies of Fayetteville.

And it all starts with Wilson. See you in 81 days.
