Oklahoma State guard Johnny Wilson ‘crazy in the head, in a good way’

Johnny Wilson doesn’t think he’s a mean guy.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys offensive lineman is just doing his job out there on the field. A redshirt sophomore, Wilson has started at both right guard and center this season.

But the man he protects, quarterback Mason Rudolph, has an interesting perspective on Wilson, according to The Oklahoman’s Scott Wright. 

“Johnny is more crazy in the head, in a good way. It comes out in the game,” Rudolph said.

Wilson didn’t shy away from admitting that.

“I think your No. 1 tool in a game is getting that guy across from you to fear you,” he said. “As long as you can get that guy to fear you, you do whatever you want all night.”

When starting center Brad Lundblade went down, Wilson filled in at that position. If Lundblade returns, Wilson could slide back over to right guard.

A 6-foot-3, 310 pound “crazy in the head” guard is a force to be reckoned with. And he’s only going to get better as he develops his skills.
