Both are three-star recruits.
Wilson (5-10, 176), a senior running back and safety, committed a few hours earlier than Brown and is ranked as the No. 82 prospect in Georgia. He is expected to play defense for the Tigers.
Wilson chose the Tigers over North Carolina and West Virginia, but he also had offers from Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas State, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Wisconsin among others.

Meanwhile, Brown (6-3, 215), who is ranked No. 33 overall in Georgia and as the No. 49 wide receiver nationally, plays at North Gwinnett.
He caught 10 passes for 179 yards and four touchdowns last Friday as the Bulldogs, who are ranked No. 1 in the state, topped No. 6 Norcross in Region 7-AAAAAA action.
Brown picked the Tigers over Boston College, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, Minnesota, Vanderbilt and Yale among others.
