Coach Corbin Quote: Justin is someone that we have had interest in for the past few years because of his arm strength and his unique ability to pitch and also catch. He was able to get one year of college experience before transferring to us. Although set back by an arm injury prior to his arrival, I believe his progress will allow him to help us towards the end of the year. Justin has a very good baseball acumen. 

2017 - Expected to miss 2017 season while recovering from elbow surgery.

Vol State CC - Pulled double duty in his one season at Vol State CC, hitting .302 in 18 games, 15 starts, behind the plate and going 2-1 with a 2.51 ERA on the mound in eight games, two starts... Led the team with three saves and recorded 12 strikeouts over 14.1 innings before injuring his arm.

High School - Lettered three times at Oakland HS in Murfreesboro, Tenn., leading the squad as team captain as a senior in 2015... Tabbed an honorable mention All-American as a senior and All-District... Played with Knights Baseball during the summer, winning the 2014 WWBA 18U national championship... Played summer ball and/or high school ball with numerous Division I athletes including Ryan Olenek (Ole Miss), Brady Singer (Florida), Grant Hawkins (Arkansas State) and Andrew Baker (Florida).

Academics - Wilson is majoring in American studies.

Personal - Justin Lee Wilson... Born 9/9/96 in Murfreesboro, Tenn.... Son of Michelle and Craig Wilson... Has two brothers, Austin and Benjamin... Nickname is Willy... Dad raced against Dale Earhnardt in NASCAR and brother Austin races in Nashville... Favorites include: Marcus Stroman (player), Atlanta Braves (team), Friday Night Lights (movie), Shark Tank (TV show), Brad Pitt (actor), steak and baked potato (meal), Florida Georgia Line (band), popcorn (late night snack)... Says he would be a race car driver if not a baseball player... Names Brad Pitt as the actor who would play him in a movie... Uses outgoing as the one word to describe himself... Roommates with Stephen Scott and Ty Duvall... Chose Vanderbilt because the “academics and baseball program are like none other.”
