OVERVIEW:

Trey Wilson came to Vanderbilt in 2009 and was one the few true freshmen to see game action. Wilson has been a key cog in Vandy's vaunted passing defense the past few seasons and is a big reason Vandy is currently ranked No. 10 nationally in that category. If you are a quarterback Wilson is one player you don't want to intercept your pass. You see, Wilson has returned 80 percent (4-of-5) of his interceptions for touchdowns during his career.

BEST MOMENT:

September 17, 2011 versus Ole Miss. Vanderbilt holds 7-0 second quarter lead over the Rebels. Wilson intercepts Ole Miss quarterback Zack Stoudt's pass at the VU 48 and returns it 52 yards for a Commodore touchdown. He would go on to intercept another pass during the game. Vandy defeated Ole Miss 30-7.
