Wesley was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award.

On Twitter Wesley said, “ I will always cherish my time at Tech. I learned how to work and how to take responsibility for the man next to me. After much thought and prayer, and after receiving positive feedback from the NFL, I have decided to enter the 2019 NFL Draft. I look forward to continue working hard and making the sacrifices to achieve my lifelong ream of playing this game I love at the highest level. Guns up Forever.”
