Linebacker Mack Wilson, who is normally very active on Twitter, was absent on the social media platform from the end of May to the start of September. His first tweet back was a happy birthday post to his mother on Sept. 1.

“I always go into the offseason being able to lock in and just not have any distractions,” he said. “That way I can get everybody on the same page and get my team together and stuff like that.

“It was my mom’s birthday, so I had to make a post.”

The junior is back at, too. He has been tweeting, retweeting and posting photos. He even has his own hashtag, ‪#Dirty3o.

You can find him @iam__mw3o.

“I’ll still be on it, just not posting as much,” Wilson said. “Because at the end of the day, I’m still trying to lock in. It’s a big year for me.”
