Player bio:

The Miami native helped Northwestern High School win a state title his senior year before moving to Madison. He started seven of 10 games played as a true freshman in 2018 (29 tackles, seven pass breakups), and then began eight of 13 appearances the following year (22 tackles, three for loss, one interception, seven pass breakups). Wildgoose chose to opt out of the remainder of the 2020 season after starting two contests (six tackles, two for loss, one pass breakup), suffering a shoulder injury against Northwestern after sitting out the team's win over Michigan due to COVID-19 protocols. -- by Chad Reuter

 

Lance Zierlein Scouting report (projects him as an UDFA):

Overview

Wildgoose has adequate foot agility and can grind on slower wideouts over the first five yards, but lacks the makeup speed and length to recover from early missteps in his coverage. It is easy to see his physicality throughout the route and he could become more impactful from press with more work. He's quick to crowd and body the receiver but fails to trust his technique, resulting in too many penalties over the course of his career. His lack of fluid transitions could make him a sitting duck in off-man, so he's better suited for zone or bump-and-run schemes as he tries to find a team fit as a likely undrafted free agent.

Strengths

Feet for early mirror of release.

Gives out rough rides for the first five yards.

Quick to close distance on receiver early in route.

Extremely physical and flusters the catch space.

Reads eyes and times his scrapes.

Displays adequate feel for route from trail.

Short-area stickiness to hound the comeback route.

Improvement in run defense from 2018 to 2019.

Weaknesses

Is often too early in declaring and opening hips.

Doesn't trust technique and positioning.

13 career pass interference/defensive holding penalties.

Weight is too far forward when transitioning with the stem.

Below-average burst to stay connected at break points.

Needs to finish plays.

Below-average length to attack the catch.
