Former Georgia State stars Bilukidi, Wilson survive NFL cuts

Former Georgia State football players Albert Wilson and Christo Bilukidi got good news Saturday: they each made NFL rosters.

Wilson, a wide receiver and returner, was one of 53 players kept by Kansas City. He signed with the Chiefs earlier this year as a undrafted rookie free agent. He caught seven passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the preseason. He also returned five kicks for 138 yards. He is one of five wide receivers the Chiefs kept.

Wilson totaled 6,235 all-purpose yards at Georgia State and is the school’s all-time leading scorer with 26 touchdowns for 156 points.

Bilukidi, a defensive tackle, was kept by the Benglas, which he joined last year. He is in his third year in the NFL after being drafted by the Raiders two years ago. He had six tackles in the preseason.

Tackle Ulrick John, who was selected by the Colts in the seventh round of this year’ draft, broke his ankle in the preseason. He is on the team’s injured reserve list.
