Wesco is a Martinsburg, W.V., native who was all-state in football and basketball at Musselman High School. He began his collegiate career at Lackawanna College, catching five passes for 94 yards (9.4 average) as a freshman and redshirting the following year due to injury. He has an NFL build that he used well while blocking for the Mountaineers the past three seasons. He lacked a resume as a receiver, however, until his senior season. He caught just one pass in each of the 2016 (6-yard touchdown) and 2017 (1 yard) seasons seasons before finishing fourth on the squad with 366 receiving yards on 26 catches (14.1 average) scoring once. Big 12 coaches named him first-team all-conference for his play. He became a major contributor on offense in 2018.

Overview
Wesco has the play strength and toughness of an NFL tight end, but he's still very raw in the passing game, which could take some time to shore up. He has a terrific demeanor as a run-blocker and the footwork to become much more consistent in sustaining blocks once he gets his hand placement corrected. Teams might view him as an early developmental prospect on the practice squad with a chance to compete for a move tight end spot in the future.
Strengths
  • Burly upper body with a broad chest and thick arms
  • Nasty with an offensive lineman's demeanor as a block-finisher
  • Impressive play strength at point of attack
  • Gets early arm extension and peppers his opponent with stiff jabs
  • Has size and aggression to kick out linebackers and open a run lane
  • Trusted to handle pass-protection duties for star quarterback
  • Capable staying in front of edge rushers and blitzers
  • Began to come on late in the season as a pass-catcher
  • Will lay the lumber as a blocker on kick-return unit.
Weaknesses
  • Can be frenetic and wild in the initial phase as run-blocker
  • Too much lunging and needs to bring his feet with him
  • Slows feet into move blocks, allowing opponent to wiggle away
  • Hands regularly slide out of position when run-blocking
  • Pounds the grass as a route-runner and lacks instincts in space
  • Uncovering against man coverage is a challenge
  • Slow to open and make himself available as a target
  • Awkward hand positioning as pass-catcher
