After playing 20 games in three seasons, Wilson applied to leave the Demons in the 1957 pre-season. Carlton, Richmond and North Melbourne, tried to win the services of the ruckman/defender, and he applied for a clearance to the Blues but was refused.
After another clearance request - this time to Richmond - was refused, Wilson stayed with the Demons and played first ruck in a premiership side. In the losing 1958 Grand Final he played in a back pocket.
