Josh Wilson, a 6-1 195 safety out of Kilgore Junior College (Tx.), narrowed down his college choices to Iowa State and Baylor. After a weekend trip to Waco to see the Baylor campus, Wilson decided to give his pledge to Art Briles and the green and gold.
"When I went down there, it was just felt like home. It was a great atmosphere, and Coach Norwood and I have a great relationship," said Wilson.
Wilson will come in as a qualifier and plans to enroll at Baylor in January to go through spring practice.
"They think I can make an immediate impact," Wilson says. "They think I can come in with Byron Landor leaving, and they have been comparing me with him, but they say I have more speed."
Wilson explains he will have 2 years to play 2 years at Baylor, and that the idea that Baylor is headed to a bowl game was a big reason why he chose the Bears.
"The bowl game was a really big factor," said Wilson. "It was between Iowa State and Baylor, and with Baylor going to a bowl game it was big. I am planning on being down there for that."
The first day junior college players are allowed to sign letters of intent is December 15th.
