Wilson Visits Cowboys Practice

Recently signed cornerback Chris Hardeman and his dad was one of several visitors watching Oklahoma State's first spring practice Monday. In addition, a recruiting prospect for 2015 was watching the offensive line and Cowboys new line coach Bob Connelly working. Johnny Wilson and his dad stayed for the entire practice, mainly chatting it up with recruiting coordinator Johnny Barr.

The 6-4, 290-pound Wilson is an offensive tackle at Midland Christian in Midland, Texas, but in college will be a guard or center.

"I liked it, actually I loved it," said Wilson as his dad and he were driving to Wichita Falls on the way to meet the rest of their family for a spring break trip. "I got there yesterday and was able to spend time with coach Connelly, but I had a chance to meet and talk to everybody (including head coach Mike Gundy)."

Wilson has offers from North Texas and SMU, and has been to Texas Junior Day. He said he has also visited Texas Tech, Texas State, Baylor, TCU, and BYU.

He is a two-time All State offensive linemen in the private schools in Texas and has been part of back-to-back-to-back state champions. Midland Christian's offense is a primary one-back gun attack.

"I like the intensity of the no huddle and what Oklahoma State is doing on offense," Wilson said as part of what really stood out to him. "Also, the town and the way it is a college town of about 40,000 and the school is the main thing about it. I like that."

Wilson said his dad went to Lubbock Christian and his mother attended West Texas A&M in Canyon, Texas. Wilson adds that he is looking to major in business in college. He promised to keep us updated on his recruitment.
