Johnny Wilson Talks About His Commitment

Pistols Firing! That cry went out again Thursday morning as Oklahoma a State picked up its second (technically third) commitment in the 2015 football recruiting class with Midland Christian Academy offensive lineman Johnny Wilson. The 6-4, 290-pound Wilson is a three-time All-State performer playing for a three-time state champion. He visited Oklahoma State with his dad earlier this week.

"I wanted to talk to my parents. My dad really liked what he saw and I loved it," Wilson said Thursday morning after he committed to the Cowboys new offensive line coach Bob Connelly.

"I loved the town and the campus is extraordinary. I love the facilities and how nice they are and the coaches are great. I get along with them and I look forward to playing for them."

Wilson was in Stillwater on Monday and watched the first day of spring practice. He certainly passed the eye test as he looks very mature physically and his dimensions seem to match what is reported.

He said he really liked the town and he has other school visits to compare his OSU visit. He attended Texas Junior Day, and has visited Texas Tech, Texas State, Baylor, TCU and BYU. He has scholarship offers from North Texas and SMU.

Wilson said after his visit, he and his dad caught up with his mom and the rest of the family and they were able to talk about Oklahoma State. It was after their conversations that Wilson was ready to commit.

There is a lot of social networking chatter that he might be inclined to go somewhere else if offered but he said he is completely sold on Oklahoma State. He is on board with the fact that while he has played tackle through high school he will move to a center or guard in college.

He also competes in track and field, throwing the shot put and discus and said like in football that Midland Christian is back-to-back-to-back state champions in that sport as well.

Wilson is an excellent student who told me that he has a 3.588 grade point average.
