Wilson Is Sold On Oklahoma State

Johnny Wilson was one of the first high school players in the Class of 2015 to commit to Oklahoma State, giving his verbal to head coach Mike Gundy last March. He has made several unofficial visits to the OSU campus but finally made his official visit this weekend with several other Cowboys commits. We caught up with Wilson as he was driving home to Midland, Texas.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound offensive lineman from Midland (Texas) Christian Academy shared his thoughts on hanging out with the current Cowboys offensive linemen.

“It was great. I got to hang out with all of the o-line, meet up with them and start building my relationship with them. It couldn’t have gone any better,” said Wilson, who from his left tackle position helped pave the way for a Midland Christian team that averaged more than 420 total yards and more than 33 points a game this past season.

Wilson spent most of the weekend hanging out with the Cowboys offensive linemen, including freshman Brad Lundblade, who was his host for the weekend.

He also spent time with offensive line coach Bob Connelly.

“I love coach Connelly. His work mentality and everything is great. He wants the team to succeed … I’m excited to play for him,” said Wilson, a 3-star recruit who is ranked as the fifth-best center prospect in Midlands by Scout national recruiting analyst Greg Powers.

Wilson will graduate from Midland Christian in the spring and plans to enroll at OSU in early June for summer school.

“Everything I saw and everyone I talked to really makes me feel like I made the right choice. I just seem to fit in at Oklahoma State. It’s just the perfect school for me,” he said.

“Every time I go there, I just more and more don’t want to leave. It keeps drawing me back,” Wilson said of OSU.
