Oklahoma State may have an interest in the Oregon quarterback commit after Nick Starkel opens up his recruiting

Oklahoma State may have an interest in Terry Wilson, the Del City standout who is committed to Oregon, following the de-commitment of Nick Starkel.

It isn't just Oklahoma State losing quarterback commits. While the Cowboys lost a commitment Sunday when nine-month commitment Nick Starkel out of Argyle (Liberty Christian), Texas made it public he was going to open up his recruiting process again there were two other big-time quarterbacks that changed their mind. Ohio State pledge Tristen Wallace (6-3, 228) out of DeSoto, Texas flipped his commitment to Oregon and top-rated high school quarterback Hunter Johnson (6-3, 210) out of Brownsburg, Indiana has switched his commitment from Tennessee to Clemson.

Now the Wallace commitment to Oregon could play a factor in the Cowboys attempt to recover a good quarterback in their 2016 recruiting class. Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy could not address any current recruits, committed or not, to Oklahoma State, as NCAA rules prohibit that, but he did say he felt the Cowboys, "will get a good quarterback in this class."

With Wallace changing to Oregon, could that cause Del City, Okla., standout Terry Wilson (6-3, 190) to have second thoughts after he switched his commitment in September from Nebraska to Oregon?

Nick Warehime, his head coach at Del City, said he noticed that Gundy began following Wilson on Twitter. Warehime said he also received a text message Monday from the coaching staff at Nebraska saying they would still like to have Wilson come play for them.

Warehime said he barely spoke to Wilson Monday but that he did not seem phased by the switch of Wallace from Ohio State to Oregon. Personally, a believe that is the reaction a quarterback should have. Believe in yourself and be ready to compete against anybody. 

Wilson had a tough year as Warehime admitted that injuries took their toll on the Eagles and specifically the players they had playing around Wilson. He still was able to throw for five touchdowns in the final regular season game against Chickasha to lock up a playoff spot. In the first round of the Class 5A playoffs Del City lost to Bishop McGuinness but Wilson accounted for seven touchdowns in the high scoring battle with the Irish. 

Last season as a junior, Wilson ran for 194 yards and four touchdowns. He also completed 201-of-369 passes for 2,856 yards with 24 touchdown passes and just 10 interceptions. 

His offer list before he committed the first time to Nebraska featured over 20 Division I offers and that has only gone up. 

Wilson would be a logical and I think a smart choice for Oklahoma State.
