Wilson Talks Oklahoma Interest

Sooners Illustrated caught up with 2012 OT prospect Michael Wilson out of Aledo HS after his team took it to Birdville winning 40-17. Wilson is receiving interest from multiple schools in the Big 12 conference. Check inside to see what he had to say.

Michael Wilson is an up and coming offensive tackle prospect from Aledo High in Texas who anchors the left side of the line -- which has just been dominating this season.

Wilson and his line mates have done their job to help 2012 Scout.com five-star RB sensation Jonathan Gray have another big time year running the ball.

Even though it is the offensive lines job to make Gray look good, Wilson says Gray also helps them look good even when Wilson or any of the other offensive lineman make a mistake.

"Oh it's great," Wilson said about blocking for a back like Gray. "He makes you look real good. You can make a mistake and he won't show it."

Recently Wilson picked up his first verbal offer from the Texas Tech Red Raiders. And although they haven't offered at this time the Sooners are also taking notice of the athletic offensive tackle prospect.

"Oklahoma is recruiting me and I was supposed to go to that game earlier this week (Iowa State) but I came down with strep throat."

His freshman year Wilson was invited to the Schuman's Ultimate 100 camp for NDC that was held in Norman. And while he was there Wilson says it fit him.

"I would love to go to Oklahoma," Wilson said when asked if he was interested in Oklahoma. "It's a great school and a great program and when I was there it just fit me."

Earlier this season Wilson was yet another 2012 prospect the Sooners invited to the Red River Shootout. And like most of the other recruits in attendance it was the atmosphere that stood out.

"I liked it a lot," Wilson explained. "It was a great atmosphere."

When asked if he has a leader or a favorite at this time Wilson had this to say.

"No I don't really I'm kind of neutral," Wilson said.

Wilson, who states he is now 6-foot-6.5 and 265-pounds talked about what it is he wants to improve on moving forward on the grid iron.

"Right now I really want to improve on my run blocking because it's good but not as good as it could be. And pretty much everything really. Everything needs to improve as I am no where near perfect and I still have plenty of room for improvement."
