Wilson Closing in on SMU Offer

Ft. Worth Southwest WR DeMarcus Wilson has visited SMU and is also close to his first offer!

Fort Worth Southwest 2015 receiver DeMarcus Wilson is still waiting on that first offer, but after attending SMU junior day, Wilson says he's close to getting offered by the Mustangs.

"SMU is the closest to offering out of all the schools that are showing interest in me," Wilson said. "I went to their junior day, and I had a really good time."

Wilson really enjoyed his time on the Hilltop and a big reason why is being able to meet all the coaches on the Hilltop.

" I got to talk to all the coaches, and it just felt like it would be a good place for me to be," Wilson said. "I like that it's close to home and how they stay on their players about getting their weight up and working hard in the weight room."

Wilson has been keeping in close contact with SMU special teams coach Carlos Barocio-Leon, who will be visiting for Wilson's spring game and may bring good news with him.

"He said he wants to check me and see how I do and that they might give me an offer if I do well," Wilson said.

Although Wilson got to meet all the coaches and has a good relationship with Barocio-Leon, that's not the only thing that stood out to the 6-0, 160-pound receiver.

"The thing that really stands out to me about SMU is their academics. They said they really stay on their players about academics," Wilson said. "They even have people making sure players go to class. SMU is known for having a good education, and that's important to me."

Not only does Wilson care about academics, he has excelled on the football field as well, contributing over 800 yards and eight touchdowns last season for Southwest and Wilson expects an even better senior campaign.

"I'm expecting to have 1,000 yards receiving. I just want to help my team win," Wilson said. "We are working around and putting younger players in places where we need them, so I think we'll be fine."

"I just need to go hard to help the team and hopefully I'll pick up my first offer."

With an MVP performance at receiver at this past weekend's National Underclassmen Combine camp, expect Wilson to pick up a few offers even after the likely SMU offer.

Wilson has visited North Texas and TCU and has been hearing from Mississippi State as well.
