As of late, one recruit who has Mustang fans buzzing is Moore Oklahoma's Julian Wilson (6'3 and 185 pounds). A dynamic athlete who runs a 4.5-forty, Wilson's interest in SMU has been on the rise the last couple of weeks.

"Yeah oh definitely I could see myself playing there," stated Wilson to PonyStampede.com. "Especially since they are one of the schools that just came into the picture, but yet are still close to giving me an offer."

So Wilson thinks he is close to an offer? A conclusion he has come to after talking with wide receiver's coach Jeff Reinebold.

"Coach Reinebold and my coach are talking on a day to day basis," said Wilson. "Coach Reinebold has told me that everything is looking good and lining up good. I have been talking to him and he tells me that once he looks at the film an offer will probably be on the way."

Currently Wilson has no offers but is also receiving interest from Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, LSU, Texas Tech, UCLA, Kansas, and Baylor.

"SMU is showing more interest than both (OSU and OU) of them. I talked to the OSU coach once or twice, but it's noting like the SMU coach. With the SMU coach I feel like I get along with him. He is a cool guy," said Wilson. "With the OU coach and the OSU coach I feel like they just want to talk about football. The SMU coach is asking me about how my grades are going and how everything else is going. I like that in a coach. He doesn't just want to talk football and get me off the phone."

Could a school like SMU be the perfect fit for Wilson? An opportunity to get more personal attention than at a Big 12 school and a chance to come in and make an immediate impact.

"You can't just jump at the biggest offer that comes your way. Half of the time once these big schools give you offers they are guaranteeing you are going to be a red-shirt in your first year," said Wilson. "At SMU I would have the chance to come in and make an immediate impact. I would like that opportunity."

In 2008, Wilson played both sides of the football. On defense he collected 43 tackles and broke up six passes. On offense he hauled in 21 catches for 265 yards and three touchdowns. He also racked up an additional 286 yards in returns. With the combination of his speed and size, schools will be recruiting him for both sides of the football.

"Most schools are looking at me at wide receiver, but some are looking at me as a DB," Wilson told SoonersIllustrated.com (OU Scout). "Most of the coaches I have talked to at junior days I have been to said that they are looking at me as an athlete and they will figure it out when I get there."

When asked who was in his current top three, Wilson told PonyStampede.com that the order was Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, and SMU. The promising news is the Mustangs were not in his list of top schools weeks ago.

Wilson will be a second-generation player from his family. His father Darrell McCowan , played college football at Oklahoma State. In 1978 McCowan played alongside current OSU coach Mike Gundy.
