Is Wilson eyeing TCU?

It seems like two horse race for the services of Shreveport, Louisiana's Trey Wilson. Does TCU have a shot? BigPurpleNation.com went one on one with the cornerback on Sunday.

"Vanderbilt is right now my top school, TCU is number two," those are the words of Louisiana cornerback Trey Wilson who has been offered by the Horned Frogs. Along with those two offers, Wilson also has offers from Louisiana Tech, Louisiana, SMU, and Tulane.

"I talked to Coach Jennings the defensive back coach at TCU. They would have me playing field corner, which is the man corner and I really like that," said Wilson to BigPurpleNation.com on Sunday. When asked why Vanderbilt over TCU his response was, "They have a real good defensive back coach. He has been coaching some of the top talent in the nation for two years now. Also it's SEC football."

Wilson is a good cover corner that has great instincts. He is very loose at the hips, which allows him to change direction quickly and smoothly. Recently the 2009 recruit ran an unofficial 4.4 forty. "I'm a bit of a gambler. I like to make big plays. I like leaving my feet, diving for the ball. I also really like to bait the quarterback. I have a good makeup speed so I can make him throw a bad pass." His junior year, Wilson recorded fifty-three tackles, three interceptions, and had twenty-four pass breakups.

The cornerback has yet to make a trip to TCU, but a trip to Fort Worth is in his plans. "I plan on going there before the end of the summer…."I went to Texas a couple of weeks ago and it went real good. They said they are close to making an offer." Wilson has stated that he will make a selection before the start of the season.

His last year of high school football should be an exciting one. The Evangel Christian Academy returns nearly everyone on defense. "Our whole defense is coming back this season and we only have a few holes on offense. I'm expecting big things. We should win the state championship and go undefeated. If we work hard we should be holding the state trophy at the end of the year," said Wilson.

When it comes to his own game, Trey has said, "I need to get a little stronger. I'm also trying to become more of a leader. We are returning ten starters on defense and nine of them were sophomores on last year's team.
