Marvin Wilson Talks Longhorns and More

Marvin Wilson checks in from the class of 2017. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound defensive tackle is from Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal.

Marvin Wilson has early offers from Louisville, Texas Tech and interest from Ohio State, TCU, Texas A&M and many more.

"The process is exciting," Wilson said. "To see schools you grew up watching on ESPN play each Saturday is in your face saying that we want you and it's crazy. It's just humbling to see that in two years I can have a decision to basically go anywhere I want."

Wilson will take trips, do his homework and take his time before he is ready to make a final decision.

"I went to Texas last summer for two camps and when I stepped on the field it felt like I was on the big stage Wilson said," "I also went to two A&M games this year and to see all the people there and screaming for the school just made me feel like I was home. Right now, I have A&M on March 6th."

Wilson is very familiar with the Longhorn program.

"Being a Houston kid everybody fell in love with Texas when Colt McCoy and Jordan Shipley were there and were tearing it up," Wilson said. "So there is some love for the burnt orange. The coaching staff has a winning attitude. It's like they have that savage in them to do whatever it takes to win. I like how Charlie Strong is changing it up there. Not only to be a football coach but a mentor. He's making good football players and men in the football process. I like coach Brick Haley is there now. He produces so many NFL linemen yearly."

Wilson could end up being one of the top players in the entire 2017 class before all is said and done.

"My game is mostly about using my quickness," Wilson said. "Most offensive linemen aren't good at getting out of their stance fast. So from when the ball is snapped I am on them and I just use simple textbook moves that make it look complicated when it's not."
