Reggie Wilson to Announce His Pledge to Texas

Reggie Wilson of Haltom City has always done things a little bit differently. Wilson, in an email from his Haltom head coach Scot Hafley, has decided to commit to the University of Texas and become the 21st member of the 2010 recruiting class.

Reggie Wilson (6-3, 238) has decided to announce his intentions to play for the University of Texas. Two weeks ago, Wilson had officially cut his list to three schools: Texas, TCU, and Oklahoma.

Coach Hafley said in an email this afternoon, "He (Wilson) will make a public commitment to the University of Texas on Tuesday afternoon at 3:45 at Haltom High School."

At that time, Reggie will answer questions about his decision.

He continued, "As each of you know he plans to graduate next December which leaves him little time to prepare for the state required taks test, the ACT/SAT, and to complete his graduation requirements a semester early."

Hafley also said, "Reggie asked me to articulate for him how much he appreciated all of the coaches at the four schools he visited, especially Coach Patterson and the TCU coaches. The decision to leave Fort Worth and TCU and attend school in Austin was not easy and the TCU coaches did an excellent job of making Reggie feel welcome on their campus. Coach Patterson gave Reggie a great vision of the Horned Frogs defeating Oklahoma at Amon Carter Stadium and how Reggie could help make that happen for TCU football. However, playing at the University of Texas is a special opportunity and one the Reggie is very excited about."

Burnt Orange Beat will have more about Reggie Wilson's decision to commit after Tuesday's availability.
