At the time he verballed to WSU in March, Wilson had offers from WSU and Louisiana-Lafayette. Three months later he now has double-digit offers, including rides from in-state Houston (about three hours away from New London) and other schools nearer to home such as Oklahoma State. He also recently attended a mini-camp at TCU, it appears from his Twitter.
“He’s just a great kid, great smile, a ‘Yes sir, No sir’ type of kid. He’s a great asset for any football team out there. He committed last night to Washington State but I still think there are going to be a ton of offers to come … especially in April and May when a of these colleges start coming into the office and seeing him in person. He doesn’t even turn 17 until the end of May,” his prep coach told CF.C when he pledged to Wazzu.
Washington State offered Wilson, who has a long reach at 6-5, 224 pounds and is still growing, back in February. Defensive coordinator Alex Grinch is running the recruiting point and had been recruiting Wilson six months before WSU offered.
Wilson is ranked 2 stars and classified as an outside linebacker on Scout.com.
He posted 74 tackles (13 for loss) as a junior, with an interception he returned for score, and two forced fumbles. He is classified on Scout.com as a linebacker but seems destined for a RUSH/DE role at the next level, with an emphasis on getting after the quarterback.
