DALLAS - Baseball and football are certainly strong suits for Greenwood (Ark.) High School quarterback Tyler Wilson.
Coming in at 6-foot-2 3/4, 182 pounds at the Rivals.com Junior Day at SMU, Wilson talked about his first scholarship offer for football and also which other schools are showing a lot of early interest.
"I've got an offer from Tulsa, but Kansas State, Arkansas, and Georgia are also showing a lot of interest," Wilson said. "I wouldn't say they're the favorite, but Arkansas is right up the road and location is a big deal."
Wilson says that he's not in to making comparisons to NFL quarterbacks. However, he does say he likes to the leadership ability of one Super Bowl winning signal caller.
"I look up to Tom Brady," Wilson said. "I think he's a leader. I'm reading a book about him right now. I don't anything about throwing style or anything like that. I like him as a leader and what he brings to the game."
Wilson says that he's a ways away from making a decision. However, heading to the event on Saturday was certainly well worth the long drive.
"I got to come here, get to know some of the players that I'll hopefully see down the road," Wilson said. "I thought the speakers were great and it was really an educational experience."
