Houston (Texas) Klein Forest wide-out Johnathan Wilson is beginning to emerge as a sleeper prospect, receiving official visit invitations from schools with high-octane offenses.
Wilson (6-3, 190-pounds) will visit Iowa January 19th and Kansas the following weekend with offers nearing. The newly built Iowa State staff is also pursuing Wilson.
"I've been told by both schools that they don't usually offer visits to kids they aren't going to offer," Klein Forest coach Ken Hammock said. "I'm shocked that no one has picked him up yet. He's so athletic and he was our primary receiver this year. I don't know what else he could have done over the past two years."
Wilson was a first-team, all-district selection for the second time in two years, and starts on the Eagle basketball team. Texas A&M-Kingsville has offered along with Texas State.
While Wilson is the Eagles' 2007 headliner, Klein Forest has several junior prospects in quarterback Ford Lakin and defensive end Kendrick Payne.
"Both guys are Division I prospects," Hammock said. "Lakin will be a three-year starter and has thrown will over 3,000 yards. Payne is a stud and is up to 265 pounds. He will dominate next year."
Lakin and Payne were also first-team, all-district selections as juniors.
