One of the most pleasant surprises early in the recruiting process in Texas has been Carrollton Creekview receiver Travis Wilson. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound speedster has gone from a talented prospect to a legit blue-chipper.
Just look at the attention he's getting now.
After a solid performance at the Texas Seven-on-Seven Tournament and several summer camps, Wilson's stock has done nothing but skyrocket. With scholarship offers Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Colorado and heavy interest from Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Purdue, Wilson is starting to really enjoy the recruiting process.
"It's starting to get crazy," Wilson said.
"Miami is really starting to get into the picture now. And then guys like Oklahoma and Purdue have been sending me a lot of stuff, too. I'm so excited about this. If we have a great season, then it's going to be the perfect senior season."
Miami is the newest team to enter the fray for Wilson. He said the Canes have been sending quite a bit of mail and the Miami coaches have been in contact with Wilson's coach at school and let him know that an offer might not be too far down the road.
The same goes for Oklahoma and Purdue. The Sooners and Boilermakers have told Wilson that he's one of the top receiver recruits. But then again, Wilson already has some very impressive offers from Colorado, A&M and Wisconsin.
"A&M has really been sending me a lot of mail, but Wisconsin must really want me," he said. "I mean, I get six letters a day from them. I've never been up there, but I'll probably go visit."
