Carrollton (Texas) Creekview receiver Travis Wilson said he was impressed by a lot of things on his official visit to Texas A&M this weekend. So was he impressed enough to push A&M over Oklahoma, the team he was leaning heavily toward before the visit?
“It’s still pretty much the same thing before I went on the visit to A&M,” Wilson said. “A&M did a really good job and told m some things that sounded good, but I still really, really like OU.
“Coach (Cale) Gundy asked me to commit tonight. I told him that I want my mom to go up there and see the things that I see about OU. I want her to see the academics and the things that I like.”
Wilson said he did like several things about his visit to Aggieland – especially the crowd, the stadium and hanging out with redshirt freshman quarterback Jason Carter.
“Jason is a great guy, and I think I could really get along with him and play with him easily,” Wilson said. “We hung out and went to some parties and went to some player’s apartments after the game. I think we might be on the ESPN TV show because they were filming us. That was really cool.”
But Wilson said he still wasn’t sold on the Aggie passing attack – especially with the way A&M looked against Baylor.
“I’m just not 100 percent sold on them throwing the ball,” Wilson said.
“And their passes are just little hitch routes. I like OU’s offense because they spread the ball out and all of the receivers get in on the action. I’m not so sure that they’re going to open the offense up much with Reggie McNeal at A&M. I know from watching him at the 7-on-7 tournament that he’s a Michael Vick type guy that will run the option a lot and then pass in only certain situations.”
Either way, Wilson said A&M made up some ground after the visit and remains a solid No. 2. But when asked how heavily he is leaning toward Oklahoma, Wilson said he was about “90-95 percent” sure he was going to end up committing to the Sooners.
