When you're the brother of Travis Wilson, who starred at Oklahoma and is now in the NFL, you're going to get some early looks. However, Carrollton (Texas) Creekview speedster Corey Wilson is making his own name not only on his own, but with his family as well.
Wilson, the 6-foot, 184-pounder, isn't exactly the same type of receiver as his brother Travis was out of high school. The older brother had quite a bit of size and strength, but speed may be where the younger Wilson has the edge. That showed at the last two camps he attended at Texas Tech and Oklahoma. More offers are also coming in seemingly by the day.
"Well, I just got back from Texas Tech last week and they had already offered me," Wilson said. "Then, I got one from Purdue and Kansas. Oklahoma told my mom after the camp that they were offering me. I don't have anything in writing yet from them, so it's a verbal offer until I get it."
Wilson says that his two leaders include Oklahoma and Texas Tech. Since he's seen both campuses, it definitely gives Wilson a chance to compare both programs. From what he's seen so far, he says that the Sooners lead.
"Part of it is my brother who went there, but in the beginning he didn't want me to go there," Wilson said about Oklahoma. "He didn't want me to be in his shadow and wanted me to make my own name. Now, he's telling me about the good points of the school. I went to Texas Tech last week and I really liked what I saw there. I got to meet some of the players."
Even though Wilson's brother may be telling him about the good points of Oklahoma, that doesn't mean that he's getting pressure to decide right away.
"I was going to call Oklahoma up and commit, but Travis said to just let them know that they were the favorite and keep my options open," Wilson said. "He said that was one thing he would have done differently. It wasn't his decision to go to Oklahoma, but he could have enjoyed the recruiting process a little longer."
The advice was well received by Wilson, but he's not exaclty planning on a Signing Day decision.
"Hopefully I'll decide soon," he said. "If not before the season, it will be just after a few games or midway through."
