Wilson follows brothers lead

When he walks on to the field, it's hard not to see the resemblance in Corey Wilson to his older brother.
The Carrollton (Texas) Creekview wide reciever Wilson is the younger brother of Oklahoma and NFL wide receiver Travis Wilson who also starred at the talent-rich high school in North Texas. Though the younger family member may not be as big, he brings the speed and athleticism to back up his already full load of offers.
The NIKE Training Camp definitely started things off with a bang.
"I wasn't getting any phone calls, no offers, nothing really before the camp," Wilson said. "Since the camp, I have had a bunch of coaches coming by the school, I've picked up some offers and have had a bunch of phone calls."
"The funny thing is I thought I could have done better at the camp."
The camp included a 4.47-second 40-yard dash, a 31-inch vertical leap, and 11 bench press reps.
Those phone calls in May and offers that have come include ones from Arkansas, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech. The Sooners, where his brother played, have been hosting him this past week at their camp.
Wilson took the SAT also before showing up in Norman and so far it looks as if Wilson is impressing. He also is drawing closer to a coveted offer from the Sooners.
"I talked to coach Kevin Sumlin and he said I was the kind of player they were looking for," Wilson said. "Of course, I've already been up there before, so they haven't done too much recruiting. They've talked to me a little bit, but it's been mostly with my mom."
Texas Tech's camp is also going to be a stop for Wilson along with the Todd Dodge passing camp with the Garland team.
"I've always felt like I had the ability to play at the college level," he said. "I just felt like the style of offense we ran didn't really give me my chance. I'm just excited because it's all becoming a reality."
