Ten minutes after Wakeland High School offensive lineman Connor Stroh announced his commitment to the Longhorns, more good news came for Steve Sarkisian and his staff on the recruiting front. Dekaney (Houston, TX) wideout Jonah Wilson, a 6'3" 195 lb. prospect and the 34th ranked wide receiver in the country (247 Sports Composite) gave his verbal pledge to the Longhorns on Sunday.
Wilson held offers from no less than 15 programs including Texas A&M, Ohio State, LSU, Houston, Arkansas and Baylor among others. The speedster, who also runs track at Dekaney, is fresh off his visit to Austin in what is amounting to a massive recruiting weekend for the Texas program.
He is a tall, athletic quick player that played quarterback for the Wildcats before making the move to wideout. In his two years on the varsity program at Dekaney he has caught 52 passes for a total of 891 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Wilson becomes the 11th commit in the 2023 cycle and joins fellow 4-star wide receiver Ryan Niblett (Aldine Eisenhower - Houston, TX) as the other true wide receiver in the class.
