Wilson changes it up

Carrollton (Texas) Creekview wide receiver Corey Wilson was close to pulling the trigger last week. Apparently, it's going to be a little bit longer now.

The 6-foot, 184-pound pass-catcher, rated as the No. 34 overall prospect in Texas, says that Oklahoma remains his leader. While Wilson's top school isn't a surprise, his No. 2 team is.

"Oklahoma is out in front, but right behind them is Colorado State," Wilson said. "I've had a feeling for a while about them and coach Darrell Funk has been recruiting me. He says I'm the No. 1 receiver on their board and that helps. He's not too overboard recruiting me, but then again, he shows they're interested."

Of course the Sooners, where his brother Travis Wilson, played are definitely still the No. 1 school. The coaching staff has told him that they're aren't a ton of spots for receivers this year and that may factor into his decision.

"I know that they have two spots for receiver and that Terrance Toliver is one of their targets," Wilson said. "If a receiver commits soon, that will quicken things up."

Wilson says that if he had to name a third and fourth team, it would be between Kansas and Kansas State. Looking at all options is what he wants to do.

Before, he thought he was ready to commit, but apparently needs just a little more time.

"I started thinking about it," he said. "I was kind of rushing the whole thing, so I'm backing off and I'm going to take my time. My decision is still like I've always said. It could come between now and the beginning of the season."
