Shreveport star making waves

Trey Wilson has seen his stock soar in recent weeks. With offers on the table from a handful of schools including, TCU, SMU, Tulane and La. Tech, the talented defender is becoming a house hold name. Standing 5'11" and weighing 180 pounds, Wilson possesses ideal size for the cornerback position at the collegiate level.

PurpleMenace.Com caught up with Trey to get the latest on his recruitment.

"Well, to tell you the truth, it's really started taking off lately. I have two new offers, one from Vanderbilt and the other from ULM (University of Louisiana-Monroe). It's been picking up a lot actually" said Wilson.

Just this week, Wilson decided to take his talents to Austin, TX to see how he stacked up against the competition at the Texas Longhorn camp.

"I just got back from the camp in Austin, it went really good, I was named a standout player at the camp and the Texas coaches told me that they liked me a lot and said they were keeping an eye on me. I plan on going to LSU's camp sometime this year too."

With the job the TCU coaches did in recruiting Louisiana for the 08' class, fans want to know if the coaches will take the same approach to out of state recruiting this year as well. If Wilson is any indication, the onslaught on Texas' neighbor to the east may not be far away.

"I like what I know about TCU so far. I know a little about them but not a lot. I just got their defensive back coaches number, Coach Jennings, and I plan on calling him" said Wilson. "I was supposed to come to Ft. Worth for a visit but I haven't been able to make it yet. I plan on coming sometime this summer because TCU is a school that I'm considering."

With 10 top notch prospects already on board for the Frogs 09' class, the coaching staff would love to add Wilson to the mix as a shut down corner for Coach Patterson's dominating defense. With summer in full swing for prospects nation wide, the next three months will see many of them make their college choices. That's the plan for Wilson as well.

"I would like to make my decision sometime this summer before my season starts this fall but if it doesn't happen then I'll do it whenever it feels right" said Wilson. "I'm mainly looking for a school that plays tough competition but I'm looking for a place to get early playing time too."

With about two and a half months to go before high school football kicks off, the Frogs patiently wait to see who will pull the trigger next. Could it be Wilson, only time will tell, but the Frogs are ready when he is.
