With its second committment for the 2014 recruiting class from Argyle, TX announced on Sunday, K-State appears to be developing a foothold in this small community 40 miles northwest of Dallas. Following KSU’s 6th verbal commitment in LB Sam Sizelove on Saturday, Sizelove’s high school teammate Connor Wilson is the 7th member of the recruiting class of 2014 to announce his intention to matriculate to Manhattan.
Connor is the first member of the secondary to commit to K-State, and had offers from Houston, North Texas, SMU, and Texas Tech on the table. Connor is not currently ranked on any of the major recruiting websites, but if his listed measurables are correct he has the potential to be a beast on the field.
Wilson is listed at 6’2″ and 205 lbs. He already runs a 4.6 second 40 yard dash, and appears to provide a solid combination of height (Bill Snyder loves players who can jump for interceptions), size, and speed. Along with Sizelove, Wilson was also a first team selection to the Texas All-State 3A roster.
Although Wilson was unable to attend the Purple-White spring game due to regional track competition, he will be on campus for a summer camp and plans to attend the game against Baylor in October. He made 134 tackles his junior year to go along with nine interceptions and seven passes defended. The one thing to watch is that he dislocated his hip during a playoff game last fall, although his current competition in track and field suggests he is recovered, healthy, and ready to dominate his senior year before joining the Wildcat football team next year.
