As we reported yesterday, we were told that Wilson has decided on Ohio State.
Here's what another person had to say about it to us today.
"He just fell in love with Ohio State," the source said of Wilson.
Is his recruitment done? "Oh yeah, it's done. He's Ohio State."

Hope he likes cold weather.
Care to comment on Ohio State landing JT Barrett, Mike Mitchell, and Dontre Wilson?
tOSU went 12-0 and Urban Meyer can recruit with the best of them. Pretty simple imo.
Meyer is doing what Mack should have done after the MNC. Hopefully Mack allows Porter to do more OOS recruiting.
I think Texas really mis-evaluated two of them - Barrett and Mitchell.
With Wilson, I think he wanted to get away for school.
Seems to be a reoccurring problem.
I can understand Barrett. Not for Swoopes per se, but at least you can understand how they might like someone else. The evaluation of Mitchell was just poor.

Yup. The fact that Mack didn't get a single recruit out of Cali after back to back Rosebowls wins will forever stupefy me.
Look at who the area recruiter and position coach are for him.
Just twist that knife into our side a little more Bobby...lol
The decision not to offer was the DCs. The area recruiter brought him to the table which is all they can really do.
Yeah, Texas has a whining, dickless imbecile running the program and getting his head beat in by his competitors on an ongoing basis and Urban Meyer is as good and ruthless as any of them in the business. Imagine if Mack Brown had retired to an ESPN gig and Texas had hired Urban Meyer after last season.
Anyone who honestly looks at this class and calls it anything better than "solid", which is a reach, is either paid to talk about Texas or lives in a fantasyland. The state is getting cherrypicked by outsiders again and ATM is doing what it wants. Welcome to 1987.
But I don't want to go back to the days of He-Man being cool!!!!
I do. Things were a lot of fun when I all had to sweat was Little League or Pop Warner practice and what the next He-Man/Transformer/GI Joe/Nintendo Game was that I wanted. Oh, and watching Eric Metcalf and thinking that he'd surely win the Heisman was amusing in an ignorantly innocent way.
That was a great summarization of our head coach close. It's maddening that he and Dodds still have jobs. Does anybody care?
College football recruiting in Texas abhors a vacuum. The University of Texas football program currently occupies much less space in the state than it did a few years ago. Darwinian forces have acted accordingly and the space is now occupied again.
For the good of the program Mack should have resigned in 2010. The proof is taking years to come to light, and the damage will take years to undo.
Rad, Kix cereal, a Daisy BB gun and Big Red.
Ah, to be a kid again.
its BS Mr.BS
The SEC of signatures....
Well said. I laughed, sadly.
I just have to say, I love Texas fans they know whats bs and whats not just straight shooters the way I wish more of us were
When everyone runs out...we run in. Support your firemen.
He is causing problems for the program.
His defense sucks so bad that recruits are shying away from it.
We can go around and around in circles for years but this program is not fixable until Mack steps aside.
Guess Mack kept Diaz one last year due to the all in philosophy - if Mack would have changed coordinators, learning a new defense might have caused problems
Question, does Diaz recruit? If yes, please let me know the recruit he was successful in signing
