A day after Argyle junior linebacker Sam Sizelove orally committed to Kansas State, teammate and junior defensive back Connor Wilson quickly followed suit.
Argyle head coach Todd Rodgers confirmed on Sunday that Wilson has orally committed to become a member of the Wildcats’ 2014 signing class.
Of course, oral commitments are non-binding. The first day a member of the class of 2014 can sign with a school is Feb. 5, 2014.
It’s Argyle’s third Football Bowl Subdivision commitment this spring. Junior Ian Sadler committed to Texas Tech last week.
We had figured for at least a week that Wilson and Sizelove were planning on committing to K-State. Wilson, 6-2, moved to Argyle from Coppell last year and he put up big numbers in the Eagles’ secondary.
He had 126 tackles, eight interceptions, five pass break-ups, one forced fumble and four fumble recoveries. He was huge for the Argyle secondary last year and missed the team’s playoff loss against Gilmer because of a hip-related injury.
He was also an Associated Press first-team all-state selection, further solidifying his status as one of Class 3A’s best defensive backs.
Sizelove was another highly sought-after recruit. Sizelove compiled a team-high 140 tackles and had three forced fumbles last season.
He’s a very impressive linebacker and held offers from places like Baylor, Iowa State, and North Texas, his dad’s alma mater.
His power can be seen below, when he wiped out former Celina senior and current Texas center Jake Raulerson last season on a punt return (the sideline reaction toward the end of the video is outstanding).
