Argyle senior defensive back Connor Wilson has withdrawn his commitment to Kansas State and orally committed to Texas Tech, Argyle head coach Todd Rodgers said on Tuesday afternoon.
The news was first broken on Twitter by 247Sports.com’s Landon Wright. Wilson joins Argyle wide receiver Ian Sadler, who has also orally committed to Texas Tech.
Through three games this season, Wilson has two interceptions, 15 tackles, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He’s also swatted away four passes.
Wilson originally committed to Kansas State back in April along with fellow Argyle teammate Sam Sizelove. However, that was Wilson’s only offer at the time.
Since then, he’s received offers from the likes of Houston, Kansas State and North Texas and Texas Tech was the one that stole Wilson’s from the arms of the Wildcats. Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury was in Argyle to witness the team’s 53-7 win over Paris last Friday, a day after the Red Raiders defeated TCU 20-10.
At the beginning of August, Wilson said he was talking to Oklahoma State and the Cowboys had increased their interest in him but hadn’t offered. Kingsbury and his coaching staff apparently liked what he saw and pulled the trigger now.
Meanwhile, Sadler was quite happy to see his teammate potentially join him in Lubbock.

Texas A&M showing interest in Hedlund, Sizelove
Along with Wilson’s flip to Texas Tech, Rodgers confirmed that star kicker Cole Hedlund has been offered by Texas A&M. Hedlund holds the national record for most field goals made in a season and ranked as the No.5 kicker in the nation by Kohl’s Kicking.
Rodgers also said the Aggies have expressed serious interest in Argyle linebacker Sam Sizelove. Sizelove has already orally committed to Kansas State, but there’s still time for him to change his mind if he chooses to do so.
