For now, Wilson is playing basketball for the 10-1 Warriors. He said playing basketball is preventing him from gaining weight, but that he doesn't want to stop playing.

“We run all the time,” Wilson said. “All the other big-time (college football recruits) are in the weight room right now getting bigger, and I'm playing basketball losing weight. But I love basketball, so I'm gonna have to take a chance with that.”

COPELIN SWITCHES COMMITMENT TO MISSOURI

Broken Arrow defensive back Levi Copelin, who was also on The Oklahoman‘s All-State first team, has decommitted from Houston and will commit to Missouri this weekend on his official visit, he confirmed in a text message.

His switch was first reported by Rivals.com.

Copelin, who initially committed to Houston in October, was a jack of all trades for Broken Arrow as a senior. He intercepted eight passes, blocked four kicks and scored 12 total touchdowns, the last of which was a 40-yard reception in the Class 6A state championship loss to Tulsa Union.

“It's a bigger stage, probably a better experience and it's more of a home feeling for me,” Copelin said. “The SEC is definitely glamorous, and it's an offer I wasn't ready to refuse. It would be a dream come true to play for Missouri.”
