Bob Stoops reminisced this week on Julian Wilson’s camp performance the summer before his senior year of high school as Wilson was working to earn a scholarship offer.
“That’s what I loved about him,” Stoops said. “He was jumping in every chance, cutting in line and getting in and competing every opportunity he got or even jumping in front of people to have a chance to go against somebody. I remember that very well.”
Stoops said while Wilson’s ability and size earned the eventual offer, that performance was the “clincher” that made Stoops and his staff extend it.
“I loved his attitude to compete,” Stoops said.
After playing most nickelback the past two seasons, Wilson is the leading candidate to take over at cornerback opposite Zack Sanchez.
