It was a packed summer for Midland (Tex.) Christian 2015 offensive lineman Johnny Wilson, who managed to hit a number of in-state camps during the off-season.
"It was a very busy summer. There was no slacking around. I attended the NUC combine I went to a lot of camps this summer: North Texas, Texas State, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, and TCU," he said.
The 6-foot-4, 280-pounder had been receiving interest from the majority of those programs, as he was invited to camp at all but Texas A&M and TCU.
Wilson says that he actually grew up a fan of Texas Tech's program and is intrigued by the changes that have taken place over the past year.
"I really like Texas Tech's coaching staff. They are very young and energetic; it's high-tempo. I like that," he said.
With interest headed his way, Wilson worked hard over the summer to hone his skill set for the junior season, stating that his "pass protection really improved over the summer."
The high school season is just over a week away and Wilson, who primarily plays left tackle, is focused on helping out his team come fall.
"It's awesome getting back on the field. First day of pads was really exciting for everyone; we missed that hard hitting," he said.
The lineman, who lists his "quick feet, especially for someone [his] size," as one of his greatest strengths on the field, feels optimistic about how his team will fare over the next few months.
"We have one of the biggest offensive lines that Midland Christian has ever had and we are returning a lot of players, like our quarterback, so I think we should be pretty good," he said.
