It was about two weeks ago that Katy (Tex.) defender Collin Wilder said that a number of other programs were in pursuit of him. But no matter what, the always had a place for the first school that offered a scholarship more than a year ago.
"With Texas Tech, I absolutely have a close connection with them. I keep in touch with the coaches and they will be a front runner until the end," Wilder said a few weeks back. "I feel pretty good about the Red Raider program."
Well, it's obvious that this feeling was real. On Father's Day 2014, the 5-foot-11, 186-pound Wilder made the call.
He announced this via twitter.
"After a lot of prayer and guidance, I have decided to verbally commit to Texas Tech University! #GunsUp."
As stated, the Red Raiders was the only offer in hand for Wilder, though Nebraska, TCU and Baylor started showing some interest as of late.
Wilder was a big part of the championship caliber Katy program where he recorded 115 tackles, nine pass break ups and five interceptions.
