Ishmael Wilson commits to A&M

Ishmael Wilson is a big time OL prospect from Texas, but originally from LA. He moved to TX after Katrina, but has been a lifelong LSU fan. He came to our JR Day a few weeks ago and was practically begging for an offer. Les said he did not have time to properly evaluate Wilson's film, so he would not be offering him at that time until he could further evaluate him. (I even remember the TX message boards blowing up over how dumb Miles was for not offering.) Wilson was upset, as most kids are, that he did not receive the offer; but he still said LSU was in the lead with TX right behind.

He was then supposed to go to TX Jr Day last week, but he and his father got a flat tire the night before and did not get home til after 2 am; so he skipped TX Jr Day because he was exhausted. Even though he said he was upset that he couldn't attend and was hoping to attend their next Jr Day, it seemed to open a small window for Les to extend an offer and maybe get a commit before his next visit. But no offer came and Wilson went on A&M's Jr Day this weekend, and got an offer and committed soon after.

Hopefully this is just a case of him jumping on the first real offer he got, and we still have a shot to flip him if we ever offer... or maybe he chose A&M because he is bitter towards LSU for not offering him before. I am not sure how this is going to play out, but Les may have let a very good one slip right through his fingers...
