4-star ATH Wilson still solid to Oregon

1/1/2013

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Oregon coach Chip Kelly is rumored to be high on the list for several NFL coaching jobs, but ESPN 150 athlete commit Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto) said he remains a solid commitment to the Ducks.

The 5-foot-10, 174-pound prospect said his relationship with Oregon running backs coach Gary Campbell is key to his not considering other options.

"I've heard that if Coach Kelly leaves, then Coach Helfrich, the offensive coordinator, would be the new coach," Wilson said. "So it really doesn't bother me at all. I have a strong relationship with Coach Campbell, and I don't think he's going anywhere. I'm still a solid commit to Oregon. Coach Campbell and I have always been close, he was a big reason I chose Oregon."

Wilson, who won't participate in the Under Armour All-America Game because of an ankle injury sustained late in his high school career, said he has not heard from any other schools and is planning to enroll at Oregon in the summer.

He leads an Oregon recruiting class ranked No. 22 in the country. The No. 52 player in the ESPN 150, the standout athlete is the Ducks' highest rated commitment.
