Dontre Wilson Sets Announcement Time

By Alex on February 4, 2013 at 12:20a

Word spread today that Dontre Wilson may have committed to Ohio State, but those reports were premature. Wilson's coach told Derek that his star athlete will decide between Ohio State, Texas, and Oregon, where he is currently committed, at 9 PM Central Time on Monday.

The latest we are hearing is that the staff is feeling good about where things stand with Wilson, and if he does end up committing to the Buckeyes it would give Urban Meyer another tremendous athlete to add to his offense at the slot receiver position next season.

Stay tuned to 11W as we bring you the latest info on Wilson and other prospects on the recruiting trail.

9pm or 9am?  Isn't 9pm at night a strange time to announce?

I would love to see Wilson and Zeke together in this offense. 

The South will NOT rise again!

I'm torn: happy that I can work without hitting f5 147 straight times starting at 9am, and being sad that I have to work a full day without the impending "yes/no" note from my latest recruiting fling.
Still might curious how this impacts, or how things go in general, with Zeke. Regardless of what people say about us being stacked at RB, or these guys playing the same role...losing a guy that was solid to OSU for 9 months hurts (if we do lose him, obviously tbd)

7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing

Wilson,EzE,marshall, talk about some tremendous interior playmakers at urban's disposal. Then add in the nasty running backs, x-brax, and wideouts like devin and Corey Smith. Oh yeah, plus TE position. It's going to get ugly on the big ten real soon!

One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.

Sooo... 10 p.m. Ohio time?

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Hmm, i wonder why so late.

Only 7:00 pm in Eugene.  Not as late, but still seems like an odd time.

If the cards end up falling the way many are hoping, this team is going to be scary good in the future.... SCARY good.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

FWIW Rivals Mike has changed his picks from Oregon to OSU for Wilson and from Tenn to OSU for Vonn Bell. Every analyst also has OSU keeping EZE. Two days friends!!

Will the announcement be televised at all? Anyone know?

He's announcing it on a local TV station during their news broadcast.

If someone found out the new station, a small chance they would have a web stream that the 11W maniacs here could tune into.  I just tried Google and nothing yet of substance.  Maybe someone smarter than me can find out before tonight.

From a different thread here.  Credit to OSU1995.  Looks like they haev a live stream available:
"He will be announcing on Dallas Fox 4. It probably won't be at 9pm sharp as other news is transpiring in DFW, but I will post his decision as soon as I see it. I will be huddled around my TV - it will probably be the first time I watch the news at 9."

Wow!  I am one fan who has tried to curb the enthusiasm and sleep at night, so I have kept low expectations and hold things loosely.  But with the news today of how wilson and bell are leaning, I am losing control.  If these two sign, it is beyond my wildest expectation.
