On Saturday, the Texas Longhorns extended an offer to Texas A&M Aggies commit Tyree Wilson, a weak-side defensive end from New London West Rusk:

Wilson, who pledged to the Aggies in June of last year but did not sign during the early period, subsequently set up an official visit to Austin for January 26, though Texas A&M coaches may work to keep that from happening.
An official visit to Arkansas is also set up for Wilson this month, prompting a flip pick in the 247Sports Crystal Ball.
The interest in Texas and Arkansas, and unwillingness to sign during the early period, indicates that Wilson is seriously considering other options.
At 6’5.5 and 230 pounds, Wilson has considerable upside — he’s considered a consensus three-star product, but turned in a monster senior season with 123 tackles, 39 tackles for loss, five sacks, five forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries.
Texas does not currently hold any commitments or signatures from prospects at the position, but continues to target Conroe Oak Ridge standout Joseph Ossai, also a high priority for Texas A&M, and late-rising Owasso (Okla.) product Courtre Alexander.
