For the second time in less than a week, an Austin Westlake player has accepted a preferred walk-on spot with the Texas Longhorns, as safety Doak Wilson announced his decision on Thursday:
The 6’1, 180-pounder will join teammate Jake Ehlinger, a linebacker and the younger brother of quarterback Sam Ehlinger who announced his decision last Saturday.
Unlike Ehlinger and several other recent prospects to accept preferred walk-on spots with the Longhorns, Walker doesn’t have an extensive offer list, but he does report an offer from Air Force and that he’s a College Board NHRP Scholar.
Wilson runs track for Westlake, participating in the 110m hurdles, 300m hurdles, the triple jump, and 4x200 relay. As a senior, he recorded 74 tackles, five tackles for loss, and seven passes broken up.
