Last night, Young tweeted: "Dontre Wilson's coach has informed me to expect a 9 pm central time announcement tomorrow for his star athlete. ‪#Buckeyes‬ ‪#Ducks‬ ‪#Texas‬"

According to the site, "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."

On December 9th, Wilson discussed his commitment to Oregon in this video from Duck FB News:

But when Chip Kelly fled the coup, Wilson opened up his search, taking official visits to Texas and Ohio State.

Losing Wilson, the 5'10,165 lb RB from DeSoto TX, would be a big loss for the Ducks, but they did extend an offer to Kani Benoit, who verbally committed after his visit to Eugene over the weekend.

5'11", 205 lbs, Phoenix (verbally committed to UNLV but visited Oregon Feb 2 with no offer)
