    DE Devante Wilson to visit for Texas game

    Some good giddy-up for such a big guy....really likes Nebraska & Coach Pelini....we are one of his two leaders right now....will be visiting the weekend of the Texas game.... Corona is not far from where I live....might have to check him out....

    Teaser on Rivals:

    Arizona and Nebraska have moved to the front of the pack for DeVante Wilson, a three-star weak-side defensive end from Corona, Calif., who plans to take official visits to both schools and probably won't make a commitment until after his senior season.

    40 time: 4.7

    He's 6' 3", 215lbs. and will be closer to about 235-240 by the time he hits the field at the next level. Exactly the kind of playmaking defensive player coaches are looking for. The nation's 21st ranked defensive end going into the season

    D.W.: Yes, USC is the school I would like to receive an offer from. It's the school I've dreamed about playing for since I was a little kid."
