It’s been a good Saturday on the recruiting trail for the Cowboys.

Melissa, Texas linebacker Gunnar Wilson announced his commitment to Oklahoma State on Saturday along with Arkansas offensive lineman Chauncey Johnson. Listed at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Wilson chose OSU over offers from UTSA, Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech and others.

Wilson spoke with PFB this week about his commitment and what it means to be a Cowboy.

PFB: Why Oklahoma State?

Wilson: “I’ve been watching Oklahoma State since I was about in seventh grade or eighth grade. I mean, I just like the culture there. I like Coach Gundy. I like what they do there. They have a winning program. They’re always consistent, and they have people drafted.”

PFB: Why have you been watching OSU since middle school?

Wilson: “Well, my family is basically all A&M fans. So, they were playing Texas A&M in the bowl game [the 2019 Texas Bowl]. So, that was the first time I watched them. They lost the game, but I kind of liked their jersey colors. Then I went and I started watching them more. They’re actually good, and they’re ranked stuff like that. It was just consistent since then.”

PFB: Was there a moment you thought to yourself, ‘this is it’?

Wilson: “We went to Coach Gundy’s house, it was a real family atmosphere there. That’s what I really liked about it. All the coaches had their wives there and their kids and all that stuff. Everyone was talking, having a good time.”
