Dontre Wilson Flips from Oregon

When the rumors started that Chip Kelly was considering jumping to the NFL rumors started swirling that several of the Oregon commits could be flippable and that Coach Meyer would pounce on them all but in reality he only had his mind focused on one of them and after Chip took the job in Philly he pounced. Landing the 24th prospect in the 2013 class tonight.


Dontre Wilson is 5’10” 175 lbs RB/WR from Desoto, Texas. Wilson who has been a commit to Oregon since last May has been wavering on his commitment since Chip Kelly was rumored to be heading to the NFL. Once that actually happened he full on started taking visits to other schools. He has visited Ohio State and his home state school Texas in the past few weeks. Dontre is the epitome of what Urban Meyer has been looking for to fill his Percy Harvin role. He is a RB who can play slot receiver run jet sweeps and be a part of the pistol package as a RB. He is a burner in the speed dept. and has the kind of moves that breaks ankles. Rivals ranks him a 4 star and the no. 100 recruit nationally. ESPN ranks him a 4 star and the 55th best recruit in the nation. Scout ranks him a 4 star and the 10th best RB in the nation. 247sports ranks him a 4 star and the 113th best recruit in the nation. Below you can see his highlight reel.


  1. .. and so it starts..

  2. Holy playmakers Batman!

    QB: JT Barrett-4 Star
    RB: Ezekiel Elliot-4 Star
    RB: Dontre Wilson-4 Star
    WR: Jalin Marshall-5 Star
    WR: Corey Brown-4 Star
    WR: Taivon Jacobs-3 Star
    TE: Marcus Baugh: 4 Star

    All of the above players are taylor made for the spread option offense…and many will play early.

    And rumor has it James is an OSU lean as well. If Timmons picks Florida Tuesday, James could be a Buckeye come Wednesday.

    Just a wealth of talent on offense.

    PS. The defense may have better recruits than the offense…if that is possible.

  3. Do you think Urban told Dontre that Mack Brown is old and the game has passed him by? Because those are pretty much the exact words he said in my version of his recruitment.

    Tressel against Brown, I think this kid flips to Texas. As much as it pains me to say that.
