Texas A&M transfer DE Tyree Wilson lands with Big 12 program
About six months after Tyree Wilson entered the transfer portal at Texas A&M, the defensive end has found a new home.
Texas Tech has announced that Wilson has joined the Red Raiders. Wilson is 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds from West Rusk, Texas. It is unclear if Wilson and Tech have appealed to the NCAA for immediate eligibility, but whenever he is cleared, he will have three years to play.
After redshirting his first year on campus in 2018, Wilson played in 11 games last season. In all, he had 12 total tackles including seven solos, three tackles for loss and a sack.
Wilson was recruited by former coach Kevin Sumlin and when coach Jimbo Fisher and defensive coordinator Mike Elko arrived, he was moved to the hybrid pass rusher/outside linebacker role.
After strongside DE Micheal Clemons was injured against Alabama, Wilson was moved to fill that void and was there the remainder of the season. But now there is an influx of recruits and newcomers for the spot Wilson planned to occupy such as Fadil Diggs, Donnell Harris and Braedon Mowry.
Coming out of high school, Wilson said he had offers from Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and TCU.
We’ve got a BIG addition to the defensive line.
