Jeffery Wilson confirms he has committed to UNT

Jeffery Wilson, an all-state running back from Elkhart, confirmed this morning that he has committed to UNT following a weekend visit to the school.

Wilson rushed for 2,749 yards last season when he was the MVP of District 11-2A, Division I.

“They offered me pretty early and have always been the No. 1 team,” Wilson said. “I have family in Dallas and they have a great coaching staff. I liked them all and the players were awesome.”

Wilson was recruited by UNT special teams coordinator/running backs coach Tommy Perry.
