Running back Dontre Wilson pushes OSU commit list to 24

By Dan Kadar Published: February 5, 2013

On Monday night, Texas running back/athlete Dontre Wilson committed to Ohio State.

The 2013 recruit originally committed to Oregon in May. But after the Ducks' Chip Kelly was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles, Wilson reopened his commitment.

Heading into Wilson's announcement Monday night, most recruiting analysts believed he would commit to OSU. But a late visit to the University of Texas left some in doubt.

Wilson is the second running back in head coach Urban Meyer's class this year, along with Ezekiel Elliott. Wilson, who is 5-foot-10, 165 pounds, is rated by most recruiting services as a four-star prospect. According to the 247Sports composite rankings, he's the nation's No. 107 overall prospect the 14th best player in Texas.

Moore ran for 1,895 yards and 37 touchdowns as a senior, and also had 37 receptions for 750 yards and five more scores.
