H.S. Football: Palestine's Owens leads strong class of area recruits



A little farther south, the recruitment of Elkhart star running back Jeffrey Wilson is also picking up.

The senior-to-be, who ran for more than 2,000 yards in 2012 and will be the top returning rusher in any 11-man classification in 2013, picked up an official offer from Louisiana-Monroe earlier this month.

It’s the first official offer for Wilson, but likely won’t be the last.

EHS coach Sam Wells said that numerous programs have either called or stopped in to talk to Wilson, with Baylor, Houston, Tulsa and SMU among the schools that are currently interested in his star player.
