Houston Dekaney four-star wide receiver Jonah Wilson announced his decommitment Saturday from Texas.

Wilson is the No. 249 overall recruit in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

The 2023 On300 ranking has Wilson as the No. 162 prospect and the No. 24 wide receiver in the country.

He currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of 40k. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.

Wilson caught up with Inside Texas last week and talked about why he was confident in his commitment to Texas.

“As a wide receiver I was told always make your quarterback look good even on his worst throws,” Wilson said. “But I don’t think I have to do too much at making those two look good. Having a good quarterback does a lot for a wide receiver. So that should be fun.”

Jonah Wilson Scouting Summary

Thickly built, x-type wide receiver whose long strides allow him to eat yardage and take the top off of defenses while also “little boy-ing” inferior corners on 50-50 balls. Totaled 34 receptions for 469 yards and 8 touchdowns during his junior campaign. Ran a 22.71 200m during his junior track and field season. Strong hands at the catch point. Not overly twitched up or shifty, more of a straight-line mover. Strength and mass throughout the frame allows him to pull through weaker arm tackles with the ball in his hands. Role player at the next level who needs to develop more fast-twitch muscles in order to raise his athletic ceiling. Basketball player as well.
