Recruiting is a season that never ends and this week our recruiting examination is wide receiver Jaedon Wilson out of DeSoto, Texas.
Offensive coordinator Kendall Briles is wanting the Arkansas offense to have some explosive tendencies. To accomplish this, the Razorbacks must have wide receivers that can stretch the field. Jaedon Wilson is a skill position recruit out of a state that the Arkansas Razorbacks must recruit well in order to be competitive in the SEC. Sam Pittman and his staff have repaired ties in Texas and made recruiting Texas a priority once again.
The high school football season is just getting going in Texas and Jaedon Wilson has been very impressive the past two games for DeSoto. Wilson has been on the receiving end of eight receptions for 169 yards. Wilson is averaging 21 yards per reception, which is an excellent yards per catch total. Wilson has the potential to have a terrific senior season on a state powerhouse.

It is easy to see why the Arkansas coaching staff has placed a priority on bringing Wilson to Fayetteville. Wilson is a player that can stretch the field and will go up and high point the football. He does a good job of changing his route to help the quarterback. The final positive attribute with Wilson is that he is a willing blocker for his teammates. Fans and coaches like to see a player that is unselfish and will deliver a block to spring his teammate free.
Meanwhile, the list of things to improve upon for Wilson is small. As Wilson develops and sees some snaps in college his route running will become much crisper. Wilson’s hands are consistent, and he will drop very few passes. I would expect Wilson to continue to develop and he has the ability and talent to be an SEC player. Look for the Arkansas Razorbacks to continue a strong recruitment of Wilson.
