Dontre Wilson talks 'The Opening'

Desoto (Texas) running back Dontre Wilson had an up and down week at The Opening. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound prep seemed a bit tired through the first day on campus which was Sparq training.

Ideally, other than agility and 40-yard dash, Sparq training isn't really suited for smaller athletes.

On day two, Wilson broke into his team and wasn't targeted much in the passing game. His team was forcing the ball downfield and wasn't focused on the outlets. But on the final day, he hit his stride and had a chance to showcase his talent and incredible burst.

"It was a really cool camp overall," Wilson said. "Once I started getting the ball I had a chance to make plays. We played hard and got a lot closer than most gave us credit for."

The nation's No. 109 ranked player said since his commitment to Oregon, he has had almost no phone calls, including media.

"It's been pretty nice," he said. "Everyone quit calling including the coaches and media. Which is fine by me, I'm committed to Oregon. There's nothing new to discuss really."

Up next for the speedster is a trip to Florida for Gridiron Kings. Following that he will participate in a nationals event for track.

Wilson said numerous recruits at The Opening and from his local area have asked about Oregon. He wasn't able to provide too many specific names but the interest is there from fellow recruits.
