Wide receiver recruiting has come into focus for Texas football on the trail in the 2025 class early this offseason. Texas is targeting multiple blue-chip recruits from this highly touted group of in-state wideouts in the 2025 class.

One in-state wide receiver recruit that WR coach Chris Jackson and the Longhorns have not let up on in the last few months is the touted Pflugerville (TX) Weiss four-star and Oregon Ducks commit Adrian Wilson.

Texas football remains in pursuit of 4-Star Oregon WR commit Adrian Wilson

The 6-foot-1 and 170-pound receiver from North Austin has continued to receive priority treatment from Jackson and the Longhorns staff since he committed to Oregon last summer. Wilson told On3's Sam Spiegelman this week that Texas "likes me a lot".

Wilson felt the love from Texas's staff when he made a return visit to Austin for the first big Junior Day of the offseason on Jan. 20.

"Coach Jackson made sure he talked to me right away and he walked around with me and my family for a little bit and made me feel like I was at the top of his priority list."

The Junior Day visit was Wilson's first return trip to the Forty Acres since last summer.

Wilson has a busy visit schedule early this offseason

Texas and the Texas A&M Aggies were the two visits Wilson took to kick off the 2024 offseason in January. He has a good relationship with new Texas A&M WR coach Holmon Wiggins from his time on staff with the Alabama Crimson Tide for the last few years.

Wilson is also reportedly expected to make it back to Eugene for a visit to Oregon during the spring.

Expect the Longhorns and Aggie to continue to be factors in this recruitment entering the spring for the No. 9 wide receiver recruit in the 247Sports Composite.
