Meet the new guys: Ishmael Wilson

As Texas A&M's fall camp draws closer, AggieYell.com will introduce each of the players who are arriving in College Station this summer. Next up: offensive lineman Ishmael Wilson.

High School: Dallas Bishop Dunne

Height/Weight: 6'4", 280 lbs.

Awards/Recognitions: Rivals 250 member; TAPPS 1-5A First Team All-District; Offense-Defense All-American

Why the Aggies wanted him: With the remarkable 2010 class becoming upperclassmen and the future of the offensive line unclear, the Aggies needed to start rebuilding with the 2013 class. While A&M seems to have a group set for this year with Germain Ifedi's strong spring at right guard, backups are not set in stone at either guard spot or left tackle. Wilson comes with a nasty disposition and a non-stop motor, two things that appealed to the A&M coaching staff right off the bat. He's also good quickness and solid lateral movement, which means he could play either tackle or guard at the college level.

Ironically, Wilson wasn't expected to be a guy who ended up at A&M. Texas figured he'd make a cursory visit to the Aggies' junior day, come to Austin the next week and commit. If he didn't commit to them, LSU was supposed to be the major player. He never made it to either place, as his visit to College Station blew him away and led to an immediate commitment on Feb. 18, 2012 that never wavered.

Likelihood of playing in 2013 (5 being probable starter, 1 being near-certain redshirt): 3. He's probably more prepared to play than Joas Aguilar and has the flexibility to play inside or out. A solid fall camp could move him into the two deep, particularly at right guard.
