Sumner (Wash.) linebacker Ben Wilson, ranked as a four-star prospect by Scout.com, announced Friday on Twitter that he has committed to TCU for the football class of 2018, the Tacoma News Tribune reported.
“The biggest factor for me was that it reminds of Sumner,” Wilson told The News Tribune. “It’s a small campus, the coaches are similar to (Sumner) coach (Keith) Ross, they will push you to your best and they showed me that on my visit, as well. It just felt like home.”
Wilson was also considering offers from Arizona State, Cal, Louisville, Utah, Vanderbilt and Washington State, the News Tribune reported.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound is ranked as the 13th best inside linebacker in the nation, third-best in the West Region and best in the state, the newspaper reported. He is rated a three-star by 247Sports composite.

As a junior Wilson had 123 solo tackles and 78 assisted tackles.
“It’s just a lot of stress off my shoulders. It feels good to be a Carter Boy,” he told The News Tribune.
The hashtag #CarterBoys2018 is for the 2018 recruiting class of the Horned Frogs, who play at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
A third baseman who led Sumner in hitting, Wilson said he’d also like to play baseball for the Horned Frogs.
