The quick-handed Texan was excited at the thought of playing his college tennis for the Boilermakers, but he was also planning to visit more schools before making the biggest decision of his young career. He asked for time to think things over.

"Purdue was the place to go," said Wilson, a 17-year-old senior at Ronald Reagan High School in San Antonio, Tex.

He dialed the number of Purdue Coach Tim Madden. And with that, the Tennis Recruiting Network's No. 49-ranked player in the Class of 2008 made his verbal commitment to Purdue.

"I'm really excited," he said. "I feel like all my hard work has paid off."
