According to Houston television station KHOU, Air Force football recruit Jordan Wilson was killed Sunday night when the car in which he was a passenger hit a tree. You can find the station’s report here on its web site.

Wilson was a 6-foot, 240-pound lineman from Conroe High in Conroe, Texas. He was planning to attend the prep school prior to coming to the academy. The Courier of Montgomery County wrote this article about Wilson when he chose Air Force.

Air Force coaches are not allowed to comment on recruits before they get to the academy, but I did talk to Wilson’s coach, Roger Holtkamp, around national signing day. Holtkamp had high praise for Wilson, and mentioned Wilson played both sides of the football, “which is unheard of in (Texas) 5A football,” Holtkamp said.
