The 5-11, 285 pound Wilson played defensive end and nose tackle during the spring and may do the same during the regular season.
Chris Pompey, who came to Eastern Kentucky with Wilson from Manatee, did not play in the spring game because of an ankle injury. But the 6-3, 225-pound linebacker had been reportedly playing well up until that time.
His brother, Quinton Pompey, made his presence felt in the Iowa State spring game by notching three tackles, including one for a two yard loss. Another Manatee High product, Quinton Bundrage, caught one pass for six yards.
Pompey is listed as the third nose tackle behind a junior and senior on Iowa State’s depth chart and Bundrage is a backup receiver. Both will be freshmen next season as far as their athletic eligibility.
