Tech loses signee to medical issue

Texas Tech signee Connor Wilson won’t play college football because of an unspecified medical issue, Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday.

“He’s been basically medical redshirted,” Kingsbury said. “That’s how that ended up going. He’ll still be attending Texas Tech, but he won’t be playing for us.”

That means Tech will honorWilson’s scholarship agreement, but he won’t count against the FBS limit of 85 scholarship players.

 The 6-foot-1, 200-poundWilsonwas an honorable mention all-state safety last season for one of the top Class 3A programs in the state at Argyle. As a junior, he was credited with 126 tackles, eight interceptions and four fumble recoveries.

Wilson was an honorable mention all-state safety last season for one of the top Class 3A programs in the state at Argyle. Tech coaches projected him as an outside linebacker, and co-defensive coordinator Mike Smith said on national signing day Wilson reminded him physically of Red Raiders outside linebacker Terrance Bullitt.
