Saint Augustine (Fla.) running back Rai-Shawn Wilson is sitting on one scholarship offer, from a Big Ten school, but has been getting text messages from a number of other programs.
"I've been getting text messages from Illinois, Central Florida and Alabama," Wilson said. "I'm also getting a lot of handwritten letters from Florida and Miami (Fla.)."
Mike Locksley is recruiting Wilson for the Fighting Illini.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder traveled to Gainesville, Fla., for Florida's Junior Day event on April 1.
"I tried to get my good friend James Wilson from Nease to go with me," he said. "But he couldn't go, so I ended up going by myself. I really enjoyed it. I got to watch them practice and I liked the intensity of the practice.
"They let their quarterbacks get hit."
The Gators signed Wilson's teammates, cornerback Jacques Rickerson and fellow running back Brandon James out of Saint Augustine High last season.
This weekend, he plans to make the trip down I-95 to Coral Gables, Fla., to check out Miami. He will return to Gainesville for the Gators' spring game the following week.
Wilson previously has visited Central Florida and likely will attend a camp at Oklahoma this summer. His childhood favorite is Florida State. He hasn't heard much from the Seminoles, but expects to.
Wilson will attend the Gainesville NIKE Camp on May 20 at the University of Florida.
