Rivals250 DB talks Bucks, Gators
Fort Lauderdale (Fla) University School and Rivals250 cornerback Quincy Wilson made his fair share of plays over the weekend at the NLA 7-on-7 Southeast Tournament, showing why he's ranked as the No. 165 overall player in the country.
Wilson, who is listed at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, has offers from big-time programs all over the country, but said a few programs are making the strongest pushes.
"Schools I'm really talking to right now are Ohio State, Notre Dame, LSU and Florida," Wilson said "Those are the main ones right now that I'm staying in contact with."
Wilson spoke highly of Ohio State and the relationship he's been able to develop with the Buckeyes coaching staff.
"I think Ohio State is a great school," he said. "I talk to Urban Meyer about once a week and I think he's a cool guy and a great person."
Wilson added that he thinks he would be a nice fit in the Buckeyes defensive scheme.
"I think I would fit really well there," he said. "Because Coach [Kerry] Coombs the defensive backs coach likes big corners and I'm a big corner."
The Buckeyes staff isn't the only one building relationships with Wilson, as Florida defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson and Wilson are also becoming close.
"I think coach T-Rob is a great guy," Wilson said. "I think he really knows what he's doing with his defensive backs and stuff like that."
Despite some of the schools he's looking at taking in defensive back heavy recruiting classes in 2013, Wilson said he's not going to shy away from a program because of a crowded depth chart.
"There's going to be competition anywhere you go," Wilson said. "You just have to go out there and do work and fight for a spot."
