Trio has Wilsons attention

While many prospects have used the last few weeks to see colleges, Miami (Fla.) Columbus four-star athlete Jesus Wilson has remained home. He isn't likely to hit the road again until after spring practice wraps up in May.
"I haven't visited anywhere lately," Wilson said. "I don't think I will be taking any visits until the summer."
The Rivals250 prospect, who claims offers from Florida International, Florida State, Marshall, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia, has a trio of schools at the top of his list. Two have offered, and another is a school that the 5-foot-9, 165-pound athlete would love to hear more from.
"Florida State is still my number one, but I want LSU," Wilson said. "I think I am going to camp at Florida State, Oklahoma State, and LSU. Those are my plans right now. Those are my top three schools right now."
With regards to the Seminoles, Wilson remains in regular contact with them. He visited Tallahassee for a junior day earlier in the year.
"I am still talking to them a lot," Wilson said. "I talk to Coach (James) Coley a lot. He just tells me to keep focused on my grades and to keep working hard."
Florida State wants him as a slot receiver, as does Oklahoma State. If LSU enters the picture, Wilson has hopes that they are looking at him for a different position.
"I like the defense at LSU," Wilson said. "If I get offered by LSU, I want to go there as a defensive back."
Ultimately, Wilson is willing to line up on either side of the ball. He says it depends on the particular team that he ultimately opts for.
"I am open to playing on either side of the ball," Wilson said. "It comes down to where I can be most successful at for that team."
Wilson, who also reports interest from Miami and Oregon, isn't working with a specific timeline for making a decision.
As a junior, Wilson accounted for 11 touchdowns.
