Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School defensive back Quincy Wilson returned home this weekend after making trips to Notre Dame and Ohio State.
Wilson had nothing but praise from his latter visit to Columbus.
"It was great. The weather was nice. It doesn't get too hot up there. I got to see the entire campus and talk to the coaches. I enjoyed my time," stated an upbeat Wilson.

Ohio State defensive backs coach Kerry Combs talked to Wilson about how the Buckeyes use their corners in their scheme and the Rivals250 defender liked what he heard.
"They like to use big corners like me. When I was there most of the DB's looked like me, so that was a good thing," chimed Wilson.
That is a topic of discussion for Wilson. Some recruiting pundits feel he is a safety, but he feels comfortable at his natural position of being on an island.
His father played cornerback at Miami and coaches at his school while helping out for the local 7-on-7 teams. He has a great pedigree and college coaches certainly notice his stellar size and football acumen.
Despite his ties to his alma mater, Mr. Wilson was quick to point out, "This is his choice. If he feels at home with Notre Dame or Ohio State than I'm fine with it."
He is in no hurry to name a leader, but he will pick a school where he feels "is the best place for me."
Right now Ohio State has done a great job building a strong bond with Wilson. He noted, "I talk to Coach [Urban] Meyer on the phone at least once a week. We can talk about anything too."
Meyer has an outstanding record as a strong closer. His ties to the state from his days in Gainesville will help with Wilson. He understands the type of player that comes out of this region.
When asked if Ohio State will get an official visit this fall?
"My plan is get up there for a game, but I haven't decided where I will go on my visits yet," remarked Wilson.
The four-star prospect will be in Bradenton this weekend for the IMG/NFA 7-on-7 as his South Florida Express squad will look to take home the national championship.
