Ramik Wilson and Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson are Florida Class 3A state champions defeating Miami (Fla.) Norland 44-34 on Friday afternoon.

Wilson also forced a fumble inside the Norland 5-yard line during the third quarter which Jefferson would cash in for a touchdown on the very next play effectively putting the game' result beyond doubt.
Afterwards, Wilson's attention was focused on the thrill of victory rather than the recruiting process which is surely to pick up again as soon as next week.
"I don't know right now," said the overwhelmed state champion. "I am just so happy that I can't really talk about it right now. Maybe at a little later or another time."
A performance such as the one Wilson turned in on one of the biggest stages had the prized 2011 recruit wondering if more schools may take notice.
"It might, it might," Wilson said with a smile.
Wilson will take the next couple of days to rest and recover from a long and successful season before travelling around the country on official visits.
"I will get all of that figured out in January," he said.
Wilson is tentatively expected to visit Georgia on January 7th, Texas Tech on January 14th, Rutgers on January 21st, and Purdue on January 28th.
