Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland cornerback Deonte Wilson committed to Florida International two weeks ago after an official visit to the Miami-based school. Now, two weeks later, rumors are circulating that he has switched his commitment after an official visit to Central Florida.
"I haven't done anything yet," Wilson said Sunday evening. "I don't know what I am going to do yet. I haven't decided yet."
At this stage, Wilson says it is simply between the Knights and Panthers for his services.
