2014 safety Quincy Wilson has seen some quality offers roll through the door since March 8th and the month of May started out the same way. The three-star recruit received yet another offer from the Michigan Wolverines on May 1st.
Quincy Wilson has received offers from the Arizona Wildcats, Auburn Tigers, Cincinnati Bearcats, Clemson Tigers, Duke Blue Devils, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Iowa State Cyclones, Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, Louisville Cardinals, LSU Tigers, Marshall Thundering Herd, Maryland Terrpains, Michigan Wolverines, Massachusetts Minutemen, Michigan State Spartans, Mississippi State Bulldogs, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Nebraska Cornhuskers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Ohio State Buckeyes, Ole Miss Rebels, Purdue Boilermakers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, South Carolina Gamecocks, South Florida Bulls, Stanford Cardinal, Syracuse Orange, Tennessee Volunteers, Texas A&M Aggies, Central Florida Knights, UCLA Bruins, USC Trojans, Vanderbilt Commodores, Virginia Tech Hokies, Wake Forest Demon Deacons, West Virginia Mountaineers, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, and Wisconsin Badgers.
The main reasons why so many teams are bidding for Wilson’s commitment are his hard hitting, ball pursuit, and closing speed.
By looking at Wilson’s game film, the first thing one would notice is how hard he hits, but a close second would be his closing speed. In one play, the 6’2″ safety was 10-yards away from the running back while a screen play was being thrown. By the time the ball reached the running back, Wilson was there to make the tackle.
According to 247Sports, Wilson runs a 4.60 40-yard dash.
Wilson has yet to narrow down his offers, but told 247Sports in February that some major factors when narrowing it down will be his relationship with the coaches and how hard teams recruit him. As of February, South Carolina, Florida, Ohio State, and LSU are the schools that are recruiting him the hardest.
The team that jumps out to me from those four teams is OSU. It is no surprise the Urban Meyers has this recruit on his radar and is recruiting him hard. So far, the Buckeyes have the tenth best recruiting class in the country and seven commitments (five four-star recruits).
The three-star recruit is currently ranked 93rd in the state of Florida and 59th among safeties in the Class of 2014 by 247Sports.
