Florida sees Wilson at cornerback

South Florida Express was dominating on Sunday in the IMG 7 on 7 tournament and that was in large part due to their defense.

One of those defenders was Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School cornerback Quincy Wilson who visited Florida a few weeks ago.

“My Florida visit was very nice when I up there,” Wilson said. “I went up there with Ermon (Lane), Chris (Lammons), Tyree (Brady) and Richard Yeargin. We just got to see practice. It was my first time seeing the Florida Gators practice and I got to see coach T-Rob and how he interacts with his cornerbacks.”

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Wilson was very impressed by what he saw out of defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson during the spring practice.

“Coach T-Rob, he is a cool guy and I really like him,” Wilson said. “He gets real hype in practice and I like that and he gets the best out of his guys. He is a coach that can help me out a lot as a player if I decide to go there.”

While on his visit, Wilson was able to also see the campus and the city of Gainesville, both impressed him a lot.

“We got to do a campus tour and everything was really nice,” Wilson said. “We got to see Gainesville and it’s a beautiful place. I liked it all a lot.”

Wilson has played both cornerback and safety and some schools are recruiting him at corner, while others at safety but Florida has him on their cornerbacks board.

“Florida tells me that I will fit in at cornerback,” Wilson said. “Me and Marcus Roberson are about the same size or roughly the same size. They tell me that I would fit in like what he does now. So if I decide to go there, that’s how I would fit into their defense.”

With the spring evaluation period starting and schools able to contact players now, Wilson says he has a few teams that are recruiting him the hardest.

“I don’t really have any leaders or anyone standing out for me,” Wilson said. “But Florida, LSU, Alabama, USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, South Carolina are recruiting me hard and I plan to check out those schools this summer.”
