Texas A&M commit offered by the Florida Gators

Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen and his coaching staff have spent the dead period shuffling their recruiting board and adding new names that didn’t sign in December.

This process has also included offering new prospects and on Saturday they offered Texas A&M defensive end commit Tyree Wilson (6-5, 230, New London, TX. West Rusk) who spoke to the head coach himself.

“Coach Mullen offered me,” Wilson said. “He said that I was the pass rusher he was looking for in this class and that he was going to get out here to see me. He said that he was going to be in touch with me.”

Wilson doesn’t know a whole lot about the Gators but admitted he liked the offer and plans to look at Florida and others.

“It’s a good offer and I’m going to have to look at it,” he said of the offer. “I’m going to look around and look at my options at these schools.”

Wilson also had the chance to talk to new defensive line coach Sal Sunseri, who gave him a message as well.

“I talked to the defensive line coach,” Wilson said on what other schools he has talked to. “He was said that I was a good pass rusher and that he had just gotten to Florida. He said that this was the first time he watched my film and he liked me.”

Next up for Wilson is several official visits but only one official visit is set up as of right now.

“I’m going to start lining up visits soon,” he said on official visits. “I’m visiting Arkansas on the 19th and than I have to schedule the rest of them.”

Wilson also admits that while he’s committed to Texas A&M, he hasn’t shut the door on other schools.

“I’m just exploring options that’s why I didn’t sign early,” Wilson said on status with Texas A&M.

INSIDERS TAKE: Wilson doesn’t know much about Florida but admitted that he wants to learn more about the Gators. A lot of people believe Arkansas is the biggest threat to flip Wilson from Texas A&M heading into his visit to Fayettville.
