Georgia OL commit Wilson plans to visit the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators coaching staff has sent out a lot of offers to 2021 prospects the last few days as they build their board for next year’s class.

On Friday, the Gators offered 2021 Georgia offensive line commit Jared Wilson (6-4, 325, Clemmons, NC. West Forsyth) who heard the news from one of the Gators assistant coaches.

“The offensive line coach [John Hevesy] offered me,” Wilson said of which coach from Florida offered him on Friday. “He told me that he was going through 2021 offensive linemen and my film popped out to him. After that he told me that I have an offer from the University of Florida.”

Wilson has 10 offers already but the offer from Florida made the lineman’s Friday after he heard the news.

“It means a lot to me,” he said on what the offer means to him. “I got really excited and it made my day when they offered me.”

Hevesy explained to Wilson on Friday where he would play if he was to choose Florida and what the Gators like about his game.

“If I was to go there, I would play guard,” Wilson said on how Hevesy sees him fitting into Florida’s offense. “He loves the way that I use my hands and he said he loved the way I play and my athleticism.”

Wilson hasn’t visited Florida yet so he’s still in the process of learning more about the program but he did watch a few games to get an idea on how the Gators play.

“I’m going to be honest, I don’t know much, I’m going to do some research on him with my mother,” he said on what he knows about Hevesy and the Gators. “I watched a couple of games on them and I love that they’re very aggressive.”

When Wilson committed to Georgia, he committed to former offensive line coach Sam Pittman but with him at Arkansas now, the Georgia commit says he’s talking to other schools to make sure he makes the right decision.

“I’m going to keep my options open and I’m back talking to coaches again,” Wilson said of his commitment. “I will be at Florida on March 7th for a visit.”
