Florida has had one of the best days of recruiting during the Will Muschamp era, as the Gators picked up their second commitment of the day in Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School cornerback Quincy Wilson.
The 6-foot-1, 196-pound Wilson joins good friends Ermon Lane and Chris Lammons who both joined the 2014 Florida recruiting class on Monday as well.
“It feels great,” Wilson said.”The process can be stressful sometimes. There’s days I don’t feel like answering my phone and sometime want to be myself without all the pressure and all that and I am happy to make my decision before the season to focus on the season.”
“With Louchiez [Purifoy] and Marcus that are going to probably leave,” Wilson said. “I felt like I could go in there and make an impact early being that it would only be Vernon Hargreaves and the three other commits, J.C Jackson, Chris Lammons, and Duke Dawson. So I felt like that was going to be a good opportunity for me and I developed a good relationship with T-Rob and me and him talk three or four times a week and I just felt comfortable with making the decision to go to Florida.”
Wilson committing to Florida gives the Gators a terrific addition to an already great class. South Florida has been a hotbed for Florida this year, as Wilson joins Gator commits Dalvin Cook, Khairi Clark, Chris Lammons and Ermon Lane from the area.
South Carolina, Ohio State and Notre Dame were the runners up for Wilson’s talents. Wilson has been considered a Florida lean for some time now.
Wilson joins an already impressive defensive back field, with JC Jackson, Duke Dawson and Chris Lammons already committed to play defensive back for Florida in the Class of 2014. Wilson now becomes the 14th member of the Class of 2014 for Florida.
Wilson comes from an athletic family, as his father Chad Wilson played cornerback for the Miami Hurricanes from 1992-1994.
