Wilson has “great” visit with Florida Gators coaches

On Tuesday the Florida Gators sent two coaches to visit one of their commits for in-home visit.

Offensive line coach John Hevesy was in Miami to visit offensive line commit Wardrick Wilson (6-4, 305, Miami, FL. Carol City) for the first time during the contact period.

“Coach Hevesy and Coach [Brian] Johnson came by yesterday [Tuesday],” Wilson said. “It went great, we just talked mainly. We talked about the academics, football and the school.”

Hevesy talks with Wilson about a number of topics but wanted to make sure the commit stayed on top of his academics so he enroll early.

“He just told me to stay focus and keep my grades up,” he said on Hevesy’s message to him. “He said he’s ready to get me up there.”

Wilson also talked with Hevesy about where he would play at once he arrives in Gainesville next month.

“He said he’s going to keep me at tackle,” Wilson said on what Hevesy said football wise. “He was just saying the basics but we didn’t talk a lot about football.”

The Florida commit has built a solid relationship with Hevesy and feels like that will help him once he gets to Gainesville.

“I think I will fit great,” he said on how he thinks he fits in with the offensive line and Hevesy. “I think Coach Hevesy is a great dude and a great coach.”

Wilson visited Florida once this fall but he watched the other games at home and he was impressed by year one under Dan Mullen.

“They had a great season,” he said on his thoughts on the team this year. “They had a really fast pace offense, I see that. It was better than last year.”

Next up for Wilson he says will be his official visit to Florida before signs in December.

“The 7th of December,” Wilson said on he will visit Florida. “Florida is my last visit.”


INSIDERS TAKE: Wilson says he’s solid to Florida and plans to sign early and enroll in school early. Missouri also plans to visit Wilson in-home.
