The need for cornerbacks is huge for the Florida coaching staff in the Class of 2014, as the staff would like to sign four prospects at the position.
One of those targets is Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School cornerback Quincy Wilson, who is using this spring to get better on the field despite an injury.
“My spring is going pretty good,” Wilson said. “I’m dealing with a little groin injury but I’m getting better. Right now, I’m just going up against the receiver’s in coverage and trying to get stronger on the field.”
Like most top prospects, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Wilson has seen the Florida Gators stop by during his spring practice.
“Coach T-Rob was by here this week,” Wilson said. “He is my recruiting coach and a good guy. He tells me that I would fit in right with the defense and that he likes big long guys to play cornerback that can run on the outside on an island by their selves. He said I remind him of Marcus Roberson a lot because we are about the same style, so I could fit in where he is at now.”
Wilson says that right now he doesn’t have a leader at all but hopes to narrow down his list this summer.
This summer will be busy for the University school star, as he plans to visit schools all across the country.
“I want to take a lot of visits this summer,” Wilson said. “ I plan to visit UCLA, USC, Alabama, Notre Dame, South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida. I have to talk to my dad about coming up for Friday Night Lights at Florida in July.”
