Watch List DB has 'exciting' new offer

By Derek Tyson


ROCKLEDGE, Fla. -- Watch List defensive back Quincy Wilson (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./University School of Nova SE) has recently picked up new offers from Arizona, Ole Miss, UMass and NC State.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound athlete said he was excited to learn of his offer from NC State.

"The one I was probably most excited about was NC State," Wilson said. "I have heard they have good [defensive backs] coming out of there. My favorite [defensive back], David Amerson, for college football last year played for them."

Wilson also has offers from schools such as Ohio State, Florida, LSU, Auburn and Clemson, but said he has no favorites at this time.

"I don't think there is a lot, out of the big-time schools, so I am going through my offers that I like the most, and kind of building a top list for me," Wilson said. "I think probably by the summertime, I will have a good idea of the schools I want to keep on continuing on with. I'll make my decision probably after I take my official visits."

As for what he's looking for in a college, Wilson said he wants to have a good relationship with his future defensive backs coach.

"I am looking for a defensive backs coach that knows what he is doing, knows what he is talking about," he said. "I am looking for a defensive backs coach that I can build a relationship with, get along with. And if the school has academics I want to study and things like that."

Wilson said three schools, Miami (Fla.), Florida and Alabama, are recruiting him the hardest.

"They come down to visit, they message me on Facebook, they do the little things," he said. "They are showing me that they are really interested in me."
