Quincy Wilson announces top five
By Michael DiRocco
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Class of 2014 safety Quincy Wilson won’t be announcing his decision until the first week of August, but he has narrowed his list of schools to Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina and USC.
The 6-foot-1, 197-pound standout from Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School of Nova South -- whom ESPN ranks as the No. 12 safety in the country -- made that announcement after participating in Florida’s Friday Night Lights one-day camp. Wilson said he had a good time at Florida Field and spent a lot of time with UF commits Will Grier (Davidson, N.C./Davidson Day), J.C. Jackson (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee), Dalvin Cook (Miami Central), and Duke Dawson (Cross City, Fla./Dixie County) as well as fellow uncommitted recruit Adoree' Jackson (Gardena, Calif./Junipero Serra), the nation’s No. 5 overall player and No. 2 cornerback.
"Me and Duke have a little relationship," Wilson said. "I just really met J.C. today. Me and Will Grier got close at The Opening. I met [Jackson] at The Opening, too. Me and him have a little relationship. We text every now and then."
The relationship Florida fans care about the most, however, is the one Wilson has with Ermon Lane (Homestead, Fla./Homestead Senior), the top-ranked receiver in the country and a critical recruit for the Gators. Wilson said he and the 6-2, 196-pound Lane have agreed to sign with the same school, and people will find out which one that is in early August.
"We’ve been friends for three years," Wilson said of Lane. "I think it’d be great [to sign with the same school] because that’s the best going against the best in practice every day so we’ll get better every day."
