Wilson Cuts List; Will Sign Early

Jamil Wilson cut his list of schools down to four, and is set to take two more official visits before making his college decision.

Originally, Jamil Wilson planned to wait until the spring signing period to make his college decision, but those plans have changed.

A standout at Racine (Wisc.) Horlick, Wilson recently narrowed his list of schools to Michigan State, Texas, Oregon and Marquette.

"It's getting down to crunch time and I don't want to go in with seven schools," Wilson, who is ranked No. 5 at the small forward spot, said.

Of the four schools on his list, he's taken an official visit to Michigan State and has officials set up to Texas and Oregon. The trip to East Lansing (Mich.) was this past weekend.

"I had a great time," Wilson said. "Before I went home I talked to Coach [Tom] Izzo for a half an hour. I went to my first college football game. It was pretty cool. I got to play open gym with the guys and hang out with them."

Wilson, who couldn't remember the exact dates for his next two trips, said after he finishes taking his official visits, he plans to come up with a decision and sign in the early signing period.

The 35th ranked prospect in the 2009 class said that his trip to Michigan State has them sitting pretty high on his list, but he made it clear that the other two schools were certainly still in the mix.

"I would say Michigan State, but Coach Izzo made a good point," Wilson said when asked if he had a favorite. "He said you'll always favor a school that you just left. But not really, I'm just going to wait and see how things go."

Wilson, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound forward, is a four-star prospect on Scout.com
