The 6-3, 180 pound star has offers from Clemson, Georgia Tech, Duke, and Middle Tennessee but expect that list to increase as Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi, NC State and Central Florida are all showing interest. "Clemson would be my leader. They have been recruiting me the hardest and showing the most interest."

The offensive system that a team uses is very important to the Hoover High School star. "The system is real important. My high school throws the ball 75% of the time. I'm looking for a team that throws a lot. I like Clemson's offense a lot."

Coach Swinney has been recruiting Wilson for the Tigers, and getting him on campus could help the Tigers increase the lead for this prize recruit. "I am trying to get to Clemson before the summer if over. My coach is trying to setup the visit. My parents will be going with me."

The talented quarterback has already camped at Mississippi, Alabama and Auburn this summer. "I liked Alabama a lot. I got to talk with the coaches a lot. I liked coach Shula. Auburn was a pretty good camp. They're not showing as much interest as Alabama."

What are the strengths for this gunslinger? "My arm strength. I'm in a passing offense right now. Our offense is what Texas Tech runs. I've got a feel for the offense some college programs use."
