Wilson's stock is rising quickly this season as he shows his arm strength and leadership abilities. Many will think his stats from Friday night's impressive performance were a misprint. The talented gunslinger completed 19 of 25 passes for 430 yards and 7 touchdowns. Wilson has over 1530 yards and 16 touchdowns on the season while leading Hoover High School to a 5-0 start.

The 6-1, 180 pound superstar quarterback from Hoover, Alabama has no leader right now, but he's getting plenty of attention from the college recruiters.

"Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Clemson are my favorites. I really don't have a leader right now. They are all about the same. Nobody is in the lead at all."

How closely is the senior quarterback following the seasons of his favorites?

"I'm not really following them that closely. I really don't watch that much television. I'm concentrating on leading my team to the state championship."
The talented prospect was in attendance when Alabama lost the big lead and eventually the game to Arkansas this weekend. Wilson plans to attend the Tennessee verse Georgia and Florida State verse Clemson games later this season.
