OLB/DE Christian Wilson Profile
6-3, 225 pound OLB/DE prospect Christian Wilson took an unofficial visit to Clemson over the weekend.
"I came down to Clemson with my mom, dad and my brother," he said. "It went well. They showed me around the new facilities. We got to see the stadium. They also showed us all of the academic stuff. We got to see the campus and the downtown area."
Several of Clemson's younger players showed Wilson what the Tigers have to offer.
"I got to hang out with some of the players. I was with Willy Korn, Scotty Cooper, Stanley Hunter, Landon Walker and a few others. We had a nice time," he said.
The family enjoyed the visit although it was a very long trip.
"They all really liked it," Wilson said. "My mom and dad both said it was nice. The distance is a little far, but it is a nice place."
The offer list continues to grow, but many of the nation's top programs have already offered.
"I have about 38 or 39 offers right now," said Wilson.
When asked about his current favorites, Wilson responded, "I don't really have any yet. I kind of like a lot of schools right now. I haven't broken it down yet."
What is the talented athlete looking for in a college?
"I am looking for early playing time. I don't want to go where they have three or four great players that are all pro bound at my position. I don't mind taking a redshirt and then working my way up the ladder," replied Wilson.
Wilson could play several positions for the Tiger.
"They said I could play outside linebacker of defensive end. On offense they said I could play running back or the H-back," said Wilson. "Coach Powell is my recruiter for Clemson," stated Wilson.
How important will distance be in his decision?
"It is not really important. I would like my parents to be able to come see me play, but they tell me to go where I want to be. I will go where I like the coaching staff and where I feel it is the right school for me," replied Wilson.
The decision timing is not yet clear for Wilson.
"I might try to make one before the season if I can. If not it will be soon after the season. I might do some official visits. I will try to do them early so things don't get crazy," replied the talented prospect.
