"Florida State running back coach Billy Sexton pulled me aside at the camp and told me that I can play at the next level," Wilson, who earned a spot on the all-county team by rushing for over 1,300 yards as a junior said.
In addition to Florida State, several other programs have offered, including Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Stanford.
"When I attended the Miami football camp, Coach Soldinger told me I had great speed," he said. "He verbally offered me on the spot."
Right now most schools are recruiting the Daytona Beach Mainland running back as an athlete. He could end up as a defensive back, running back or receiver in college.
Where do the Noles stand with him?
"Florida State is my favorite," he said. "I grew up watching my cousin (Reinard Wilson) playing. He has told me a lot of good things about Florida State. However, he told me to take some visits and make up my own mind. I'll probably take most of my visits after the season."
Some of the others teams that make up his short list are Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and South Florida.
What will he be looking for in a school?
"I'm looking for someplace that I can learn," he said. "I'm looking to redshirt my first year."
Wilson earned a spot on the all-county team as a junior by rushing for over 1,300 yards.
The secret to his success is his hard work and dedication.
"I run the ball real hard," he said. "I also have pretty good vision. I break a lot of tackles due to my lower body strength. I can squat up to 500 pounds."
