Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal 4-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson is the top rated defensive tackle in the country. He has offers from schools across the country. On Saturday he took a visit to Florida State.
"They showed me everything I needed," Wilson said. "They showed me a great time."
Wilson has built a great relationship with Florida State's recruiting coordinator Tim Brewster.
"Coach Brewster is just a real dude," Wilson said. "He one dude that if you call him at 4 o'clock in the morning he will probably pick up. He's just there for you."
He was able to start building a relationship with Florida State defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins.
"Coach Odell basically told me, he said,' More than anything I want to coach you. I want to make you a man,'" Wilson said. "That stood out more than anything any coach has ever told me. Being with him and just trying to develop a relationship with him. That just spoke volumes on the back of what he said. Before he even got to the football aspect of it, he jsut talked about what I need to do off the field to help me translate it to on the field."
There were a number of things that stood out to Wilson during his visit.
"The coaching staff," Wilson said. "The facilities. I would say my future here."
That coaching staff made sure that Wilson knew he was a wanted man at Florida State.
"They said that right now I'm probably one of the top guys on their recruiting list," Wilson said. "I felt like that if I do decide to come to Florida State I'm going to bring a lot of big time guys."
Florida State is one of the schools that are recruiting Wilson the hardest.
"I talk to Florida State a lot," Wilson said. "I talk to LSU, Alabama, USC, A&M, UCLA, and OU."
Wilson plans to visit Florida State again this summer, but will definitely be taking an official visit to Tallahassee. He doesn't know any of his other officials yet.
"Right now, no," Wilson said. "This one just punched their ticket."
The 6-foot-4 2/4, 325-pound Wilson is the No. 1 rated defensive tackle and No. 21 player overall in the 2017 Scout 300. He will visit Alabama on Sunday, and visit LSU during the week.null
