Wilson ready to get to work

Gators incoming freshman cornerback Quincy Wilson heads to campus Monday. While he can't believe the time has come, he's eager to get to Gainesville and get started with the Gators.

Quincy Wilson will say goodbye to his green and gold number 26 jersey and dawn number 12 in the Orange and Blue. The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School standout heads to Gainesville Monday and itching to get started with his new team.

"I'm really looking forward to everything. I don't really know what to expect, I'm just ready to get up there and see how it's going to be and adjust to it," he said.

"I'm really anxious to get up there and get to work."

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound defensive back has been keeping himself in shape in preparation for his future Gators workouts.

"Every day I work out. I go in the weight room and I run on the field to make sure I'm still in shape. I'm maintaining my strength. I'll just get stronger up there and keep getting faster," he said.

Still, he knows it's going to be an adjustment. At the IMG 7v7 last weekend, Wilson caught up with some of his new teammates, Florida defensive backs Duke Dawson and Marcell Harris.

"They just said to make sure I come in ready to run, because they run a lot. They said the classes aren't that hard if you apply yourself," he said.

He'll also be living with another South Florida standout.

"I think I'm rooming with (Treon Harris). We're cool. That would be cool to room with a quarterback," Wilson said.

Wilson committed to the Gators at the end of last summer and stuck with his pledge despite a tough season for Florida. He expects this fall to be better.

"I think we're going to be alright as long as everybody stays healthy," he said.

Keep an eye out for number 12 in the Orange and Blue.
