Florida Leads for Lyndell "Mack" Wilson

Lyndell "Mack" Wilson still names Florida as his leader on Monday morning. Scout's No. 2 inside linebacker discusses the Gators and where he stands less than ten days from signing day.

Lyndell "Mack" Wilson is almost at the finish line. Scout's No. 2 inside linebacker took his fourth official visit this past weekend, when he visited Alabama

"It was a great weekend overall," said the four-star recruit. "I got a chance to go over a few things with the coaches.. chance to better  and improve our relationship. I enjoyed the visit overall and when [Alabama Head] Coach [Nick] Saban dabbed it was just something I asked him and he did it for me." 

Although the Crimson Tide  impressed, Wilson's top three remains in the same order. 

"It still Florida, 'Bama, Georgia," said Wilson. "Just enjoying everything and waiting until signing day." 

The Gators have the last word when it comes to the 6-foot-2, 230 pounder's recruitment. Wilson is set to visit Gainesville next weekend for his official visit. 

"It will be something big for my family so they can come see how Florida is and see how it goes." 

Wilson will be accompanied by his mother next weekend, and he will need her blessing before he makes any decision. 

"She is very important," he said.  "She is the person I talk to the most about recruiting. She has just helped me and she's always been there when I needed her, so thats who I depend on."

The Montgomery, Alabama native is expected to make an announcement on signing day.  

"Last nine days, after I come back from Florida I want to sit down with my family and see what they think about everything."
