Quincy Wilson Lands First Three

One of the top 2014 defensive backs in the state of Florida is Fort Lauderdale University School's Quincy Wilson. After starring in 7on7 action this winter, several colleges have stopped to see him this spring. He picked up his first three offers this week.

It's not soon to begin targeting the top 2014 defensive back prospects in the state of Florida, and Fort Lauderdale University school's Quincy Wilson is in the discussion.

Wilson, 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, starred this past winter in 7-on-7 action for the famed South Florida Express. He has continued that fine play in spring football, which has led to his first three offers.

"Quincy was offered by LSU, Auburn and Illinois this week," Chad Wilson, the player's father and former Miami Hurricane, stated. "This is a blessing to have these schools offering Quincy, and we are very happy about it."

"LSU and Auburn were both at practice this week and they liked what they saw," he added. "We had our Green and Gold game yesterday, and both schools let us know they were offering Quincy. He played really well, with an interception and a few big hits, so they went ahead and offered. Illinois let our coach know they were offering, but I'm not sure which coach issued it."

With his father being a former Miami player, it is widely assumed the Hurricanes are the leader for Quincy Wilson.

"I want my son to go through the process," the elder Wilson stated. "Obviously, we love Miami, but they haven't offered Quincy. I want him to get out and see a lot of schools, so he can make the best decision about where to go to college."

Wilson, who could project as either a safety or cornerback, is also hearing from schools such as Miami, Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Florida State, and others.
