Mike's Take: FSU WR commit

Jesus Wilson recently committed to Florida State so lets take a closer look at him as a prospect.

What to Like: Jesus Wilson is one of the top wide receiver prospects in South Florida. At 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds, the Miami Columbus standout put his name on the recruiting map with a strong junior season. He was then impressive everywhere he went this offseason. It started with a strong performance at the IMG 7on7 tournament back in March. He was then the wide receivers MVP at the Miami Nike Camp in April. He then earned a committable offer with his performance at Florida State's camp this past week. Wilson has enough size that he's not going to be considered a slot receiver. He has enough speed to separate from most defenders. He has the hands and ball skills to catch just about anything thrown in his direction. And he's very competitive, and really did everything he could to earn the offer from the Noles.

What may concern you: At just 160 pounds, Wilson needs to gain weight and add strength. Can he catch a lot of balls in traffic? Will he make a lot of plays over the middle? Can he break tackles? Can he beat the jam against bigger and more physical corners? All those things remain to be seen and something that will really help Wilson take his game to another level. And while he can run pretty well, he doesn't have blazing speed -- especially for a 160-pound receiver.

Bottom Line: Wilson wanted to be a Florida State Seminole from the very beginning. The hometown Hurricanes never recruited him but he had offers from schools like West Virginia and Mississippi State and became a solid three-star prospect. He earned the FSU offer at their camp recently so the FSU coaches had a chance to evaluate him, not just as a player but also a competitor and how well he can be coached up and things like that. They liked what they saw enough to accept his commitment this early in the game.
