Georgia TE plays numbers game

Evan Wilson, tight end from Woodstock High School in Woodstock, Ga., has been in close contact with two BCS conference schools. The big target from North Metro Atlanta is just waiting to see where he lands in the "numbers game" for these programs.


"In the last few weeks I've been in close contact with Vanderbilt and Purdue," said Evan Wilson. "It's basically a waiting situation. Both schools are offering a certain number of tight ends, and I'm one of the next in line."

"Purdue has three offers out for tight ends this year. One (De'Ron Flood) has already committed. It's just a waiting game. If one of the tight ends they're recruiting doesn't commit, the Purdue coaches said they'd probably offer me a scholarship."

"I think Vanderbilt is close to offering. It's similar to the Purdue situation. One tight end (Davis Dudchock) has already committed.. Coach (Ted) Cain told me their gonna take another tight end. It's between me and three other tight ends. I think I have a really good shot at getting that offer."

Wilson has a high regard for both programs. He gives Vanderbilt a slight edge over Purdue.

"If Vanderbilt offered they'd be on top, very much so," he commented. "They started recruiting me early. I've been in close contact with Coach Cain for a long time. I really like the staff. I really like Nashville."

"I like Purdue, too. Purdue would be at a high interest if they offered. If Purdue offers before Vanderbilt they'll be on top. When I went up there (Purdue) for a camp in July I really fell in love with the campus and the staff. They gave me a full tour. I was just very impressed."

If Vanderbilt offers will Wilson commit on the spot?

"I wouldn't commit immediately, but it might not be a long time before I commit," he said. "If they offer me a scholarship they would definitely be a strong consideration. If they offered there's a good chance that my next school would be Vanderbilt."
