Versatility the key for Wilson

The Iowa State coaching staff would likely have a lot of options as to where to play Tampa Jefferson High School's Ramik Wilson if they were to land the standout from Florida.

"I can play middle linebacker, outside linebacker, or defensive end," said Wilson. "I think they want to put twenty pounds on me and have me play middle linebacker. They said they felt that I could clog the holes and be a dominant linebacker."

The 6-foot-4, 228-pound linebacker runs a 4.5 forty and last year he had 12 sacks and made 105 tackles.

He currently has offers from Iowa State, UCF, Texas Tech, and East Carolina. He is also being heavily recruited by Purdue, Illinois, Rutgers, Kansas, Stanford, and Clemson.

"Everyone's even right now," said Wilson. "They're all telling me the right things so obviously the visits will be important because I want to find a place where I feel like I'm at home. I'm looking for a place where I'm cool with the coaches that has nice facilities and a place where I know that I'll be getting some solid playing time."

Wilson told Cyclone Sports Report that Iowa State clearly likes his versatility.

"I think they want me at middle linebacker but they know I can rush the passer so I think they would also consider me at defensive end also because I'm a big guy," he said. "They told me that they like that I'm versatile and that I can make a lot of big plays."

Ramik has not made any visits yet but that will all be changing in the near future.

"I'm going to junior day at UCF next weekend and I'll also be going to a camp at Texas Tech," he said. "I'm trying to set up something at Purdue and Iowa State either this spring or in the summer."
