5-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson updates recruitment, LSU interest

2017 five-star Bellaire (Tex.) Episcopal defensive tackle Marvin Wilson updated Tiger Blitz on where his LSU interest stands and where his recruitment stands.

2017 Bellaire (Tex.) Episcopal defensive tackle Marvin Wilson's recruitment will go all the way until National Signing Day as he is expected to announce his commitment while picking from a host of schools. Wilson visited Oklahoma this past weekend and told Greg Powers it was an "8" in large part due to the current Sooners commits.

"The recruiting class off the bat," Wilson said about what sticks out in Norman. "Justin Broiles and all of them, those are my guys. I want to be a part of people who want to win and do great things

LSU meanwhile is still in the mix for the No. 10 overall prospect in the country and No. 1 defensive tackle. Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron is a big reason why.

"Coach Orgeron is what really stands out about them. I have a really good relationship with him. He's another one of those great recruiters. He gets on that level that no one else can get on."

Wilson admitted before the season that he wants to see more from LSU in terms of winning and that really goes for a lot of the schools he's considering including Texas.

"I want to see them turn it around and go the right way. I want to see them keep winning games," Wilson told Scout.

Following LSU's loss to Wisconsin, Les Miles is certainly on the hot seat to win now more than ever. Wilson said it could be a deal breaker if Miles wasn't at LSU.

"It's a huge factor. I don't see myself playing for anybody else at LSU other that Coach Miles. I'm not even joking. That's going to be a big factor." 

A lot of people are now eyeing in-state Texas as a school to beat along with Oklahoma, but in terms of in-state versus out of state, Wilson doesn't care.

"It doesn't matter at all." 

Wilson's next official visit is scheduled for Florida State when the Seminoles face Clemson on October 29. Still in the mix for Wilson are schools such as Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Alabama and possibly Ole Miss.
