Wilson will visit LSU in June

Tyler Wilson's main focus is on baseball right now, with the state playoffs beginning Friday. But, with all the college coaches continuing to visit his high school, recruiting is never far from his mind.

"So far coaches from Mississippi State, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas and Arizona," said Tyler Wilson. "They've just been coming by to say hello and see what kinds of facilities I've been around in high school. I talked with coach Mac (D.J. McCarthy) from LSU and he said coach (Gary) Crowten (offensive coordinator) was supposed to visit me, but I didn't get a chance to see him."


The 6-3, 185-pound signal caller passed for 4,222 yards and 50 touchdowns last season. He had a 68 percent completion percentage en route to all-conference and all-state honors, and was also voted the Southwest Times player of the year.


The Greenwood (Ark.) product claims offers from Alabama, LSU, Arizona, Kansas, Minnesota and Tulsa with three of those schools getting a stronger look than the others.


"I'm still planning on committing by the end of the summer, but it's hard to have a favorite or top couple of teams because I haven't seen all the campuses or even met all the coaches at the schools," said Wilson. "I still plan to visit LSU June 11th and I'm starting to plan to go to Alabama and perhaps an Arizona camp."


With Alabama and LSU both in the SEC, how does Arizona factor in?


"I think that LSU and Alabama are similar in that they are in the SEC," said Wilson. "Their offenses are different, but alike. Arizona is an offense that is a lot like the offense I've been running my whole high school career. That's something that is a factor and it definitely puts Arizona into the equation."
