"I thought the atmosphere was crazy," said Wilson, rated a 4-star guard by Scout. "The fans were into it and it helped the players. They fed off the crowd. I liked it a lot."

Wilson said he got a chance to check out the Finch Center, the Tigers' practice facility, and observe workouts by the Tigers' "Life Changer," Frank Matrisciano.

"I liked him a lot," Wilson said. "They said he trains players for the pros, not for college."

The 6-foot-3 Wilson has offers from Memphis, Marquette, Tennessee, Missouri, and Virginia Tech.

Wilson said he had several positive conversations with the Memphis coaching staff while on his unofficial visit.

"(Memphis coach Josh Pastner) said he's looking for a point guard in the class and they want a guard who will attract other players who will wanna play with me," Wilson said.

Wilson said he'll take an unofficial to Marquette, which is about a 10 minute drive from his home, on Feb. 19.

"Coach (Buzz) Williams is a good coach," Wilson said. "My cousin (sophomore guard Jamil Wilson) goes there so I really like it a lot. I like the way they get up and down and how they play defense. It fits me well."
