Chocolate Wilson was already feeling pretty good about things heading into last week.
It's easy to understand why. The 5-10, 165-pound Myrtle Beach (S.C.) corner had offers from Missouri, Purdue and Ole Miss with heavy interest from elsewhere. Then he picked up another offer, this time from a school much closer to home.
"I got the offer from NC State on Friday," Wilson said. "Their defensive backs coach and their running backs coach came to my school and offered me there. This was probably my second time talking to them.
"I had been talking to the running backs coach on Thursday and they said they were coming up then. I just didn't know they were going to offer."
When asked whether he is excited about the Wolfpack's offer Wilson responded enthusiastically with, "Oh yes sir, definitely."
He's eager to take a close look at the Pack but for now he maintains that everyone recruiting him has an equal shot.
"Right now I'd say all my options are wide open," he said.
Last fall at Myrtle Beach Wilson registered 39 tackles and six interceptions. He returned three of those picks and a kickoff for scores, so he definitely qualifies as a game breaker, even though it's unlikely that he'll play offense.
Right now most schools are recruiting him as a cornerback. While he's still filling out his frame, Wilson is known as a very physical corner and has excellent coverage skills. In fact, many believe he could be one of the top cover corners in the South.
So far Wilson has visited Florida for their Friday Night Lights but doesn't have any other plans lined up.
One thing will trump everything else when he's making his decision.
"The biggest thing is going to be the relationship I have with the coaches," he said.
