Top DB has criteria for who makes the cut

Top 10 safety Quincy Wilson of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School hasn't narrowed his list yet, but there are five schools he says are recruiting him the hardest. Plus, he affirms that one particular school will make the cut.

Cornerback/safety Quincy Wilson of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School has over 30 offers, but he has yet to eliminate one school.

"I don't have any favorites, but I will narrow my list in the future," Wilson said. "The coaching staff, who I think is recruiting me the hardest, early playing time, and academics will play into my decision. I won't decide until after my senior year season."

So, who is recruiting the coveted 6-foot-2, 195-pound defensive back the hardest?

"Right now, it's LSU, Notre Dame, Florida, South Carolina, and Ohio State," Wilson said. "Alabama and USC haven't offered me yet, but they might be close. I hear from them quite a bit."

Wilson keeps in contact with the Irish and likes what the staff is telling him.

"I'm actually talking to Coach [Tony] Alford right now," Wilson said. "We're talking on Facebook. We just keep in touch and he asks me how my day went. He tells me I'm a good player that's fast and can cover. He says it's rare to find a corner that's my height. I know Notre Dame is a good academic school with great tradition. They had great season last year."

Wilson's dad, Chad Wilson, played for the University of Miami. However, the Hurricanes aren't in this race.

"Miami is not recruiting me," Wilson said.

Wilson has visited Florida, Ohio State, and Auburn so far, but nothing is set in stone for the near future.

"I'm not sure where I'm going this spring," he said. "I'm probably visiting Ohio State, LSU, and Tennessee this summer. I'm not sure who else yet. I'm trying to figure out when I'm going to visit Notre Dame."

When the time does come to formulate a working list, does Notre Dame have a good shot of being included?

"Yeah, they'll make it," Wilson said.
