Wilson recaps Notre Dame visit

Cornerback Quincy Wilson of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School recaps his visit to Notre Dame, including and explained how the Irish improved their chances with the cornerback and what he most enjoyed about his three-day stay in South Bend.

Cornerback Quincy Wilson of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School started off his whirlwind summer tour of visits in South Bend. He was joined by his father and teammate Richard Yeargin.

"I had a very good visit," Wilson said. "I like how Coach Brian Kelly emphasized football and a degree. A degree from Notre Dame can take you anywhere."

Wilson said one of the best parts of the three-day visit was learning from the players. They were hosted by early enrollee freshmen James Onwualu and Mike Heuerman.

"The highlight was getting to know the guys on the team," Wilson said. "They welcomed us in and I had a really good time with them. James and Mike talked to us about the competition. They said everywhere you look at Notre Dame, there is competition - on the field and in the classroom. There's a high standard."

When the 6-foot-2, 195-pound corner spoke with the staff, he said they were big on his potential.

"They like to recruit big, long corners like me and develop us," Wilson said.

Wilson has a top 12 that includes Notre Dame. He's headed to Ohio State today (Saturday) and will visit Alabama, LSU, USC, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida this summer. Wilson plans to narrow his list to five after the summer and take official visits.

"The biggest factor for me will be how comfortable I feel," Wilson said. "Everything else will come after."

Wilson is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 41 safety in the 2014 class.
