Wilson Close to Decision

Akron, Ohio defensive end Lawrence Wilson has been close to making his final decision for a while. Irish Eyes spoke to the talented two-way player on Wednesday and Wilson said he's even closer to his final decision. Are the Irish still in the hunt?

Defensive end Lawrence Wilson says he's close to making his final decision.

"It's getting closer," said Wilson. "It could possibly be this week. I've been thinking hard about it."

Wilson says he's talked it over with his parents many times in the last few weeks.

"We talk about it almost every day," he said. "They've been helping me. I'm getting close."

We asked Wilson what would finally push him over the edge to announce his decision.

"I guess when I feel the time is right. I feel like I'm getting there."

We asked Wilson if he had eliminated anyone at this point.

"I wouldn't say I've eliminated anyone. It's really close between Notre Dame and Ohio State," Wilson said.

We asked Wilson if he was leaning towards staying closer to home and choosing Ohio State.

Not really," he said.

Does that mean that he's leaning towards Notre Dame?

"I wouldn't say that, either."

At any rate, Wilson insists he's close to making his final decision and says it's "real likely" his decision could come this week.

Comments: Too close to call. I've said the longer this plays out, the better Notre Dame's chances of landing him. However, I'm not sure what to think at this point. I wouldn't be surprised if he chose either Notre Dame or Ohio State at this point.
