Wilson Close To Setting Up Visits

We caught up with the family of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary DE/LB Lawrence Wilson, and his father said that visits should get set up this week.

DE/TE Lawrence Wilson of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary is getting ready to set up his visits. Wilson and his family took in the Notre Dame game last Saturday ("It was a wonderful experience," his mother said).

"We were at Notre Dame last Saturday and we're trying to get to Ohio State and Pitt for games," Wilson's father said.

Wilson's father said that this is the week visits will be set up.

"We're going to be setting up our visits this week," Mr. Wilson said. "We want this wrapped up by basketball season at the latest. It will likely just be the three schools -- Ohio State, Notre Dame and Pitt.

"(Lawrence) said he wanted to go down to Georgia Tech, but I don't think he has time for that. We get a good cross-section of schools with those three."

Wilson's father said that he often gets asked why Lawrence's interest in Pittsburgh has been so consistent.

"Everybody asks me that," Mr. Wilson said. "Pitt was the first to offer. That made an impression on Lawrence."

So far, Wilson seems to be off to a good start this season.

"He's having a really good year so far," Mr. Wilson said. "He's had four sacks and two touchdowns as a tight end. He looks really good there."
