Wilson Down To Two Schools

It won't be much longer before defensive end Lawrence Wilson of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary makes a final college decision. Duane Long talked to Lawrence and his father to find out the final two schools.

Defensive end Lawrence Wilson of Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary is down to two schools. There was a rumor that circulated that he had decided on Notre Dame, but that does not appear to be true.

"There is no truth to the rumor that he's recommitted to Notre Dame," said Wilson's father. "No truth whatsoever. He's down to Ohio State and Notre Dame. He'll make a decision next week, likely late in the week."

The Wilsons enjoyed their visit to Florida, but distance eliminated the Gators.

"Florida was really nice, but it's too far away," Wilson's father said. "I've been watching my son play all his life. I'm not going to stop now."

Lawrence flatly denied making a commitment.

"No, I have not committed to anybody," he said. "I don't know where that came from. I'll be making a decision later in the week."

Michigan was previously on Wilson's visit list, but the Wolverines appear to have run out of scholarship spots.

"It just wasn't going to work out," Lawrence said. "That visit is cancelled and I'm not going to make it up."
