Can Raishawn Wilson Replace Andre Hall?

He's got the speed, the power, and the hands. The question is will the Bulls be able to lure him away from the Big 3. Read on to find out who he has offers from, who he's visiting later this month and what USF has been doing to recruit him.

Running back Raishawn Wilson is one of the top running backs in North Florida, Wilson helped lead his team (St. Augustine High School) to the Class 3A state championship in 2005. He finished the season with over 1,000 yards and he ran one of the fastest 40-times at the All-American Combine in Jacksonville in early March.

USF will be looking to land a high-caliber back such as Wilson to replace superstar Andre Hall. This year is a very important one at the running back position especially after losing out on the Javarris James sweepstakes. Wilson brings a lot of the attributes that Hall had, including speed, power and explosiveness. At 5-foot-10 190 pounds Wilson runs a 4.45 40.

"My strengths are definitely my speed and power, but also getting one-on-one with a linebacker in the passing game." Wilson added, "I'm pretty good at catching balls out of the backfield."

As of now Wilson says he only has one offer and that came from Illinois. He is also receiving interest from UF, FSU and UM. He went to the Gators junior day and plans to take an unofficial visit to Miami later this month. The Bulls are in the mix as well says Wilson, "USF has sent me mail. They invited me to a camp this summer and I may also be at the spring game."

If his senior year is anything like his junior year this will be another tough recruiting battle for USF to win. Wilson is in Coach Dawsey's recruiting area, a region the Bulls did pretty well in last year. USFNation will keep you updated throughout the summer and into recruiting season on Raishawn Wilson.
