Miami Northwestern offensive lineman Torrian Wilson has been one of the best offensive linemen in Miami-Dade County for the past two seasons. His regular season came to an end due to a knee injury, but he's aiming to play one more game.
"I'm going to play in the UnderArmor All-Star game in January," said Wilson. "We start practicing next week and I'm really looking forward to that."
The 6'4-315 pound Wilson committed to Stanford back in September but recently de-committed and has opening things up.
"Yeah I decided to de-commit and open things back up," said Wilson. "It's a great school, but we thought it was kind of far."
The 3-star OL picked Stanford over dozens of other offers including Alabama, Tennessee, Michigan and Miami. Now that he's opening things back up, Wilson has three he's focusing on.
"Right now I'm looking at USF, Tennessee, and Michigan," said Torrian.
USF "I think they are an upcoming program, and they have no choice but to get better, so I think they're going to be real good very soon. They got good coaches and are doing very good things."
Tennessee "I like a lot about them, the conference they're in, the coaches, the players, and the academics."
Michigan "I really like them too, the coaches have been on me hard, they be calling me and calling me, from the beginning"
"They are all pretty much even right now," said Wilson
Wilson already visited CSU, and is set to take an official visit to Tennessee on Jan. 15, Michigan the week after on Jan. 22, and to Western Kentucky on the 30th. He doesn't have one set yet for South Florida but plans on seeing them as well.
Torrian has been to Tampa, but never to USF and is eager to see the campus.
"We don't have one set but we're talking and should have something set up this week," said
Torrian. "If it's not official, then I'll take an un-official there." Torrian added "I can see them anytime because they're not too far from me, and I can drive over."
Wilson has been recruited by Bulls OL coach Larry Scott, and says they have a good relationship.
"I like Coach Scott a lot, he's been recruiting me since the beginning," said Wilson. "He tells me I can come in with a good chance to start, about their system and what type of a coach he is. We get along real well."
Wilson's teammate Todd Chandler committed to USF last week, and the two will play together in the UnderArmor game.
"He committed and that won't be a big factor for me in my choice," said Torrian, "But it would be fun."
Torrian said he likes all the coaches he's talking to and has a few things he's looking for in making his choice.
"Playing time is important, I want to play as a freshman," said Wilson. "Right now I want to see the schools to help me make up my mind. I want to see how I feel on my visit, and if I feel like home.
