Marvin Wilson - No 1 DT in America for 2017

Marvin Wilson is the No 1 defensive tackle in the country for 2017.  The 6-foot-4, 309-pound standout checks in from Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal.  


Marvin Wilson is a four-star prospect that will without question end up with elite five-star status in my opinion.  Wilson has offers from LSU, Michigan, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC to name a few.  What factors will Wilson use to ultimately make his final decision?


“If I can come in and play right away,” Wilson said.  “Will I receiver the best coaching?  Who is going to help me develop into a man and help me get my education and continue to the next level.?  Playing time really doesn’t matter my first year I just want to be in the mix on the field.  I do want to come in and start but so does every other freshman in the country.  Relationships with coaches doesn’t matter.  I can play anywhere in the country so location doesn’t matter.” Take:


Wilson is a massive defensive line prospect who dominates at the point of attack. Possesses the strength and power to overwhelm most opponents at the high school level. Tall, long-armed, thick-trunked. Consistently gets off blocks to make plays vs. run and as a pass-rusher. Powerful bull-rusher, sometimes even when doubled. Can play a bit too high at times because of his height. One of the top prospects in Texas in the 2017 cycle. -G. Brooks
