Marvin Wilson in Line for Fifth Star

Aug. 20 -- Scout handicaps the most likely prospect to be named the next five-star prospect in the Midlands region, an it's a recruit with UCLA on his early list...



In the 2017 Midlands (Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas) rankings only Denton (Texas) Guyer Shawn Robinson is the lone five-star rated recruit.

Which prospect has the best shot of joining him as one of the elite five-star prospects?

Marvin Wilson.

The 6-foot-4, 309-pound defensive tackle from Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal is an absolute monster and is also one of the more heavily targeted prospects in the nation.

He has picked up offers from coast-to-coast but mentioned schools like Michigan, LSU, Texas A&M, USC and UCLA in a loose top five back in June, but also took in the Under the Lights Camp at Texas in July.

It is early enough that his favorites list may change a few times, but the talent will always be there.

He currently checks in as the No. 20 rated prospect in the country per the latest Scout Top 100 update and is only five spots away from adding that coveted fifth star.

It is likely only a matter of time before it is made official.

Wilson had a huge sophomore year with 67 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, and 15 sacks.
