Wilder Eyeing The Deacs

LB Vernon Wilder of Miami Carol City (Fl) helped lead his team to a 14-1 record and the 6A state championship. He had 140 tackles/6 sacks/3 FC/1 FR.

Vernon favors Florida A&M (offer) solid over Wake, Miss St, Tulane (offer) and Tenn St (offer). He visited Florida A&M on 1/9. "I like the environment a lot and they are going D1 and are gonna be getting good national exposure. They have a TV contract and have a lot going for them."

He says there's a 70% chance he'll choose Florida A&M. He also visited Ball St on 1/16. "But they had another LB commit and said they wouldn't have an offer for me."

Vernon will visit Tenn St on 1/23 and will visit either Tulane or Miss St on 1/30. "I like Tenn St because I have a good relationship with the coaches and my godmother went there and loved it."
