For 2010 Richland Northeast High QB/WR Ker-Sean Wilson the season has been a long time coming. Emerging 2 years ago as a sophomore Wilson has remained in the spotlight for Jay Frye's squad over his career. SCPrepNation.com caught up with the Cavaliers' field general to get an update regarding his offseason, recruitment, and thoughts looking forward to the start of his senior season tonight.
"My offseason has been pretty good. It really went by pretty fast too," Wilson told us.
Last year under center for the Cavaliers Wilson put together a solid junior season as he passed for 1397 yards and 15 touchdowns and also rushed 162 times for 657 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground. All things considered it's easy to see why Wilson plays such a vital role in the offensive success of the Cavaliers. For his senior season Wilson is looking to up the stakes even more.
"My goals for this season are to go win a state championship and be remembered as a good football player now and on the next level too."
Talking about the next level Wilson has a number of schools showing interest thus far. "I'm hearing from Middle Tennesse, East Carolina, South Carolina State, Buffalo, and Western Carolina. There's a lot of the big schools recruiting me too. Out of everyone I'd have to say East Carolina, Buffalo, Western Carolina, North Carolina State, and Virginia Tech are recruiting me the hardest."
Wilson says he holds scholarship offers currently from Western Carolina, Buffalo, and South Carolina State.
"This offseason I tried to work hard on pre snap reads and playcalling. I'd also like to get better using better judgement when throwing the ball."
Wilson says the use of his legs running with the ball remains one of his biggest strengths at the quarterback position.
Looking ahead to his senior season Wilson says he's looking forward to facing two teams in particular. "Spring Valley because they are our archrivals and Blythewood because we've never beaten them before."
Asked about some of the toughest players he's faced he quickly replied, "I've seen some tough guys during my career but nothing I haven't seen before."
In regards to college Wilson offered a great deal of information as to what he'll be looking at during the recruiting and decision making process.
"Most schools are recruiting me as a quarterback or wide receiver. I really don't have a preference as to what position I play as long as I get the ball in my hands."
Ker-Sean said atmosphere, good educational background, and lots of television exposure would likely play a big role for his decision. Don't expect an early decision though as he plans on waiting until Signing Day.
Currently he says he holds no favorites at this juncture of his recruitment.
