The 6-foot-7 Wilson told me at the recent Under Armor stop in New York that four schools are working the hardest: Texas, Maryland, Florida and Syracuse.
He broke down each school:
Texas: “I have a great relationship with them, the whole coaching staff. I took a visit down there last summer, it was wonderful, I loved it.”
Florida: “They showing me a lot of love. They sent three of the coaches to my open gym [at Brewster Academy], that was real big. One of my teammates [Mike Okauru] committed to Florida, he told me a lot about how they train and get players together.”
Maryland: “Me and coach Bino [Ranson] are real cool. They talk to me a lot. I like the program a lot.”
Syracuse: “Hometown favorite school. Me and coach Red [Autry] have a good relationship, I’ve known him since the eighth grade.”
UConn is also interested in Wilson for 2017. In January he said of the Huskies:
“They’re great as well. Coach [Dwayne] Killings was recruiting me even when he was at Temple, so he moved to UConn and he started pushing for me there. Coach [Kevin] Ollie, when I went on an unofficial, his message was great to me. He just felt that I was one of those players he could just push to be great so that was mind-boggling to me, like he’s got that much faith in me as a player.”
