  • Brewster Academy Wing Sid Wilson Planning to Go in 2017

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Brewster (N.H.) Academy and New Heights wing Sid Wilson now plans to attend college in 2017 after initially reclassifying to 2018 last July when he transferred from St. Raymond’s High School in The Bronx.

    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.”
