CINCINNATI -- This summer, Quincy Wilson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School) spent time making visits to schools outside of Florida. During the fall, his early plans are to keep it in state, and he has one school in mind that he might visit.
“Maybe Florida, but I haven’t really gotten into any of that,” the 2014 cornerback said. “I’ve always had interest in Florida. I know a DB there, Cody Riggs.
A fellow Fort Lauderdale product, Riggs was a 2010 Under Armour All-American and has played in every game at Florida since his freshman season. Of those 26 games, 13 were starts, including three as a freshman.
Riggs is not pushing the Gators on Wilson, though.
“He’s telling me to take my time with the recruiting process and to make a decision wherever I feel is home,” Wilson said.
This summer, nearby Miami (Fla.), Auburn and Ohio State received visits from the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Wilson.
“I met Urban Meyer and (assistant) Coach (Kerry) Coombs and developed a good relationship with them,” he said.
He echoed similar sentiments about Auburn.
“I really liked it. I developed a good relationship with Coach [Willie] Martinez, and I just keep in touch with him,” Wilson said.
In all, 15 programs have offered Wilson, and that number could double by the time he makes a decision. As of now, that decision won’t come for at least another year.
“Probably deep into my senior season I’ll make a decision,” Wilson said. “I want to take official visits. I’ve only been to three colleges, and I just want to learn about these colleges so I can make the right decision.”
