Wilson Recaps Ohio State Visit

By Miles Joseph on June 17, 2013 at 7:10p

After taking three corners in last year's recruiting class and already having one in the 2014 class, the Ohio State staff is probably going to take one more pure cornerback in this class. The most likely recruit to become the second and last corner in this class is Orlando (FL) University School cornerback Quincy Wilson. Wilson was in Columbus last weekend for the second time and came away more impressed with the Ohio State football program than after his first visit.

"Last summer was my first time there and I did the camp, so I didn't really get to see anything," Wilson said. "This time around I got to see the campus, meet some of the guys, and hangout with Ryan Shazier. Coach Coombs and I went over some schemes and it was great"

A lot of people think Wilson will end up as a member of this class and this visit definitely helped the Buckeyes' cause in landing the standout defensive back.

"The visit helped. I really got a feel for the coaches and the academics are great." 

Some people think Wilson will end up playing safety at the college level, but the Ohio State coaching staff feels otherwise.

"They see me as a cornerback. I look just like the guys they have there and if I come into the program, I will develop."

If Wilson ultimately does decide to sign with the Buckeyes in February of 2014, Kerry Coombs will be his position coach. When asked if the "fiery" approach from Coombs' is something that would fit him, he had good things to say.

"Yeah it does. I want somebody that is going to get the best out of me."

Next up for Wilson are visits to USC and UCLA. While he hasn't sat down and decided where and when he'll be taking his official visits, he said it would be fair to say one of them will be to Ohio State.

Finally, Wilson said he could see himself playing for the Buckeyes, but had no thoughts of committing. He will likely make his college decision this fall after taking all five of his official visits.

This guy will be a S I think he is already huge, and will only get bigger. Reminds me of Sean Taylor in that #26. This guy is going to be really good!

Kid is a stud!!! Perfect example of why to look at offers opposed to star rating

Offers aren't always the best thing to look at. A guy like Jalin Marshall never received a ton of offers because he was clearly all buckeye. However, he was high in all 4 rankings services. 

"You'll be proud of our young people in the classroom, in the community, and most especially in 310 days in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the football field."

I agree but he committed early, so couldn't that be a reason for the lack of offers?

No way he plays corner. He most likely will be a Safety or Star.

The South will NOT rise again!

I think he will play corner as long as he can keep his speed.  They are taking bigger corners to combat the bigger receivers.  I feel like they want their corners to be between 6' and 6'2.  Just my two cents.

Good size, likes to hit, tackles well in space, and has speed. Yep, sign him up.

He would definately be a great get for OSU whether it be as a CB or he grows into safety.We need a few big CBs.

Looks like a slightly thicker Malcolm Jenkins. Would play CB for OSU and then safety in the NFL.

Marshon Lattimore will almost certainly be a Buckeye. That makes 3 CBs in the 2014 class if we land Quincy Wilson as well. I'm assuming Lattimore will play defense. Maybe a Chris Gamble 2.0?

Vonn Bell once asked me in class if he could borrow my pencil and he never gave it back. Ain't even mad.

I notice that Shazier is usually mentioned whenever a recruit talks about current players they hung out with. The guy is a beast on and off the field. A great ambassador for tOSU!

Seems like Braxton's name gets mentioned a good bit with the offensive recruits as well. I find it no coincidence that the coaches let recruits hang out with consensus First Team All Americans.

Loving all things Buckeye from SEC country in Alabama.

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

I liked what I saw in spite of the horrible horror flick music on the six second loop.  If the video wasn't so tantalizing, I would have stopped watching after a minute just to avoid that noise! Keep those Florida recruits coming!

Someone needs to run a class for people that make up recruiting highlight videos. While I am sure this kid is talented, seeing as how he a target of so many elite programs, a lot of these highlights don't show much in the way of talent. One showed him hitting a quarterback well after the ball was gone, one showed him defending a pass that was thrown behind the receiver and there was one where an opposing RB breaks a big run and he almost catches up with him before someone else tackles the ball carrier. At the next level that would have meant he would have got a good view of the ball carriers number as he scored. 
I've noticed this in other recruiting vids, this one just kind of stuck out to me. With the talent this kid has, it probably would have been easy to edit in some better highlights.

ESPN starting the SEC channel to concentrate on the SEC is like Baskin-Robbins starting a new store to concentrate on selling ice cream.
