Both FSU insiders now feeling good about their chances to land Wilson.
Yeah, Ohio State has a good lead for him right now. Need to get him up for a visit this Spring though, since he couldnt make it to The Game to further strengthen that lead.
We wont have any true one techs on the roster after Hill leaves. Landers has been Hill's back up, but he's a natural three tech, so is Jones, Sprinkle, Cage and Garrett. Wilson would come in and instantly be Hill's backup, in line to start next season after he leaves or maybe even this season. They could move Hill over and put Wilson at the one tech spot as I noted above, if he's good enough to play his Freshman year.
LSU's base defense is a 3-4 and Wilson has noted that he doesn't want to play in a 3-4, so their defensive coordinator has been selling him on them using multiple defensive sets. Either way, they will have 6'5, 308 pound Senior Greg Gilmore, 6'2, 333 pound Sophomore Edwin Alexander, 6'4, 356 pound Redshirt Junior Travonte Valentine, 6'3, 300 pound Sophomore Rashard Lawrence, 6'6, 330 pound true freshman Austin Deculus who early enrolled and 6'3, 380 pound true freshman Tyler Shelvin all at the same spot that Marvin Wilson would play.
I agree, plus most site insiders tend to be a little homerish towards their team.
I dont think he would start over Hill, maybe they move Hill to three tech like they did Washington his last season and insert Wilson at the one tech spot.
Florida's 247 insider says that he hears Ohio State will not be a factor in Robinson's recruitment. Florida feels like they are in good shape to land him.
Wilson goes in home with Stoops on Tuesday, Meyer on Wednesday and Fisher on Thursday.
Wilson has specific questions for each head coach.
Urban Meyer: Can I trust you? It’s a long ways from home to Columbus, Ohio. Right now they have a leg up because my boys Jeff [Okudah] and Baron [Browning] are loving it up there. How are going to take care of me and develop me, and how early can I make an impact?
Yup, he was a top 10 and i think even top 5 player on Rivals up until that injury.
That's not even plausible. You think an uncommitted prospect was told that if he visits another school, they wouldn't take him? Bold move, that I doubt would happen.
Judson nor Walker were elite talents that the staff lost sleep over after losing them. At first both were highly ranked, but they never took the next step in their development that the staff wanted. Walker actually regressed his Senior season and Judson was replaced by someone much better.
Flight complications, may end up visiting next weekend, the weekend he's scheduled to visit Michigan.
Heard the same about Shaun Wade when he committed in January of 2015. I'll take Meyer's chances in locking up elite talent early and being able to hold onto them.
Wiltfong followed up by putting in his own crystal ball pick for Haselwood to Ohio State.
Yup, not only is Jones in discussion as the #1 player in the entire 2018 class, but he has a bond with a lot of top talent in Georgia in 2018 and 2019 and he's just a likable kid who attracts a lot of kids that wants to play with him.
Haselwood named Ohio State his leader in a premium article with scout recently.
Another tweet from Chad Simmons back in December.
Yup, some of them they were going to offer anyways because they are great players, but Jeshawn Sheffield, Keiondre Jones, Jadon Haselwood and Jamaree Sayler are just a few five stars out of Georgia in the next couple of classes that have mentioned their close relationship with Emory Jones.
Many times, off the field issues are due to the crowd a recruit keeps. I'm sure if he's looking for trouble hard enough, he can find it in Columbus too, but maybe being 15 hours away from home would be good for him.
Birm posted that Robinson was set to arrive at 6 for his official visit. A poster on Bucknuts says that he has a good friend who just spoke with Robinson, Robinson wants to be a Buckeye and brought Mom on the trip with him to get her approval.

The bulk of recruiting is already occurring earlier and earlier. Ohio State has sent out a lot of 2019 offers lately and have been checking in on 2020 recruits.
If there was an early signing period this year, Darnay Holmes would have been a Buckeye.
Another reason is that so much kids are committing earlier and earlier. We had the majority of our class committed before the season even begun. This will allow recruits and families to visit schools before their kids make a decision. So much times we here about distance and money being a factor for why a kid cant visit a school or for why his family cant make it with him on unofficial visits.
They are the school that came to mind for me. Commentators always mention the large amount of non-coaching staff members they have.
Thanks, Kiester. Good to see the NCAA finally making changes that are needed.
