N.C. State Football Recruiting: Wolfpack offer Quincy Wilson


Now that the 2013 football recruiting class is done with, it’s time to take a close focus on the 2014 crop of recruits. The North Carolina State Wolfpack have just offered one of the top recruits at the safety position in the 2014 class in Fort Lauderdale’s Quincy Wilson, who is rated as a high-end, three-star recruit. The standout at the esteemed University School has excellent speed, and he is one of the top 25 safety recruits in the class.

N.C. State, Duke, Clemson, Auburn, Florida, Cincinnati, Illinois, UNC, USF, LSU, Iowa State, Indiana, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Rutgers, Stanford, Tennessee, Wake Forest, West Virginia, UCF, Vanderbilt, Syracuse, Maryland, Texas A&M, UCF, and Louisiana-Lafayette make up a bevy of solid offers for a recruit who could potentially rise into a top 300 ranking.

Quincy Wilson runs a 4.5 forty and is 6’2″, 195 pounds. One of the top 40 recruits in the state of Florida, Wilson is one of the most sought-after defensive backs in the 2014 recruiting cycle. It’s mind-boggling how many offers this guy has already netted, and Nick Saban and Urban Meyer recently visited University School and, more likely than not, checked in with Wilson. The Buckeyes have already offered him, but Alabama has not shown interest.

The major program closest to Wilson, Miami, has shown interest but has not offered Wilson yet. Florida State hasn’t shown interest yet either, but that offer from the Florida Gators (and the ones from USF and UCF) is definitely a significant one. Wilson did attend Miami’s junior day last week, so that is something to watch for closely in his recruitment. Wilson has not indicated which teams he is leaning towards early on, which is what makes his recruitment even more enticing.
