Florida Gators Hoping To Reel In A Big Fish Tonight

It’s #MarcoMonday!

What’s that you say?

Well, if you don’t recognize the hashtag you’re probably not an active member of Gator Twitter.

No worries however.

So what is #MarcoMonday?

Well in simple terms, it’s Monday and it’s the day that Ft. Lauderdale (FL) American Heritage cornerback Marco Wilson will announce his college commitment.

Wilson is a considered a four star recruit on the 247sports composite ranking system and is the 214th ranked recruit overall.

He’s also the younger brother of Gator cornerback Quincy Wilson who along with Jalen Tabor may very well be the best cornerback tandem in the SEC and in the country.

He is, however, a fantastic defensive back in his own right.

An invitee to the prestigious Nike sponsored camp The Opening, Wilson ran a 4.42 40 yard dash and proved he was among the best high school recruits in the nation.

He had a Sparq score of 122.28 good for 28th overall and held his own in drills against top wide receivers in attendance.

He’s also quite acrobatic as this viral video of him making a one-handed catch while doing a backflip attests.

He’s a naturally gifted athlete with solid cover skills and good hands and projects well in college at multiple positions in the defensive backfield.

His father Chad Wilson played at Miami and they are one of his five finalists along with Florida, Southern Cal, Ohio State, and Georgia.

Many recruiting analysts believe it’s a Florida-Miami battle in the end with the Gators holding the edge.

The Gators are confident that they land this big time defensive back tonight but you can checkout Gridiron Studs yourself to find out where he commits tonight at 8 pm eastern time.

With Tabor most likely leaving after this season for the NFL and brother Quincy possibly leaving early as well, the Gators are expected to sign a large DB class this cycle and expect Marco to climb aboard the Gator train tonight.
