The Florida Gators pick up another big commitment on Monday evening when four star cornerback Marco Wilson made his pledge on his father’s radio show Gridiron Studs.
Wilson, the younger brother of Gator starting cornerback Quincy Wilson, picked the Gators over Georgia, FSU, Ohio State, and Miami.
He is a 247sports composite four star ranked #214 overall and he becomes the Gators 13th commitment in the 2017 cycle.
A natural corner with length, Wilson is an elite defensive back recruit with good hips, great speed, and excellent ball skills. He’s an aggressive cover corner who excels in man coverage and is a solid tackler.
His 4.42 40 yard dash time at The Opening was one of the fastest times at the event.
His Sparq rating of 122.28 was good for 28th overall and in drills he more than held his own using his speed and natural athleticism to prove that he is indeed one of the top football players in the nation.
His pledge moves the Gators up to #15 overall in the 247sports team recruiting rankings.
As an interesting side note, shortly after his commitment, he became the first recruit to be retweeted by head coach Jim McElwain under new NCAA rules which allow coaches to do so.
