Three SEC programs received a special gift on Christmas Day from the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker.
Lyndell Wilson, a 5-star prospect from Carver High School (Montgomery, Ala.), announced on Twitter that Florida, Alabama and Georgia are his final three schools, and that is in order. He will take official visits to those three colleges in January, beginning with Georgia on Jan 15., Alabama on Jan. 22 and Florida on Jan. 29.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder has had Florida at the top of his list for a couple of months now with Alabama remaining a close second. UGA recently joined his favorite schools list after the hiring of coach Kirby Smart, who has personally recruited Wilson since his ninth grade year. He told SEC Country what he likes about each program.
On Florida — “Florida is my No. 1 for a reason. I feel like that’s a place where I can see myself playing for the next three to four years. That’s why they are my No. 1. I feel comfortable when I go down there. I’m comfortable with all of the coaches. I’m building a relationship with them now.”
On Alabama — “Bama is still one of those dream schools I grew up dreaming about playing football for. I feel like they still have the best program in college football.”
On Georgia — “(Kirby Smart and I) have a great relationship. He has been one of those guys that has been recruiting me since ninth grade. The chances of me going to Georgia could be pretty good. It just depends on how my recruitment goes with him. I’m just going to wait and see how it plays out.”
Wilson is rated as the nation’s No. 13 overall prospect and No. 2 prospect in the state of Alabama.
