Florida State Recruiting: A Look at WR Recruit Jesus Wilson

Blake SilversAnalyst IIIApril 18, 2012


Miami native Jesus Wilson, a talented wide receiver from Columbus High School, has been on the wish list of many top programs around college football for some time. However, he seems to have at least a handful of favorites on his own list.  

According to 247sports.com, Wilson "nearly committed to Florida State at their Junior Day." This may have given the Seminoles a leg up in a battle that currently still includes Florida, Miami, Florida Atlantic and West Virginia.

The recruit with a religious name has also been coveted by Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and Vanderbilt, among others.  

Wilson is currently considered a 4-star prospect by Rivals.com and is ranked No. 15 nationally at the receiver position.  At 5'10" and 165 pounds, his size may be a concern for some programs, but those at Florida State seem to believe that he has a ton of potential and have continued their pursuit. 

During his sophomore season at Columbus, Wilson posted 23 catches for 424 yards and five touchdowns, according to Scout.com. His stats during his junior season held somewhat steady, leading the team at his position with 28 catches for 456 yards and eight touchdowns, according to the Miami Herald.

Meanwhile, Jimbo Fisher's 2013 recruiting class currently has one wide receiver commitment in Orlando's Tony Stevens, who pulled the trigger on Florida State shortly after signing day.
