James Wilder Jr. Officially Commits To FSU Over Florida and Georgia

Well it appears the talk of James Wilder to Georgia was just that, talk.

After days of speculation, rumors, and reports, Wilder officially committed to FSU on Wednesday during an announcement at Plant View High School in Tampa.

On Tuesday, Brent McMurphy of AOL Fanhouse reported that Wilder was set to commit to Georgia "barring a last minute change of heart."

This morning Mitch Stephens of MaxPreps.com indicated that a source close to MaxPreps said there was an 80-90 percent chance that Wilder will not commit to Georgia and that proved to be the more reliable of the two reports. 

Wilder is the No. 1 prospect in the country on MaxPreps, the No. 3 prospect on Rivals, and the No. 7 prospect on Scout. He's projected as a 5-star talent on both ends of the field and has thrived as a running back and linebacker in high school. 

The 6'3" and 215 pound prospect insisted that he wanted to play running back in college and it appears that's where his home is going to be with the Seminoles, at least for now. 

Here's the breakdown of the situation in Tallahassee.
