4-star Wilson impressed with visit

Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland athlete Tony Wilson was so impressed with the Gators this past weekend, at least one other prospect on the visit thought the 5-foot-10, 165 pounder was committed to the Gators.

After speaking with him on Saturday, current Gator commitment, Terron Sanders was under the impression that Wilson was already committed to Florida.

"One of the receivers they have committed, Antonio (Wilson) spoke with me about the team and how much he liked it there," said Sanders.

When asked about it, Wilson laughed and said there was a misunderstanding.

"I'm not committed anywhere yet. My weekend went great, the competition was awesome. I'm going to say it was the best competition I've been up against."

Wilson had a chance to catch passes from two different quarterbacks. Well, not just passes, touchdown passes.

"Tebow and Fayson were throwing me the ball. Every time I touched the ball I scored."

Although he had a good time Friday night, it was on Saturday that stood out to him.

"I learned so much about the team and the coaching staff and how they do things at Florida. It blew me away to see what's happening. I'm not going to lie, it helped the Gators with me."

But according to him, what it didn't do was cause him to commit.

"Florida and Georgia are still the top two schools I like the most. I'm going to take some visits before I commit."

When he makes that commitment, you can be sure that one player in particular will be in his ear.

"I hooked up with Avery (Atkins) and we went row boating and canoing. Then we went out on the other side of the lake trying to find alligators, but we didn't find none."

According to Wilson, his former teammate also filled him in on what it's like to be a Gator.

"He said it's been all good so far. He said the main difference is that you have to work a lot harder than you do in high school. He loves being a Gator. He wants me to play there too, but he wants me to look around and make sure that this is the right place for me."
