Alabama Athlete Picks Up Two New Offers

Alabama Athlete Picks Up Two New Offers

Keiron Wilson took center stage last year after turning in 84 tackles, 3 sacks and 1 interception. If it was the attention of D1 coaches he wanted, mission accomplished.

"Recruiting is going really good," said Keiron Wilson. "I've picked up two new offers. My first offer was South Alabama. I just picked up offers from Arkansas State and UAB."

Wilson believes more offers are on the horizon and several teams have communicated that an offer could come at any time.

"Ole Miss is recruiting me the hardest. They are really coming at me hard right now. I"m either going to visit Ole Miss when they play Vandy or South Carolina. Ole Miss told me that if I came on a visit that I would get an offer. They are really pushing me. They say I can get on the field soon. They even asked me if I wanted to play safety or outside linebacker. Clemson is also close to offering me. They told me that if I pulled up my ACT that I would get an offer. I plan on retaking my ACT in October."

What does the Alabama Prep star like about the schools who have offered him?

"I talk to the UAB coaches a lot. They are really cool guys and they want me to play OLB for them. Arkansas State wants me to come up for a visit. They are recruiting me to play safety. South Alabama was the first school to offer me and I have gotten close with their coaching staff."

Has Wilson decided on what schools will receive and official visit?

"I'm not sure what schools. I want to take all my visits before making any decisions. I want to visit as many schools as I can. I went to watch Auburn play Southern Miss last weekend (unofficially). I had a lot of fun."

How has Wilson played on the gridiron this season?

"We're playing great. We're 2-0 and both games we won were very physical. I've played well in both games."

Wilson's speed is his greatest asset. He does an excellent job of shedding blocks and finishing plays. He has excellent blitzing ability and also looks good dropping into coverage. He could play linebacker or safety at the next level depending on how his frame holds weight after a year or two in a college lifting program. Recommended Stories
