Florida football recruiting: Cornerback Marco Wilson, brother of Quincy, commits to Gators

A second Wilson will come to The Swamp.

Like brother, like brother: Four-star cornerback Marco Wilson, brother of Florida junior Quincy Wilson, became the latest prospect to join Florida’s recruiting class on Monday night, announcing his commitment on a radio program.

Wilson made his commitment on his father Chad’s Gridiron Studs radio show, saying “I think the best choice for me would be to commit to the University of Florida.” He picked the Gators over his dad’s Miami Hurricanes, Georgia, Ohio State, and USC.

But don’t think big brother had that much to do with this commitment. Chad Wilson said on air that Quincy was kept in the dark on the commitment, which Marco commended with a resounding “Good!”

Wilson held reams of offers even as a rising junior in 2015, before a torn ACL kept him out for the entire fall season. He’s come back stronger, reportedly, but the athlete who set the Internet ablaze with a catch in the middle of a backflip has had his star cool on the recruiting trail, if only slightly, without another year of game tape.

That diminution of esteem may not mean a diminution of talent, given what Wilson was able to do as a sophomore at American Heritage in South Florida. In his highlights, Wilson appears to be every bit as physical as his bigger, stronger older brother, with slightly better speed and quickness.

Wilson is the 13th member of a recruiting class that entered the national top 15 with his commitment, and the second cornerback, following Calfornian Elijah Blades.
