Defensive end George Wilson Jr. commits and signs with Florida State

Florida State continues to rebuild the defensive end room

George Wilson

The Florida State Seminoles landed their first new commit on the first day of the early signing period, when George Wilson Jr. announced he was signing with the Seminoles:

The former South Carolina commit left the Gamecocks after they fired Coach Will Muschamp. FSU quickly offered Wilson and ended up winning his services over Auburn and North Carolina:

George Wilson Jr., who plays at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is a composite 3-star but 247 ranks him much higher than the other services, listing him as a 4-star and ranked as the 188th best player in the nation.

Wilson measures in at 6’5, 215 pounds and will be playing defensive end for Florida State. He currently plays both basketball and football in high school, but will solely focus on football once in college. This change in focus will allow him to add extra weight to his frame.

When you watch Wilson’s highlights, his speed jumps off the screen. If a tackle is a hair slow, Wilson doesn’t just have him beat, Wilson is past him. Combine his speed with his length and he’s in the backfield and in the quarterback’s face in a blur. He fills a need that Florida State has sorely missed, a speed rusher off the edge.

Stay tuned later this week for a full scouting report on Wilson. But until then, enjoy watching the future Seminole harass high school quarterbacks.
