Minneapolis North and Grassroots Sizzle class of 2022 Willie Wilson received an offer from The University of Florida on Thursday. Wilson had a very productive spring and summer for Grassroots Sizzle and followed it up with a strong performance at our Larry Hughes Elite Camp a few weeks ago, which solidified the offer.
“It feels good to receive an offer like this,” said Wilson. “I’m still putting in work though, so I’m not really satisfied!”
Wilson’s family are excited about the offer, but they know he can’t stop there. “They were happy for me, but they still expect more from me,” added Wilson.
The Florida coaching staff is wasting no time to get in to see their newest offeree, showing how much of a priority he is going to be for them in the 2022 class. “Coach Mike White and Coach Al Pinkins are going to be in on September 10th to see me play.”
The Grassroots program has seen Florida come into Minnesota and offer quite a few kids in their program, but that’s nothing of concern to Wilson right now. “We cooling,” said Wilson regarding his teammates having the same interest from Florida.
Florida isn’t the only school interested in the 2022 guard, and not the lone SEC school as well. According to his AAU director Brian Sandifer, Iowa, Iowa State, Illinois, and Vanderbilt are expected to be in at some point in the fall to see Wilson.
As for what’s next? Well, that’s simple. It’s still fairly early in the recruiting process for Wilson, the two sport standout athlete as he’s currently focused on the football season at the moment. But that’s certainly not going to stop him from continuing to work on his game and earn more offers.
“Just putting in more work.”
