Quincy Wilson signs with Florida on National Signing Day 2014: Recruitment, highlights, impact

In Quincy Wilson, Florida is getting one of the most confident recruits in the country.

On National Signing Day, corner back Quincy Wilson made his commitment to Florida official by signing his National Letter of Intent and faxing it to the Gators' football offices. (He was first!) And now we can formally congratulate Quincy on the day he became a Florida Gator.

We can also tell you about Quincy's recruitment, show you his highlights, and project his future impact for the Gators.

Recruitment

Quincy Wilson has been a Gator ever since he committed to Florida in August of 2013. Wilson famously committed with fellow South Florida products Chris Lammons and Ermon Lane, but remains the only one of the three to stay committed to Florida through National Signing Day.

Wilson, a four-star prospect, held offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State and Stanford, among others; his offer sheet was one of the longest in the nation, thanks to his (and his father's) superb handling of his recruitment.

Wilson played his high school football at University School in Davie, Florida, and is the son of former Miami player Chad Wilson — but the 'Canes never came calling like Florida did, and so Quincy is a Gator.

Highlights

Future Impact

Quincy WIlson can make an immediate impact on the Florida roster, just not in the defensive backfield. The secondary Florida already has is too deep and talented for the four-star to come in and expect to contribute immediately, but I expect Wilson to get a lot of time on special teams and in the return game as a physical, eager coverage man. Over time, once he gets faster and stronger, Wilson can make an impact at either cornerback or safety.
