Divaad Wilson is a 6 foot 185 lb cornerback from Monsignor Pace High School in Miami, Fl. Wilson is currently rated four stars by Rivals but plays a lot higher than his current rating. Today the spotlight is on Wilson, a member of the Gators #AllBite18 class.
Wilson was introduced into the sport of football by his father at the age of four. Wilson hasn’t looked backed since, making plays every step of the way. Looking at Wilson’s tape, you can easily spot how aggressive he is.
Wilson’s size mirrors that of Teez Tabor coming out of High School. But Wilson plays much more physical than Tabor did. I love Wilson in press coverage, jamming the receivers at the line, but Wilson can also play off coverage. Wilson can really break quickly on the ball and attacks the target well.
Wilson currently holds eight offers from D-1 schools.
“I currently have eight offers right now,” Wilson said. “Louisville, Florida, Vanderbilt, Rutgers, UCF,USF, Toledo and Syracuse.”
While Wilson committed to the Gators on February 3rd of this year, a couple teams are still coming hard after him.
“There is a few schools that are still coming after me hard, like Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Toledo,” Wilson said.
Wilson chose to commit to Florida because of it’s history of turning out NFL caliber defensive backs.
“Florida has a good background and good history of putting defensive backs into the league,” Wilson said. “It’s DBU.”
Wilson’s commitment means a lot but he still plans on taking official visits to other schools.
“I will definitely take an official to Florida,” Wilson said. “I will also probably visit Toledo, Louisville, Syracuse and Vanderbilt.”
Wilson has a message for potential Gator recruits that are on the fence about committing to Florida.
“There’s no place like home,” Wilson said. “The atmosphere in the Swamp, feels like home.”
But it’s not just the atmosphere that made Wilson commit to the Gators.
“I have to have a school with good academics,” Wilson said. “I also need to be able to bond with the coaching staff.”
Wilson wants to major in something involving computers in College.
When Wilson isn’t giving quarterbacks fits on the field, you can find him joking around with his friends, dancing or playing Call of Duty. So yes, Gator Nation, there is an opportunity that Wilson will show off his dance move in the Swamp very soon.
We want to thank Wilson for his time speaking with us and we wish him the best of luck moving forward.
