Syracuse Football Recruiting: Illinois Offers Thomas Wilson

On Tuesday, the Illinois Fighting Illini extended an offer to 2014 athlete Thomas Wilson. Wilson has an 86 rating and is ranked 633rd on 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings. He also received an offer from the Syracuse Orange on Tuesday as well.

The Georgia recruit has received offers from the Charlotte 49ers, Cincinnati Bearcats, East Carolina Pirates, Georgia State Panthers, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Missouri Tigers, South Florida Bulls, South Miss Golden Eagles, Syracuse Orange, Tennessee Volunteers, West Virginia Mountaineers, and Wisconsin Badgers.

According to 247 Sports, Wilson’s best skills are his athleticism, versatility, and ball skills. After watching his film from this past season, his #1 skill has to be his versatility.

Wilson can play running back, defensive back, or returner. He can also chuck the football down field. He also uses his athleticism to make very nice plays. At first, I thought he was just a big hitting DB, but upon watching more I saw that Thomas has the ability to use his athleticism to twist his body and make some nice interceptions.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 73rd in the state of Georgia and 71st among athletes by 247Sports.
