The hot rumor from this past week was that Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely offensive lineman Ronnie Wilson had committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes while camping in Columbus. This morning Wilson brought InsidetheGators.net up to speed on where he currently stands in the recruiting process.
"That's nothing - It's a bad rumor. No I haven't made a commitment to them (Ohio State) or anyone else. They had a great camp up there and I won all my one-on-one drills," said Wilson. "I liked the camp at Florida better. I won the run-blocking award there. It was better because we were in pads. I like it when it gets physical."
In a week he'll have another chance to get 'physical' when he and his teammates attend the North Carolina State camp. Actually they are attending a couple of others as well - Wake Forrest and Duke - but those are 7-on-7 camps in which he won't participate.
"Those schools are recruiting me so I thought I would go and look at them while my team is playing in the camp."
Though he hasn't committed to the Buckeyes, he said they are in his top five.
"Florida, Miami and Ohio State are my three top teams. I like Pittsburgh and NC State too."
He has offers from all but Miami.
The 6-foot-4, 330 pound Wilson then went on to talk a little more about the teams.
"Miami isn't taking many linemen this time around. They told me I'm still on the board to get offered it depends on a couple of things. Florida and Ohio State have both already offered me and told me straight up they want me at their schools. They said that they think I can play for them next year depending on how well I learn the offense and how hard I work."
