Jerome's Wilson verbals to Georgia Tech
The same night that he got a scholarship offer from Georgia Tech, Dublin Jerome junior running back Cameron Wilson verbally committed to play football for the Ramblin Wreck.
Wilson is a 6-foot, 205-pounder who is the younger brother of senior Cameron Wilson, an Iowa signee in February.
After recently visiting Georgia Tech, Wilson waited for an offer that finally came May 15.
"It's a good football program with a great coach," Wilson said.
Georgia Tech went 8-5 last fall and has gone 34-19 in four seasons with Bowl appearances each year under coach Paul Johnson. The Ramblin Wreck run a triple-option spread offense, and Wilson said he's not sure whether he'll be more of a tailback, called an A-back, or a fullback, referred to as a B-back in their offense.
Last season, Wilson rushed for 1,345 yards and 16 touchdowns on 235 carries and made first-team all-OCC-Cardinal Division and second-team all-district in Division I. The Celtics got off to an 0-3 start and finished 4-6 last season, running what Wilson calls a "jumbo" offense that is a mix of the spread and I-formation.
"I knew (Georgia Tech) was the place for me as soon as I visited there a while ago," Wilson said.
Wilson, who is considered a three-star prospect by Rivals and Scout, also had offers from Air Force, Boston College, Ohio University and Purdue.
