Isaiah Wilson, a 5-star offensive tackle from New York, released a listing of his Top 8 via his Twitter account Thursday. The junior told DawgNation earlier this year that he grew up a UGA fan.
His stacked Top 8 reflects that he still holds the program in high regard. The 6-foot-7, 322-pounder listed UGA, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State and Rutgers.
Wilson is ranked as the nation’s No. 5 offensive tackle and the No. 21 overall prospect for the Class of 2017. He plays for Poly Prep Country Day in Brooklyn and his interest is a positive indicator of the reach of the UGA football program.
Despite being more than 1,000 miles from UGA, he got to know the team by watching games on television with his father. He even called UGA a “childhood favorite” and said that location would not be an issue that affects his college decision.
