Isaiah Wilson tweeted out something earlier this month that hinted he planned to make his decision on Christmas Day.
Christmas is a time for gingerbread houses… Presents under the tree and … Commitments… STAY TUNED 12/25/16 ?

There has been a new development in that timeline.
Rivals.com’s Adam Friedman reported on Monday that Wilson has moved up his decision date. The 5-star OT now will release his decision on Dec. 16.
Wilson just took his final official visit to UGA over the weekend. There is some hope there.
He’s developed a connection with Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman. Wilson also grew up watching the Bulldogs on TV from his home in Brooklyn. UGA 4-star OG commit Netori Johnson told DawgNation this weekend he feels the Bulldogs have a good shot with Wilson.
That’s good. But Georgia coach Kirby Smart and Pittman will still have to win a massive tug-of-war with Alabama and Michigan for his services.
The 6-foot-7, 350-pounder would contend for instant playing time at UGA. But that may not be enough to eventually lead him to Athens.
Did UGA give him a lot to think about? Is he just done with the recruiting process?
Those might be the reasons behind the latest development in his decision. He may already know and the trip to UGA just reinforced something he had in mind.
Wilson is rated as the nation’s No. 7 OT and at No. 32 overall for the Class of 2017.
Georgia now will know very shortly whether its highly-regarded offensive line class is getting another massive upgrade just in time for Christmas.
