Isaiah Wilson is the state of New York’s No. 1 prospect.
Wilson, a 5-star offensive tackle from Brooklyn, N.Y., told the AJC that he picked up an offer from UGA last week. He said UGA offensive line coach Rob Sale was the one to offer him.
With Wilson living almost 1,000 miles away from Athens, does UGA have a good chance at signing him?
“UGA was always a childhood favorite of mine, and how far I am (from home) doesn’t matter to me,” Wilson told the AJC. “I just want the best fit.”
So how does a kid from Brooklyn grow up to like the Bulldogs? Wilson says he and his dad grew up watching UGA games on TV and he just grew an affinity toward the Bulldogs.
Wilson plans on making a trip to his childhood favorite school this spring.
The nation’s No. 5 offensive tackle for 2017 reports around 20 offers from programs like Alabama, Auburn and Ohio State.
At this time in his recruitment, he has not narrowed down his list and says he has no leaders.
According to his 247Sports Crystal Ball, 67 percent of recruiting analysts project him to stay in the Northeast and sign with Rutgers.
