McWilson is a 4-star safety from Youngstown, Ohio and may have Lexington, Kentucky in his sights as a college destination. Today, he posted on his Twitter account that he was no longer committed to Nebraska. Last night, a lot of media outlets already had McWilson committing to the ‘Cats until he shot down the rumor. He then later posted tweets like “SEC or Big 10″, and “Stoops or Pelini”. McWilson is 6’0”, 195 lbs., Rivals has him ranked #10 in his state and #18 at his position in the class.
Before his commitment to Nebraska, McWilson had offers from West Virginia, Michigan State, and Louisville among others. Will Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini tell another guy “Good luck kid, you’re going to need it.” after losing the kid to another school? I would expect McWilson to be very close to pulling the trigger for Kentucky.
