Torrian Wilson is one of the most wanted offensive linemen in the country, but he isn't as concerned with recruiting as he is making himself and his team better. The behemoth linemen discussed with TR the latest with his recruitment, his game, and his team.

Wilson isn’t necessarily too fond of the recruiting process, but admitted that there are some schools he particularly likes, and plans to make visits to.

“Recruiting is going real crazy and it’s very hectic, but I’m not really focusing on that right now, I’m just ready to get the season started,” Wilson said. “Right now I’m considering Miami, Stanford, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida International, UCLA, Michigan, and Georgia Tech. Nobody is really standing out though, everybody is even,”

“I’m planning on doing visits in August, I’m going to Stanford, Tennessee, and Michigan right now is all I’ve decided.”

Living in South Florida, being a fan of Miami came natural to Wilson, but also followed another team, one a little north of Miami.

“My favorite teams growing up were Michigan and Miami because Michigan, I just like the big house and they were a powerhouse and Miami is just the hometown school.” Wilson offered.

Wilson, along with his Miami Northwestern teammates, are especially excited to get back on the field, and are always striving to get better.

“We went 13-2. Everyone is just coming together and working hard and everybody is ready to get the season started and go full speed.” The 6’4, 290 pounder said.

“My big strength is run blocking, but I would say I need to improve on my pass blocking skills, they should be on point by this time next year and I will have to work real hard and those should be on point next year.”

Wilson, who plans to play in the 2010 Under Armour All-American game, is not sure when he is going to make his commitment, but knows what the main factors may or may not be when he does have to make his final decision.

“Academics of the school, and the relationship I have with the coaches.” He said. “Distance won’t be a factor."

Wilson currently comes in at #167 in ThaRinger.com’s Top 300 for the Class of 2010.
