Dontravious Wilson was so impressed during his official visit to UCF this weekend that the Buford, Ga., running back nearly committed right in the middle of his trip to Orlando.
But he waited until Sunday to break the news to UCF head coach
George O'Leary, who was quite pleased to land the Knights second running back pledge to the 2013 recruiting class.
"Oh yeah, he was very excited," Wilson said. "He basically just welcomed me aboard and promised me I would get a degree."
Which had to me music to the ears of Wilson's father, who was also along for the trip.
"It went great. The coaches were great, the facilities were very nice and they have a great academic program, so those are the things that stood out the most," Wilson said. "Me and my dad talked it over [Saturday night] and I went ahead and committed early this morning."
Prior to arriving at the UCF campus, Wilson was committed to Western Kentucky and planning to make a visit to USF next weekend, but all that has changed now.
"I won't be going to South Florida next weekend ... I told them I won't be taking anymore visits. I'm done," Wilson said.
Wilson (5-11, 220) rushed for 1,100 yards this past season for Georgia Class AAA state champion, even though he missed five games with a sprained knee.
His host during his UCF visit was Knights tight end Justin Tukes.
"It feels great and I'm very excited," Wilson said. "We took a tour of the school and had some one-on-one with the running backs coach [Danny Barrett] and kind of got to hang with the people from the team.
"I felt like it's the kind of environment that I want to be in for the next four years. Just felt like it's the best thing for me and my family to go ahead and commit to UCF."
Wilson joins Micah Reed of Crestview as the second running back in the class and now UCF has 16 commitments for 2013.
