6-9 Langston Wilson of Georgia Highlands JC in Rome, GA remains very busy with his recruiting as he also goes thru preparations for the upcoming season. He did a Zoom session with Alabama coaches Wednesday, one of numerous zooms and virtual visits he’s had with coaching staffs in pursuit of him. That would include USC with remains very much in the mix with assistant coach Will Bailey leading the effort.
“I’ve been talking to Coach Bailey pretty consistently and I’ll text Coach (Frank) Martin here and there,” Wilson said. “We have the type of relationship we don’t have to talk every single day. We know where we stand with each other and I’m comfortable with them and that program. I’ve been talking to every school pretty consistently. A lot of people have started to ramp up their recruiting because they’ve finished up their recruiting for their other classes. A lot of schools have been in contact more as more kids are making their decisions. A lot of schools have been ramping up their recruiting and things like that.”
Along with USC and Alabama, Wilson said some of the other schools picking up their recruiting efforts with him are Oregon, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Murray State and Kansas.
One advantage for the Gamecocks with Wilson is his longstanding relationship with Bailey which dates back to when Bailey was at Saint Louis and first started recruiting him. Wilson said their conversations have moved beyond basketball and the normal recruiting pitches.
“When we talk it’s not so much about basketball but life stuff,” Wilson said. “He’ll ask how my development is going and what I’m doing and how everything is going. Not anything really new.”
Wilson said he has not yet formulated a list of favorites, and he’s not yet decided if he’ll sign in November or wait until the spring.
