Losing Wilson could be a significant blow to LSU — particularly when it comes to recruiting. It’s no secret Wilson is fantastic in that capacity.
Aside from being a Louisiana native, he’s also had prior coaching experience at multiple high schools within the greater New Orleans area. As such, he’s built considerable relationships all across the area.
Wilson’s also done a fantastic job of coaching up the deep stable of backs LSU has had to its disposal. During his time with LSU, he’s coached the likes of Leonard Fournette, Stevan Ridley, Alfred Blue, and Jeremy Hill.
