    DOES HE KNOW WHERE HE'S GOING?

    Hillsborough, North Carolina, Orange four-star linebacker Payton Wilson announced on Twitter on Sunday evening he plans to make his college decision on May 1.

    The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Wilson is considered the fourth-best outside linebacker and No. 107 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He recently unveiled a Top 7 of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech.

    Wilson, who has recorded 163 tackles, 14 sacks and one interception in his two-year varsity career with the Panthers, will make his first trip to Columbus on April 1. You'd assume he'd have a destination in mind before setting a commitment date, which doesn't bode well for Ohio State, however.

    Payton Wilson visit talk, Top Four coming
    While the Buckeyes top target at linebacker, Toledo (Ohio) 4-star Dallas Gant is visiting Michigan today, Ohio State finished up a visit with North Carolina 4-star linebacker Payton Wilson.

    The trip kicked off on Friday morning and he spent two full days with the Ohio State coaching staff and team, getting a comprehensive look at what being a Buckeyes linebacker entails. Though he’s expected to make his college choice on May 1, there’s at least some chance that Wilson will push that back as he takes his time to make sure of his choice.

    But…

    He’s almost certain to take another visit to Clemson, one of the schools believed to be his favorites (along with North Carolina) and that kind of trip can often help cement a feeling about a school, especially after seeing other top contenders.


    So, here’s what’s next: a “Top 4” being released by Wilson and then more visits. The May 1 “deadline” is a soft deadline and the Buckeyes are definitely in the mix.

    SO YOU'RE SAYING THERE'S A CHANCE?

    Hillsborough, North Carolina, Orange four-star linebacker Payton Wilson, meanwhile, made his first-ever trip to Ohio State this past weekend.

    The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Wilson plans to make his college decision on May 1, but there's a feeling within the program that he'll push it back following his trip to Columbus. That's certainly good news, as he also plans to narrow his list of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech down to four before that date.

    The issue, however, is that even if the Buckeyes make the cut for Wilson — the fourth-best outside linebacker and No. 107 prospect overall in the Class of 2018 — they'll presumably still be looking up at the Tar Heels and Tigers. While his interest in Ohio State is sincere, his relationship with Clemson and North Carolina goes back quite a while.

    Therefore, the Buckeyes had a lot of ground to make up in a short period of time. If he returns to either of the aforementioned schools in the coming weeks, look for that program to be his choice.
