Big time talent. If he gets those grades right will end up being heavily recruited.

Default Re: 2015 - Antoine Wilder

What type of player is Wilder, in his own words?
"I'm a man-to-man type of guy," Wilder says. "I need to work on my off-man. I love bltizing. I'm a physical safety. I love catching people coming across the middle. That's my type of game. I'm like an Earl Thomas, Ed Reed-type of guy."
While the attention that the schools show will ultimately play a major part in his recruitment, there are five programs Wilder has strong interest in early on. He gave his thoughts on why he likes each.
Georgia: "Probably because it's close to home. Coach (Bryan McClendon is a) good coach and good friend of ours. My mom loves Georgia. She's sold. She wants to sign."
Miami: "Just the history, the background, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, just what they've done. I really like the city."
South Carolina: "Coach (Grady) Brown and Coach (Lorenzo) Ward -- I love those two guys right there. Coach Brown, he loves me, I've got to go to camp June 13. They're definitely top five. My boy Arden (Key), he loves it."

Looks like UGA is the favorite from those comments but (FWIW) Kornblut is saying Gamecocks could land a commitment should we make an offer today.

Yea, but i doubt he gets a UGA offer at this point, we are the only big name school showing interest.

Correct.
It will be interesting to see how having Key as a pass rusher will effect Wilder's stats...maybe get some more INT opportunities.

Correct...Key said he was going to recruit for USC, and apparently this is the 1st one. Another under-the-radar prospect...

No. He was injured nearly all last season.
I have heard some schools haven't jumped on him yet because he is a question mark in the classroom though.
But who knows, this commitment could give him the motiviation to get his grades in order.

Chris Clark just wrote this on a follow up to his commitment.

Wilder comes from a program that is still relatively new and just got his academic situation straight recently which has contributed to him being under the radar.

I thought that was Jalen Henry who was injured most of last season (broken foot) which affected his ranking and possibly his offer sheet.

Highlight video.
http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1752962/...ghts/137207375

Noticed one thing...he plays with a swag-like mentality. Good at open field tackles and playing angles.
The only downside, I'd like to see more how he does in ballhawking...granted the team he plays for is using him as a single safety, so hard to ballhawk in that type system.

Also, need to see him work on wrapping up more consistently...right now is more of a hitter and less of a tackler (unlike Jalen Henry's tape).

Looks like a solid prospect...reminds me a little of Brison Williams when he first got here.

Right now, I'd project this guy as a SS.

Looks like a solid prospect to grow in our system.

Wilder gets Gamecock offer and joins class

BY PHIL KORNBLUT

DB Antoine Wilder (5-11 175) of Atlanta became USC's third commitment in two days when he accepted an offer while at camp on Friday. Wilder is a teammate of USC defensive end commitment Arden Key and went into the camp hoping for an offer so that he could join his friend with the Gamecocks.

"It's SEC football," Wilder said. "They only lost two games last year. They are championship bound, and the way the recruiting class is going this year is great."

Wilder plays safety and corner in high school but expects to be a corner with the Gamecocks. And he believes he'll have no trouble fitting into USC's base 4-2-5 scheme.

"They run the same defense we run in high school," he said. "I wouldn't have to change up any scheme. They are aggressive and play a lot of man and that's what I love. I don't like to play conservative. I don't like to back off. I want to go after it."

Last season Wilder had 122 tackles and 2 interceptions.

He's the Gamecocks' 16th commitment for the 2015 class and the second for the secondary
Nice little read on the commitment.
