ESPN Recruiting Insider Predicts National Signing Day "Stunner"

An ESPN recruiting insider is predicting a surprise commitment.

Marvin Wilson, the No. 1 defensive tackle and top uncommitted recruit in the 2017 class, is set to announce his decision tomorrow, National Signing Day.

The 6-foot-4, 329-pound prospect out of Texas will be deciding between Florida State, LSU, Ohio State and Oklahoma.

LSU is widely expected to be the choice. On 247Sports' "Crystal Ball," the Tigers have 71 percent of the predictions.

ESPN recruiting insider Jeremy Crabtree, though, is predicting a "stunner."

The national consensus is that five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson will go to LSU, and it's hard to discount the lure of the Bayou Bengals and Ed Orgeron to any top defensive lineman.

But Wilson, the fourth-ranked player in the ESPN 300, from Houston, will pull a signing day surprise and ink with Florida State, largely because of the recruiting abilities of Tim Brewster and Odell Haggins.

Brewster, the Noles' ace recruiter, has done very well over the years in Houston, and Wilson would be Brewster's biggest get since he convinced Vince Young to come to Texas when he was an assistant in Austin.

Wilson is set to announce his choice at 4 p.m. E.T. on ESPN2.
