Florida football recruiting is starting to ramp up its offers in the 2025 class and is trying to set up its big board early.
We’ve talked about the potential for an elite in-state class in the 2025 cycle, and now Billy Napier has offered another talented Florida prospect.
The Gators recently offered Dallas Wilson, a 4-star wide receiver out of Tampa who’s currently committed to Oregon.
As his recruiting process begins to heat up, he’ll skyrocket up the Gators’ board and become a high-priority target.
Florida football recruiting: Size and speed all over
The first thing that stands out about Wilson on his tape is how much bigger he is than everybody else out wide. He’s 6’3”-180, which is a great height for a wideout, and he’ll add more mass to his frame in the coming years.
Once you get over how big he is, you see how well he moves too.
Tampa Bay Tech uses him a lot in their offense and for good reason. On short pop passes, he’s hard to take down and is able to stride through the defense and create a big play.
On deep balls, he simply outruns the guy guarding him and can use his height and length to make a catch over the top of any defender who can stay with him.
And on special teams he shows elite burst and acceleration, creating big plays where it seemed like nothing was happening.
In his sophomore year, he totaled 40 catches for 875 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s a top-75 player nationally and the 13th-best wideout per On3’s Industry Ranking, but I expect that to just improve as time goes on.
Dallas committed to Oregon in January of this year, but holding onto a commitment for three years is a tough task. Especially for a Florida kid who can see what Napier is doing at UF.
Expect the Gators to get heavily involved here, and hopefully flip him from the Ducks.
