Elite five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson from Houston, TX (Episcopal High School) will visit LSU this weekend for the Florida game, according to SEC Country.

This is Wilson’s first trip to Tiger Stadium since the spring when he met with former coach Les Miles and then-defensive line coach Ed Orgeron, his primary recruiter. Since Orgeron took over for Miles as LSU’s interim coach, he has visited Wilson for a Friday night game in late October and has consistently attempted to lure him on campus for a visit.

Wilson has already taken official visits to Oklahoma and Florida State, and is scheduled to also officially visit Ohio State. LSU remains in contention for one of Wilson’s final official visits, which could put the Tigers in an even stronger position with the nation’s top defensive tackle leading into his decision on National Signing Day.
Wilson is the rated No. 1 defensive tackle in the country by ESPN, 247 Sports and Rivals.

Rivals has Wilson as the No. 2 overall player for the class of 2017.

We need this big behemoth and more like him on both sides of the ball. Coach O. has stated getting bigger and stronger is a top priority and I fully agree. That's the way to beat Bama. Don't worry about the coaching uncertainty. Alleva said he will name a coach either the end of November or the first of December. That's only a couple of weeks away. We'll be fine on recruiting. Geaux Coach O!

Thought we weren't allowed to host since this is an "away game"?

Three things working for us with him. He took a visit to Florida State, which means he obviously respects what Jimbo is doing there. Second, Coach O will still push for him to come to LSU, regardless of Coach O's future with the team. Three...Aranda...may be the best DC in the nation.
