The four-star prospect also received offers from Florida State, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, and Tennessee. Auburn and Clemson reached out but ultimately did not give Del Rio-Wilson a scholarship, leaving the QB to join head coach Dan Mullen.
Thanks to a great relationship with Gators offensive coordinator Brian Johnson, UF was able to land a fantastic prospect on National Signing Day.

Replacing Heisman Trophy finalist Kyle Trask will be a tough task, but Florida football fans should be excited about the quarterback pipeline. Alabama, Georgia, and LSU are always going to be competitive SEC rivals, so it is always important that the Gators replenish their recruiting classes.
Carlos Del Rio-Wilson has the chance to do great things in Gainesville, and if the Gators reach the College Football Playoff with him under center, the NFL may be in his future, too.
