Wilson secures spot at this summer's IMG Academy ALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp

Quarterback Evan Wilson

Joining the football camp at IMG Academy and the ALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp is QB Evan Wilson from Out-of-Door Academy in Sarasota, Florida.

Under the direction of the IMG Academy performance staff, Wilson has participated in strength training, speed development, and vision and mental conditioning on his path to become a top prospect for the recruiting class of 2013.

In combination with his performance training, Wilson received position-specific training led by coach Chris Weinke and the football staff at IMG Academy. Since his arrival at IMG Academy, the right-hander has worked tirelessly to improve his throwing motion. In these last few months, Wilson has drastically improved his follow-through, allowing him to be more accurate in both and short passes. However, in order to improve his overall performance, Coach Weinke emphasized the importance of perfecting his footwork.

“Having rhythm is crucial in football because it's played from the ground up,” Wilson said. “So if your footwork isn't good, nothing else will be either.”

Since the conclusion of his season, Wilson has grown over 2 inches and added 15 pounds to his stature. Currently standing at 6'2” and 180-pounds, the quarterback has seen his stock skyrocket since November.

This summer, Wilson attended football camps at TCU, Florida, Furman, Tulane, and Florida International University as well as an Ivy League camp held in Florida.

Following his performance during his past two seasons as starting QB, his training at IMG and the camps this summer, Wilson has earned looks from Tulane, Furman, Dartmouth, and Vanderbilt. Wilson threw for a total of 2000 yards last year and received team MVP as well as All-Area honorable mention.

Wilson will participate in the ALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp July 27th - 29th (Friday thru Sunday), which invites elite-performing high school football players to participate in three days of position-specific drills, structured 7-on-7/11-on-11 scrimmages and classroom education focused on the installation of basic schemes and concepts taught at the next level to prepare athletes for a future in football.
