Lindsey Wilson recruited Devonta Alcorn the earliest and hardest.
And that’s why the Danville senior has committed to the school in Columbia and will sign with the Raiders on Tuesday, the first day of the national signing period.
“I just liked their facilties and everything that they had there when I took my visit,”¿Alcorn said. “I just liked it.”
Alcorn was a two-way player for the Admirals, but the 6-3, 210 pounder was recruited to Lindsey Wilson as a linebacker.
“They liked how physical I was and how hard I worked,”¿said Alcorn, who noted he played “a little bit of everything” on defense for the Admirals.
And while he was a four-year starter at quarterback for the Admirals, Alcorn said he was fine with switching to defense for his college career.
“It didn’t matter what position I played as long as I went to college and got to play somewhere,” he said. “I sent them a quarterback highlight tape, but they said they wanted me as a defensive player.”
Alcorn picked Lindsey Wilson, which is coached by Chris Oliver and went 3-8 last season and 1-5 in the Mid-South Conference, over Kentucky Wesleyan and Virginia School Emory &¿Henry.
“They were closer to home and they had been recruiting me the hardest,”¿Alcorn said of his decision to pick Lindsey Wilson.
