Wilson, a native of The Bronx and an attendee at the Brewster Academy, had been pursued by a variety of high-major programs, but most notably so by the Red Storm and the UConn Huskies. In the end, it’s Chris Mullin who edges Kevin Ollie out for the top-flight recruit in Wilson, giving the program a much-needed boost. Wilson made the announcement of his commitment on Saturday evening.
Sidney Wilson ranks as a Top 100 recruit via 247Sports Composite. The 6-foot-6, 170-pound small forward is 19th at his position and fourth in the state of New Hampshire. Only Makai Ashton-Langford (Providence Friars), Kimani Lawrence (Arizona State Sun Devils) and Thomas Allen (Nebraska Cornhuskers) rank higher than Wilson in the state of New Hampshire, with two of the three - Ashton-Langford and Allen - being fellow Brewster Academy attendees.
He’s the one and only member of St. John’s’ 2017 class.
