During the offseason, Marvin Wilson, Florida’s defense strategy, was one of the most outspoken voices on social justice issues.
But he said on Thursday that he did not participate in any dialogue, such as the dialogue that led to the Open Letter of Big Ten and Pac-12 players requesting reforms and proposing new standards on health, safety, racial issues and player compensation.
Wilson is the 9th player in the NFL draft board by Mel Kiper in early 2021. He said that he has never considered his performance this season, and his focus is entirely Local, both on and off the court.
Wilson said before his first Florida game during the coronavirus pandemic: “I didn’t come back and sit down to prepare for the league.”
Wilson publicly stated in June that Florida coach Mike Norvell caused a sensation after misrepresenting the meeting between coach and player. George Floyd was killed in police custody. . Wilson posted on Twitter that the team will withdraw from voluntary training until the situation is resolved. Knollville later met with the players to clarify the atmosphere and thanked Wilson for the attention.
Since then, Wilson has worked hard to establish his own charitable foundation called Marvin’s Movement. He said that the purpose of the foundation is to develop financial literacy and other community service projects with young people.
Wilson said he was satisfied with Florida State University’s safety procedures throughout voluntary exercise, including routine testing, screening and social distancing. He said that the new helmet with a special protective mask is uncomfortable, but players still have to continue to wear it.
Wilson said: “They actually overemphasize everything.”
Wilson said that he did not discuss with his family whether to opt out of the season and other potential first-round picks, including Penn State’s Mika Parsons, Minnesota’s Rashod Bateman and Virginia Caleb Farley of the Polytechnic University.
Wilson said: “Finally return to the team and train in the gym.” “When we work hard, I want to quit at the last minute. This is disrespectful. [to my teammates]”.
