TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - The Lincoln High School boys basketball team reached unprecedented heights over the past two seasons. The Trojans reached their first Final Four a year ago, and this season, finished State Runners-up. Leading the way? Dwight Wilson, and on Friday, Wilson signed on the dotted line to play at the next level.

The big man made things official with James Madison University, a Division I school in Virginia. Wilson spent three seasons as a Trojan, scoring over 1500 points and grabbing over a thousand rebounds, and he said he hopes to continue that success at the next level with the Dukes.

"I've been dreaming about this moment since I was a kid, to be able to play after high school and continue to develop as a player," he said Friday. "It's a beautiful campus, beautiful place. People are real nice, they have good food. It really felt like home, I feel real good about it."

Wilson said he plans on studying sport management.
