Florida State Seminoles defensive tackle Marvin Wilson was one of the most outspoken voices on social justice issues during the offseason.
But he said Thursday that he's not been a part of any conversations like the ones that led to open letters from Big Ten and Pac-12 players demanding reforms and new standards for health, safety, race issues and player compensation.
Wilson, the No. 9 player on Mel Kiper's early 2021 NFL Draft big board, said he never considered sitting out this season, and his focus is entirely local -- both on and off the field.
"I didn't come back to sit out and just go prepare for the league," Wilson said ahead of Florida State's first practice since the COVID-19 outbreak. "That's taking the easy way out. For me, personally, I feel like I have work to do here in Tallahassee."
