Wilson Commits to ASU

It was a true Pac-12 South battle for the services of JayJay Wilson and on Monday evening the Valencia (Calif.) athlete chose ASU over the likes of USC, Utah and Colorado.

There may not be a more versatile player in this Arizona State recruiting class. Wilson can line up both at the three-back position which is essentially a tight end with expanded duties, as well as the hybrid safety Spur linebacker position.

“I was talking a lot to Coach Norvell and Coach Long,” Wilson said in a previous interview. “They said watching my high school film they feel there is nothing I can’t do (on offense). So they want to use all my skills and not limit me to one thing. So they want me to play tight end, wide out, slot and run the ball. That’s what I did in high school and that’s what I’m familiar with. I never had just one position.

“In the end I’m a football player and I’ll do whatever the team needs.”

In that interview Wilson was also complimentary of head coach Todd Graham.

“Coach Graham is a character and a funny guy,” Wilson remarked. “I like to see that in a head coach – yes you are serious and you have goals, but at the end of the day he can also put a smile on somebody’s face by being who he is. He’s a great man, he opened up his home to the recruits and that was cool to see.”

“I’m looking at the brotherhood of a school and how they can really help me with my future if football doesn’t work out. So education is important. I couldn’t tell right now if I’m going to take more visits before I decide or not. But most likely I will take another visit.”

We will bring you an interview with ASU’s newest member of the 2015 class as soon as it becomes available.
