Wilson excited to be a Wildcat

Arizona commit Nick Wilson has been hearing from other schools, but is still solid with Arizona. Read on to find out why, his thoughts on a recent in-home, and more.

Fresno (Calif.) Central East running back Nick Wilson recently completed his high school career and while the season didn't finish in an ideal fashion, he left everything on the field.

"We had a good season," Wilson. "We didn't achieve all of our goals, but we went as far as we could. I missed a couple of games and that didn't help, but I still finished with 1,330 yards."

As the crown jewel of the 2014 recruiting class, Wilson has received special attention from the UA coaching staff.

"They're always in contact with me," Wilson said. "In fact, they were just here for an in- home. Coach Magee was just filling me and my parents in on how everything is going and also just seeing how I was doing."

Although Wilson did not discuss his future role at Arizona, he says it is clear how he will be able to step in and contribute.

"We didn't discuss my role too much, but that has been discussed in the past," Wilson said. "Basically, they've always said they want me to come in and play right away.

"They stressed to me that they thought I was physically ready to hit the field and run."

Within the next few weeks, Wilson plans on taking his training to the next level.

"My dad is getting me a personal trainer who is going to push me to be the strongest athlete I can be.

"I feel I'm stronger than most high school players but the college football level is going to be a big step up."

Wilson figures to make a smooth transition, as he already has his major planned out.

"I'm going to major in criminal justice," he said. "I come from that background and it's something I've been interested in.

"I'm excited to play football, but I plan on going all out on the grades as well."
