"I'm ... happy about my decision," said Cedrick Wilson Jr, the son of former NFL receiver Cedrick Wilson. "It's where I wanted to be. (I'm) glad that the process is over and now I just have to work out a little and be ready for spring."
Wilson, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound receiver from Coffeyville Community College (Kan.), committed to the Broncos on Nov. 24, but was offered by Virginia Tech two weeks later. He visited Blacksburg and the Hokies over the weekend, but decided to stick with the Broncos.
"I liked everything equal with each school," Wilson said. "I just felt Boise was more of a home for me."
Over the course of a couple months, Wilson went from knowing little about Boise State to signing with the Broncos as a mid-year recruit and filling a big need on the team. He credits the coaching staff, specifically receivers coach Junior Adams, offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz and defensive backs coach Julius Brown, for their honesty and work while recruiting him.
"I didn't know much about Boise besides the blue field," Wilson said. "But as I started talking to the coaches and looking up stats I saw it was a winning program. I built amazing relationships with the coaches. Now I can't wait to play for them."
As a prep players in Memphis, Wilson played quarterback at White Station High School. He finished without a single Divison I offer. He went the junior college route and was promptly switched to receiver. The fit was natural and Wilson excelled.
"This will be going into my third season as a wide receiver and I just want to be the best that I can," he said. "That's what drives me."
What kind of player is Boise State getting?
"A role model and a hard worker," Wilson said.
