Scout.com's Donald "Big Dog" Forbes had the following conversation with Kyle Wilson Sunday evening.

Scout.com- "Hi Kyle, have you made a decision?"
KW- "Yes, Boise State."

Scout.com- "When did you make the decision?"
KW- "Last week, maybe Tuesday"

Scout.com- "What made your decision?"
KW- "I was their first option, no other colleges really showed that interest and at this point if they did I would not be their top option."

Scout.com- "What position did they recruit you to play?"
KW- "Rover."

Scout.com- "How do you feel about being that far away from home?"
KW- "I felt the most comfortable there and I have friends in California."

Scout.com- "Do you plan to play as a freshmen or do you want to redshirt?"
KW- "Play."

Scout.com- "Did the staff make any mention of whether or not they intend on having you play?"
KW- "Prepare to play and after I get there they will decide."

Scout.com- "Can I assume that you have made the decision to play defense?"
KW- "Somewhat, but I can play both there."

Scout.com- "What want to want to say to the BSU fans?"
KW- "They haven't seen anything like me, and I'm going to show 'em how we ball on the east."

Scout.com- "Thank you for the interview. Good Luck"

Wilson is a versatile player with speed, who plays WR, RB, KR and DB. On the field he runs a low 4.4 /  high 4.3.  On the track, he runs the 100M in 10.8 and the 200M in 22.2. In college, he would like to play DB. His versatility has also attracted the attention of Ohio State. Since his teammate committed to the school, they noticed him on the film and requested film.  He also received interest from Iowa, West Virginia, Rutgers, North Carolina State, North Carolina.  Wilson flew out to Boise on December 17th and left impressed.  He said later that he liked the fact that Boise State is "established and football is everything out there."

He had originally said he'd wait until LOI day to announce his decision, but decided that he was done with all his visits and committed to the Broncos.  Wilson is eerily similar in size and talent to Bronco Senior Chris Carr, and it's no surprise that he's slated to fight for playing time in the position Carr is leaving.

Wilson was an all-area selection as a Junior, during his Junior campaign, Wilson had four interceptions and returned one for a TD.  As a Kick Returner, he averaged better than 25 yards-per-kickoff return and ran back two punts for touchdowns. Good enough to be named to the All-Area team as a return specialist as well.  Wilson was also named the MVP of the State Championship game.

As a Senior, Wilson surpassed his awesome Junior season, leading his team to an undefeated season, culminating in his being named 1st team All State as a wideout. 

Wilson brings his speed and return abilities to Boise State to improve an already talented Defensive Backfield. 
Welcome to Boise State Kyle!
