Wilson Chooses BYU

Despite being recruited by prominent football programs such as LSU and Miami, Spanish Fork tight end Richard Wilson committed on Friday to BYU. Wilson told Total Blue Sports that playing tight end at BYU is special, and is something he is looking forward to.

TBS managing editor Brandon Gurney was on the road when the news of Richard Wilson's commitment to BYU broke. While the G-man wasn't able to get to a computer, he was able to talk to Wilson and and get his thoughts on playing for BYU.

Wilson said that he is excited about committing to BYU, and that he chose the Cougars in large part because of how they use tight ends in their offense.

Indeed, BYU tight end Dennis Pitta is just the latest in a long line of exceptional Cougar tight ends, and he has been racking up some great statistics thus far this season. This did not go unnoticed by Wilson, who said he has been watching Pitta play and likes his role in the offense.

Wilson said he considers it an honor to play for BYU and likes everything BYU has to offer, including its football program and the overall environment at the university.

Wilson said that the BYU coaches were extremely happy to received his commitment, and they wished him well this season.

Wilson is a 6-foot-3-inch, 222-pound tight end at Spanish Fork. In addition to BYU, he had offers from LSU, Miami, Tennessee, Stanford, Utah and Washington.

TBS will have a more detailed article on Wilson's commitment soon.
