"The season is going good for us," said Wilson. "We're still undefeated and I feel like I am playing pretty good."

Several college programs have recently expressed some serious interest in the possibility of signing the talented wide out.

"I have offers from Mississippi State, UAB, Louisville and Alabama State in football," said Wilson. "Alabama and Auburn are recruiting me pretty hard too, but they haven't offered me.

"In basketball I have offers from Murray State, UAB, Alabama State, Auburn and a few other schools.

"I have a lot to think about it."

Wilson reports that his most recent football offer, Mississippi State, is a big one.

"Mississippi State is a big time school," said Wilson. "I talked to Coach Brew (Tim Brewster) a few days ago and he told me they were offering me a scholarship.

"He got my mama on the phone and he told her all about everything and that they want me to come there."

The Birmingham standout may get to know a little more about the Bulldogs later this week.

"I have never been over there before," said Wilson of Starkville. "I am supposed to go over there this weekend for the game against Tennessee.

"I don't know yet if I am going for sure because its a late game. It's a two hour drive home. I may have to catch another game later this season, but I am real interested in them."

While the sudden rush of recruiting interest has Wilson excited about his college future, he is in no hurry to make a decision.

"I don't know what I am going to do," said Wilson. "I am going to wait until after the year is over and make my decision.

"I just need some time to look at everything.

"I really want to play basketball and football in college, so if I could do that it I would be happy."
