Draper Corner Canyon Three-star QB Zachary Wilson Discusses Boise State Commitment

Three-star quarterback Zachary Wilson from Draper (Utah) Corner Canyon breaks down his commitment to Boise State and what made the Broncos the best fit...


With the summer camp circuit in full swing, Zachary Wilson had some travel booked for the rest of this week that he's gladly canceled.

The three-star quarterback from Draper (Utah) Corner Canyon picked up an offer from Boise State early on Sunday and, by Monday night, had announced his commitment to the Broncos, citing the experience he had at camp last week.

"The offense and their style of play was big, and obviously being able to play close to home," Wilson told Scout.com. "Boise loves to win games. It's always been one of the schools I wanted to get out to and one of my favorites for a long time. Obviously it's good at developing quarterbacks.

"After getting out there a few times, it was one of the places I wanted to be at. I knew I would have to get up there and prove myself to them if I wanted to go to school there."

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound prospect impressed at the USC and UCLA camps on Sunday, making strong throw after strong throw and doing well to anticipate where his receivers would be even if he was unfamiliar with many of them. Wilson also threw at Arizona State on Monday before announcing his decision. He scratched trips to North Carolina and South Carolina.

Wilson picked the Broncos over offers from the likes of Fresno StateHawaiiNevada and Rice.

"Boise State is not a school that throws out a lot of offers to kids," Wilson said. "The quarterback position is what they build around, so they want to make sure they get the right person for the job. They told me they liked my personality a lot, how I talk to other players and how I act out on the field, my decision-making stuff and how fluid my throwing motion is."

Wilson completed 67 percent of his pass attempts for 2,708 yards and 20 touchdowns in 10 games as a junior last season, tacking on over 500 rushing yards. He was QB MVP at the Level Up Elite camp in Utah earlier this year.
