Wilson has two set

One of the most popular games on Nebraska's schedule for the 2010 season has to be Texas. The two teams will probably be top 10, potentially top 5, and after the Big 12 title game last year it's going to be a grudge match to some extent for Nebraska. Many of the Nebraska commitments are saying that will be their official visit, but this California DE says he'll be there too.

DeVante Wilson, a 6-foot-3 and 215-pound pass-rushing, defensive end from Corona (Calif.) has yet to start his season. It's coming up though and after a busy summer.

"Our season opener is on September 10," Wilson said. "The summer went well. I took a couple of unofficial visits to Oregon, UCLA and USC."

Wilson wants to see improvement in the win-loss column from his team. He has some high goals considering how Corona finished last year, but he sees a difference a year has made.

"I am ready to lead my team to a better season than last year and make it to CIF and the playoffs. We were 2-8 last year. To get to CIF you need to be around .500.

"I see a lot of improvement from last year's team to this year. We have a lot more discipline. We have a few new coaches that have been helping us out. We are looking good."

There are two official visits set up for Wilson who will see a PAC 10 team a little later this month and will head to see one of the most anticipated Big 12 games of the year.

"I have two official visits set up. I go to Arizona on September 25th and I go to Nebraska for the Texas game on October 16th. That will be a big game."

Wilson hasn't heard a lot about Lincoln on game day so he's coming in just wanting to see how things are. Coming from California he is interested to feel the difference in climate in Nebraska.

"I really just want to get a feel for the place. I am interested to see how the weather is. That is a big question for me coming from California. I want to take it all in."

As a junior, Wilson earned All-Big VIII honors after recording 84 tackles. Wilson is also holding offers from Colorado, Colorado State, San Jose State, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
