Wilson Considering Visit Options

FOX Sports NEXT caught up with Culver City (Calif.) receiver Julius Wilson to get the latest on his senior season, official visit plans, and more...

Though Culver City (Calif.) suffered a 31-7 loss to La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat, receiver Julius Wilson showed just why he holds a good number of offers.

A seven-point game at the half, Bishop Amat managed to score three touchdowns and a field goal throughout the last two quarters to secure the win. Wilson, however, kept up the fight on the field until the clock ran out.

"It was definitely a close game in the beginning. We had them, but we made a lot of little mistakes going down the field. We had a lot of fumbles, so we have to capitalize better. That's all it is.

"Moving forward, we are just going to keep our heads high. We're going to go to league, get a nice set in the playoffs and we'll be straight," he said.

Though he's now more of a highly-touted prospect than he was last season, Wilson feels no added pressure on the field.

"I play for all my boys out here. Some of them are fortunate to have scholarships, and I want that for all my teammates," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound prospect, whose offers include California, Illinois, Nebraska, San Diego State, Washington, and Washington State, says he feels blessed to have the opportunity of receiving a scholarship.

"I've been working really hard. It's for my mom. It means a lot to me," he said.

Though no plans are set, Wilson is starting to consider his options and make decisions as to where he will be taking an official visit.

"I want to take official visits to maybe San Diego State, Washington, Washington State. I'm thinking about taking a visit to California. I kind of want to keep it West. I definitely want to consider my surroundings. My mom is always going to stress the grades. Those two things are what I'm looking for in a school," he said.

One thing Wilson is sure of is that he will take his time with his decision.

"I don't know when I'll make my decision. I think it's going to go down to the wire, definitely" he said.

Wilson, who also plays on special teams as a punt returner, says his best quality at receiver is "what [he] can do with the ball in [his] hands. Maybe not my routes, but definitely yards after catch."
