One of the top running backs in California in the 2014 class is Fresno (Calif.) Central's Nick Wilson (5-10, 195).

On a squad loaded with terrific defensive backs, it was Wilson who was one of the stars of the Grizzlies' offense.

Wilson already has seven offers and plenty more schools are showing interest in him.

"Arizona, California, Boise State, Tennessee, Arkansas, Vanderbilt and Washington State have all offered me," said Wilson. "I'm also hearing from Washington and Arizona State and I've heard a few things from USC and talked to coaches from UCLA."

Wilson said he thinks Washington could be the next to offer him.

"At this point, I'd say probably Washington is closest to offering me," said Wilson. "I'm not in any rush so I'm going to see what other schools offer me before I make a decision."

Wilson had teammates sign with Oklahoma, UCLA and New Mexico State and had one teammate commit to USC this week, and another with offers from around the country.

"It's pretty cool having so many guys on our team going through the recruiting process," said Wilson. "I talk with Hatari (Byrd) and L.J. (Moore) and Johnny (Johnson) now and then about it."

With a handful of offers and new interest coming daily, Wilson remains open-minded about the process.

"I'm kind of like on neutral with schools right now," said Wilson. "I want to check out some schools. I'm not sure if I'll go to any camps because I'm in track season, so I probably won't end up doing too much, but I may go to the Nike Camp in Oakland."

Wilson has visited Boise State and Arizona already unofficially and is headed to Cal's Junior Day this weekend.

Academically, he has a 3.1 and scored an 1170 on the SAT, with plans to take it again this spring.
