All-American Spotlight: Christian Wilson

ORLANDO, Fla. --- Christian Wilson could have played several different positions in the Under Armour All-American game Saturday. However, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound athlete will suit up at the very familiar position.

"I'm just the usual linebacker that blitzes," Wilson said. "We can't do too much on defense because [of the rules]. The only position that can blitz is weakside linebacker and that's me."

For McKees Rocks (Pa.) Montour, Wilson starred at linebacker, as well as running back. He ended his senior season with 103 tackles, ten sacks, and an interception.

Therefore, Wilson is finding no difficulty in fitting into Team Undeniable's linebacking unit.

"I'm doing fine," Wilson said. "I know everybody up here is good. We'll see what happens Saturday."

Recently, Wilson, a Michigan pledge, received his first real opportunity to speak to newly hired Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez.

"He just basically told me he's going to use me the same way as I was used in high school [at running back]," Wilson said. "Same spread offense."

Now, Wilson is looking forward to grilling Calvin Magee, Michigan's offensive coordinator-to-be, who served the same role under Rodriguez at West Virginia.

"I want to talk about the offense," Wilson said. "I saw him [calling plays] in the West Virginia-Oklahoma game and what he said to me he actually did in that game. It kind of proved to me a little bit, but I want to see what he says, too."

Wilson still plans to listen to what other schools have to say and will more than likely take official visits elsewhere.

"I think I'm going to visit [UNC]," Wilson said. "They're a school that I like. They're kind of like a program that I had at my high school – coming up and everything like that."

Additionally, Wilson said he will take official visits to Boston College and Michigan State.
