"Really just a place that I can see myself playing at for four years and enjoying myself while getting a good education," Wilson said. "I also want to play highly competitive D-1 football, which Northwestern and the Big Ten definitely offers."
Wilson, a 6-foot, 185-pound receiver, also holds an offer from New Mexico. He visited Northwestern at the end of March, where he stayed overnight, toured campus and met with head coach Pat Fitzgerald, a frequent visitor in Houston.
"Coach Fitzgerald explained the mentor system that they have there and I was really impressed by it," said Wilson. "I also enjoyed the tour that I got of the campus and athletic facilities."
Throughout his recruitment, Wilson has built a close relationship with Northwestern coaches, then was able to bond with Wildcat players during his visit.
"After coming up and seeing the school and meeting some of they guys, I can definitely see myself playing there," Wilson said.
Kinkaid High School begins spring football practice this week and Wilson is expecting to host Northwestern coaches. He could make a decision shortly afterwards.
"I think I'm really just going to see how this week of spring football goes," he said. "Northwestern is definitely among my top schools that I'll consider in the end."
