San Clemente (Calif.) quarterback Travis Wilson is one of the Southland's top passers in the 2012 class, and the 6-6, 211-pounder has two offers under his belt with more schools keeping close watch.

Wilson picked up his first two offers on Friday when Utah and Washington offered the Scout 2012 Watch Lister.

"I've been talking to Colorado and Oregon State, so they are showing some interest," said Wilson of his most recent interest. "Notre Dame, Oregon, Colorado, Oklahoma, USC, UCLA and Boston College have all been talking with me.

Wilson said his favorite school is Notre Dame and he'd love to get an offer from the Irish, but he maintains he's very wide open.

"Notre Dame is the top one, but I'd still consider other offers," said Wilson.

Wilson said he anticipated more offers coming during the spring.

"A lot of schools came by in the fall and the winter but a lot want to see me throw a little bit," said Wilson.

Wilson had big shoes to fill for the Tritons, taking over the starting duties from Chase Rettig, who started this fall as a true freshman at Boston College. And Rettig is giving him a helping hand.

"Chase told me that he showed his coaches my film and that they were impressed," said Wilson. "It's cool that he's supporting me like that."

Wilson attended games at both USC and UCLA this past fall and plans to visit a host of schools in the coming months.

"I'm going to check out some schools and maybe hit a couple of camps," said Wilson.

He also has an ideal offense to play in.

"I'd like to be in a pro-style offense, one that helps me to get to the next level," said Wilson.

Wilson was 136-for-235 for 2,031 yards with 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He ran for 457 yards in four touchdowns.

Academically, he has a 3.6 and will take the SAT in the spring.
