While Wilson played strictly defensive end for San Clemente last year, Wilson projects as a tight end in college, and has been practicing as a tight end at the camps he has attended.
A couple of weeks ago, Wilson split his time at the Arizona and UCLA camp, and garnered an offer from the Wildcats. "Both the camps were great. I had a good time, and they were good experiences for me," said Wilson.
As a junior, Wilson garnered 60 tackles, 10 sacks and a fumble recovery for a touchdown at defensive end. He will still play defensive end for San Clemente this year, but will also return to the offensive side of the ball.
He attended both of the Nike Camps in California, recording his best 40 time at 4.9, and a 27-inch vertical.
However, UCLA and Arizona stand atop his list, with Colorado, Oregon and Washington right behind them. A long-time UCLA fan, Wilson is waiting on a UCLA offer, even if that might not happen until later this year. "I am in no hurry to make a decision. I am going to take my time, take my trips, then make my decision."
He is being recruited to UCLA by Coach Johnson and Coach Kerr. "I like Coach Johnson a lot, he is a good coach, and so is Coach Kerr. I really like Coach Dorrell, too. He is going to work out well for UCLA and get a lot more production from them."
Wilson is on track to be fully qualified and is done with camps for the summer.
