Bruins Keeping Watch on Wilson

Bakersfield (Calif.) West cornerback Fred Wilson had three good showings at UCLA camps and the Bruins stand atop his list as he searches for his first offer...

Bakersfield (Calif.) West cornerback/receiver Fred Wilson is one of the more under-the-radar guys in the central part of the state.

While he's waiting for his first offer, a handful of schools have been showing interest in him.

"I'm hearing the most from Weber State, Fresno State, UCLA and San Jose State, said Wilson. "UCLA is my top school and they could offer me after watching some more of my senior film."

Wilson said the attention is coming on both sides of the ball.

"UCLA is looking at me as a corner and receiver, Weber State and Fresno State as an athlete and San Jose State as a receiver," said Wilson. "I'd probably play defensive back in college, but I'd love to play receiver and kickoff returner."

At 5-11, 160, Wilson said he wants to put some more weight on before college.

"I want to be at 170 before college for sure," said Wilson.

Wilson camped at UCLA for the 1-Day Camp in early June then the Skills Camp in late June, as well as showed as one of the top defensive backs at the UCLA 7on7 in late June.

"Those were the first camps I went to, and I thought I showed well there," said Wilson.

Wilson also camped at San Jose State and plans to go to the B2G Elite Program and the Passing Down Camp this month.

He's hoping to be able to land some offers, so he can go through the recruiting process more seriously.

"I would love to take some official visits before deciding," said Wilson.

Academically, he is in fine shape, with a 3.1.

"Qualifying won't be a problem," said Wilson.

As a 2009 junior at West, Wilson had 74 tackles, an interception, a pass deflection and a forced fumble.
