Gardena (Calif.) Serra quarterback Caleb Wilson is no longer just a quarterback.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pound two-star is gaining the interest from several
football programs at two different positions. Wilson has used his huge
frame to help Serra in the passing game as a tight end and wide
“BYU, UAB, San Diego State, San Jose State and Colorado are all
recruiting me since I moved to tight end,” said Wilson. “They like my size
and definitely liked seeing me score four touchdowns in two games.
“It’s been going well, and with other schools, I’ve been just sending
out my film to see if they like me. I even talked to USC about me
playing tight end. Coach (Marques) Tuiasosopo says he likes my size as
Wilson does have scholarship offers from Old Dominion and Central
Arkansas as a quarterback, but he has no problem playing tight
end at the next level if it affords him more options.
With his father Chris the defensive line coach the Trojans, Caleb has
the opportunity to go to USC for free. As a private university, USC
allows all children of employees free tuition.
“USC is hard to beat,” said Wilson. “I’ve been to Oklahoma, Georgia,
Colorado… I’ve been around a lot of big time schools with my dad
coaching, and the tradition at USC is amazing.
“They have great athletes. With 50 recruited players on the roster,
they’re out there still competing in the Pac-12. I like the school and
the facilities are pretty good.
“Plus my dad is there, so that’s always a plus. The campus is nice, so
I like USC since I’ve been leaving here.”
The big question is, would Wilson forgo a scholarship offer somewhere
else to walk-on at USC?
“My dream school has always been Oklahoma,” said Wilson. “My dad
coached there and my mom went there. That’s always been my dream
“I went up there and visited this past summer, which was a good
experience. With USC, I’m staying open with the entire recruiting
“I don’t have to stay close to home because I’ve lived all over the
country. I don’t mind leaving for school and I’ll play any position a
college needs me to.
“If USC is the best option I have, I’d greatly consider them.”
