DOWNEY, Calif. — Valencia (Calif.) four-star linebacker JayJay Wilson played tight end in the B2G West Coast Bowl Saturday, which is the position many schools see him playing at the next level.
USC, which offered Wilson a scholarship last week, is recruiting him as
an athlete. However, position isn’t the biggest question Wilson has
“I talked to them about the blue shirt stuff, and at first, I wasn’t really
understanding it,” admitted Wilson. “I think it would be like a normal
scholarship, but instead of coming in with the other freshmen in June,
I would come in August.
“I’m not really sure about it. I feel like if I was a priority, I would
just come in like a normal recruit in June. At the same time, it’s a
blessing to have an offer from USC.
“That’s a school I grew up watching, so it’s definitely something to
think about. I’m pretty sure anyone who gets an offer from USC would
start to second guess themselves.”
Bu Wilson also indicates the time for thinking may be drawing to an
end. Although he can take an additional official visit next week,
Wilson may instead finals plans to announce a commitment.
“I’m thinking about visiting Colorado still on the 31st, but I don’t
know,” said Wilson. “I have to talk it over with my dad because I have
a school in mind already.
“I may visit Colorado just to make sure I’m weighing all my options, or
I may just stay home. I have to talk with my dad and see what works
best because I know I want to make my decision before signing day.
“I’ll have a ceremony on signing day and everything, but I want to
commit before then.”
Wilson does not have an exact date for when he will commit, but with no
in-home visits planned this week, his family will begin preparations to
end the process.
“I’m just blessed to have these offers,” said Wilson. “To get an offer
from a school like USC is like a dream come true. USC has great
academics and great tradition in football. I just have to look at
what’s the best fit for me as well.
“A lot of schools came in late to recruit me, which is a blessing, but
I think I know what I want to do."
Wilson officially visited Arizona State Jan. 24 and Utah Dec. 12. As a
candidate for an advance scholarship at USC, he will not officially
visit Los Angeles nor receive an in-home visit by the Trojans coaching
