To say Payson High's Matt Wilson had a great season would be an understatement.
Wilson helped his team win the 3A state title and was a first team All-Arizona selection for his play. His paly paid off in another form, when Northern Arizona extended a scholarship offer to the 6-6 270 pounder.
Wilson told Scout.com today that he has accepted that offer from NAU and gave his verbal commitment.
"I just felt like it was the best fit for me," says Wilson. "I wanted to go to NAU for the schooling. I also like the coaches a lot so I just felt like it was the best thing for me to do."
Wilson wants to major in physical therapy and carries a 3.9 GPA and scored a 25 on the ACT.
