Cerritos signal-caller open to possibilities

This past season, one of the top JUCO signal-callers in the state of California was Cerritos QB Kane Wilson (6-4, 220). The athletic trigger-man spent the 2009 season redshirting at Utah State, but was looking for a different opportunity so he left and ended up leading the Falcons to a 9-3 record and could sign with a school allowing him to enroll this summer with three years to play three...

Wilson prepped at El Dorado (Placentia, Ca.) and signed with Utah State, but after spending a year with the Aggies, he decided a change was needed.

"Things just didn't work out for me there," Wilson told JCFootball.com. "I traveled, but they saved my redshirt and then after the season I left and came to Cerritos so I could have a chance at playing D-1 ball again."

This past season, while leading the Cerritos attack, Wilson managed to complete nearly 60% of his passes for 2,119 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions, using his 4.61 speed and prototypical height to be a playmaker with his arm as well as his legs.

"I can be an all-around quarterback," Wilson said. "In high school we ran mainly a running offense and I rushed for 1,000 yards and threw for 2,000 as a senior and then this year we were more of a pro-style attack, so I had to stay in the pocket and lead things that way."

On the recruiting front, Wilson's coaches have heard from schools like Cal, Washington and UTEP, inquiring about his availability and he's getting some interest from D-2 and NAIA schools.

"I'd like to sign with a school this year and enroll in the summer, but right now that option isn't really open for me yet," Wilson said. "If things don't work out, I could end up coming back to Cerritos, but I haven't really decided what I want to do."

Wilson is a 4-2-4 player who would need to get his AA degree before he could enroll at a four-year school and he should have that by May. Wherever he ends up, if he signs with a school this year, he will have three years to play three once he steps on campus.
