Wide receiver Warren Wilson from New Hampton (N.H.) New Hampton Prep thinks he has three schools that are likely for official visits from the 6-foot-1, 173-pounder. Who is in his list and what does he want to see about those schools?
"I'm probably going to take official visits to Boston College, Northwestern and Penn State," he said. "I've been to Boston College and Northwestern and I really liked it. I want to go to an official to those to know them more. I liked Penn State from the combine there. I'd like to know more about them too. I've looked at the schedules and I'm hoping to visit Boston College when they play Florida State at home. My coach and I are also talking about a Penn State game."
With the other two official visits, who is the No. 14 prospect in New England looking at visiting?
"Right now Illinois and Vanderbilt are in the running for those visits," he said. "I'd like to learn more about each of them."
Wilson is planning a trip to Purdue at the end of the month on July 30th.
"They've offered me a scholarship already so I'm just going to try to do really well and run good routes there," he said. "I haven't been to Purdue yet, but I'm hoping they'll give me a lot of information about their academics and athletics. I know it's a really nice school and that's the important thing, I want to see if everything I hope for is there."
Wilson plans to schedule his official visits after the trip to Purdue, although he may decide to commit earlier than expected.
"I'm hoping to commit during or before the season," he said. "I'd like to get it out of the way, but we'll see. Obviously, I'll have to take more trips if I decide before the season."
One other school Wilson is still waiting to hear more from is Notre Dame.
"Hopefully Notre Dame shows me more interest," he said. "I've really like that school since I was a kid. I like coach Weis and I know he's a really good coach. Notre Dame also has great academics and athletics and it's a great place to play football."
Wilson was named honorable mention all-New England as a junior when he accounted for 1,275 yards of offense and 12 touchdowns. He added 48 tackles, seven for loss and three interceptions on defense.
This season Wilson is looking to continue that play to help New Hampton Prep back to a championship.
"I'm just looking to have a great season and have fun doing it during my last year in high school," he said. "Hopefully we'll be able to win another Class A championship, that would be huge. Besides that, I just want to stay on top of my academics and stay healthy."
