National offer on the way

Spanish Fork, Utah, tight end Richard Wilson is already thought of as one of the top tight ends in the West.
The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder picked up early offers from in-state powers BYU and Utah, but he said lately an out of state power has caught his eye.
"LSU talked to my coaching staff and they said they were offering me," he said. "I've been told to expect a written offer from them here soon. LSU is big time. They're the national champs and it doesn't get better than that."

Even if Wilson does add the offer from the Tigers, it doesn't look like he's quite ready to claim favorites.
"I'm keeping my options open," he said. "I'm wide open. "BYU and Utah I talk them quite a bit. They've stopped by my school and stayed and touch. I've been talking to BSU a lot and Colorado too."
"I would like to take a visit to LSU. I've been to Colorado, and I've been to Idaho. I've never been that east (Louisiana). I don't even know what it's like there, and I want to know what it's like to be there."
Wilson would like to get a decision out of the way before his senior season starts, but admits he's not going to do anything without looking at some schools on visits.
"I want to make my decision before my senior year, so that way I can get it out the way so I can concentrate on winning that state championship," he said. "I want to make some official visits. I just need to talk with the coaches and see when that can happen. "
At this point, he said he's built the best relationship with the coaches up at BYU.
"I have a great relationship with Bronco Mendenhall," Wilson said. "We have the same faith and we believe in the same things. (BYU) headed in the right direction. But all the coaches are awesome. They're way cool guys and I like to hear from them."
"The best part of the recruiting process is just how you've always dreamed to be recruited like this since you were little growing up. The worst is just trying to make that decision. You don't want to disappoint the coaches."
When it comes time to make a decision, Wilson said he knows what will be important.
"I'm looking at the education," he said. "It's a big part for me. The school I'll pick, I must also fit into, help out and be involved in the offense. My parents have been supporting me they're 100 percent with my decision whatever it is."
