One of the players we were really looking forward to seeing at the recent NIKE Camp in Utah last weekend was Spanish Fork (Utah) tight end Richard Wilson. Unfortunately, Wilson arrived just as the camp was ending after taking the ACT in the morning.
Wilson, 6-3, 220 pounds is one of the top tight ends in the region. He caught 46 balls for 700 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior and impressed at the NIKE Combine in Dallas running a 4.64-40 (SPARQ time), and jumped 30 inches in the vertical.
Scholarship offers have come in for Wilson from all over the country including schools like Miami, Tennessee, and LSU to go along with several of his offers from the West region.
Wilson took the ACT Saturday morning and hoped to arrive on the campus of BYU in time for the one on ones but he came up a little short.
"That test was hard," Wilson said upon arriving at the camp. "It took awhile for me, I was hoping to get here in time but I couldn't make it any faster."
The day was just getting going for Wilson as he left Provo and headed straight to Boise State.
"Boise State offered me on Sunday," Wilson said. "I also got an offer from Washington. The camp at Boise State was cool. I got along really well with the coaches and had fun there. The campus was just OK but they're updating some things there and I think it will look good.
"I'm also camping with LSU and looking forward to getting out there. That one will be next week. After that, I'll have to decide if I want to commit before the season or not. I'm still undecided on that."
