One of the big things Nick Wilson wanted to accomplish during his Arizona junior day visit was to see how he could be used in the offense in a similar way to star running back Ka'Deem Carey.
The Wildcats' coaching staff did one better - Wilson met Carey and it was a big moment for the 2014 running back from Fresno (Calif.) Central East.
"It was really good," Wilson said. "I enjoyed myself, liked the campus, talked to coach (Rich) Rodriguez and overall I had so much fun.

"I actually met Ka'Deem Carey and it was funny because the coaches were saying it looked like we were separated at birth.
"I really enjoyed myself for the most part. I met Ka'Deem, he's a nice guy, he's actually a really great guy, I met the whole coaching staff and the running backs coach. All the coaches were great."
Arizona has always been considered one of the favorites for Wilson, who impressed at the recent Army National Combine in San Antonio, and his visit only solidified that belief.
Arizona, Boise State and Cal have all offered the 5-foot-11, 195-pound four-star running back and those make up his frontrunners since Wilson said it's far too early to make a commitment.
Many others are also showing interest.
"(Arizona) has always been kind of up there in my top and they're still in my top three," Wilson said.
"As of right now I don't think I'm going to make my commitment until I can take some official visits. I'm going to try to do that as early as possible."
Wilson's top three is set and the Fresno Central East standout said he's been hearing more from Arizona State and believes another offer might be close. Notre Dame, Tennessee and Washington have all reached out as well.
