"I'm going to compare all my visits and whichever one I feel the most comfortable at that's where I'll commit," he said.
The Corona standout made another unofficial visit to USC last weekend for its game against Notre Dame and although he left early when it started to downpour he got a good sense for what the rivalry meant. He's familiar with the Trojans but getting to the Coliseum again was a good experience.
"We left early because it was raining but it was pretty crazy," Wilson said. "It was one of the biggest rivalries so there were a lot of people going crazy. I went out there just to see the game and talk to the coaches."
Wilson has especially hit it off with USC defensive line coach Ed Orgeron and offensive line coach James Cregg. He has also talked highly especially of his Arizona trip and said he hasn't experienced anything like what Nebraska has to offer.
"I'm hitting it off with them," Wilson said of the USC coaches. "When I got there coach Cregg saw me and gave me a big hug so that was cool."
Rivals.com rates Wilson as the No. 17 weak-side defensive end nationally and No. 39 in the California state rankings. Colorado, Colorado State, Duke, New Mexico, San Jose State, Utah, Washington and Washington State have also offered.
