Wilson has some early favorites

Julius Wilson is up to 12 offers and the Culver City, Calif., wide receiver said this past weekend that two programs are particularly standing out.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound three-star prospect said Washington and Nebraska look the best in his recruitment so far but it's still early and he's trying to determine whether to play football or basketball - or possibly both - in college.
"The highest on my list would be Washington," Wilson said. "That was my first one. That one surprised me and I have a few friends who go there.
"The (Nebraska) offer blew my mind. I knew they recruited out here but I didn't talk to them before and it was just something that popped up. I talked to the coach and he liked me a lot."
Cal, Illinois, San Diego State, UCLA, Utah, Washington State and others are also involved with Wilson, who shined this past weekend at the Pierce College 7on7 tournament in Woodland Hills, Calif.
A decision probably won't come anytime soon because Wilson still wants to find a school that would take him for both sports and he's undecided on location, too.
The Culver City standout said he'd prefer to stay on the West Coast but remains open to all options like Nebraska and others if he determines it's a better fit.
"I'm definitely still weighing how basketball and football would work," Wilson said. "I'm the same in basketball and football but as of right now I just have to look at both. It's been tough but it's something I want to throw in there, whether I can play or not.
"I kind of want to stay West Coast, maybe Pac-12, but I'm looking at everything. It kind of depends on where I best fit academically and athletically."
