LOS ANGELES - Travis Wilson has five offers but the San Clemente, Calif., pro-style quarterback doesn't want to name favorites until he takes some unofficial visits which starts Monday with trips to Washington, Utah and Colorado.
Arizona State and Iowa State have also offered Wilson, a 6-foot-6, 205-pound prospect who was one of the top quarterbacks at Sunday's Los Angeles NIKE Camp.
"I don't really have any favorites right now," Wilson said.
"I'm going to look at Washington, Utah and Colorado. I start on Monday so I'm going to look at those schools first. I just want to see what's going on, what they provide and their academics."
In his junior season, Wilson threw for 2,031 yards with 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions and also rushed for four scores. He's tall and has a powerful arm and so recruiting has picked up in recent months.
Although no clear leaders have emerged, Wilson said Utah is sticking out just a little bit mainly because offensive coordinator Norm Chow has had such success in his coaching career with quarterbacks.
"I think Norm Chow sticks out a lot," Wilson said. "He's been a really good quarterback coach so that's important. Definitely getting an offer from them has been a huge compliment."
But Wilson wants to take visits before saying any school has his attention more than the others.
"I definitely want to see what's going on," he said. "I want to see all the campuses and get a vibe from each one."
