The former NC State star quarterback, currently playing baseball for the Class A Asheville Tourists, seems genuinely torn about what to do. By all accounts, he had successful visits to both Auburn and Wisconsin. Yet despite some struggles in the minors, he doesn't want to give up on baseball.
Ultimately, a decision must be made, and Wilson knows it.
Angst-ridden Wisconsin fans won't have to wait too much longer to learn whether they gain a potential centerpiece for the offense.
From The Asheville Citizen-Times:
"I have to make a decision on what I'm going to do, and I hope to do that no later than July 1," said Wilson, who confirmed publicly for the first time that he will choose either Auburn or Wisconsin if the decision is football.
The Colorado Rockies, who selected Wilson in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, want him to remain with Asheville through the season and then possibly go to an instructional league in the fall. Wilson played rookie league ball last summer but left early to begin preparations for football at NC State.
