Louisville an option for Christian Wilson?

Christian Wilson

Tino Sunseri recently told Scout.com that he's been working on Christian Wilson, a four-star TE/DE from McKees Rock, PA, for Louisville. Has the future Cardinals quarterback had any luck convincing the 6-foot-2, 235-pound Wilson that Louisville is the place for him?

It doesn't exactly sound like it.

"I'm still high on pretty much the same schools that I have been," Wilson said. "Michigan is probably on top right now with Rutgers and Clemson. I like the coaches at those (three) schools and the distance isn't too far, except for Clemson. They're all good teams."

Wilson recently told Scout.com that North Carolina and Virginia Tech round out his Top 5.

Where does that leave Louisville?

"I like Louisville," Wilson said. "It's cool that they like to use big running backs and if I want to play running back in college Louisville would definitely be a school I'd really consider."

Wilson said Louisville is recruiting him as a running back. Thing is, Wilson said he'd prefer tight end, or "h-back," or perhaps a spot on defense at end or linebacker to running back. That's why Michigan, Rutgers and Clemson standout.

"They talk to me about playing H-Back or tight end or linebacker or defensive end," Wilson said.

Wilson, who made an unofficial visit to Rutgers earlier this month, said Clemson is currently recruiting him the hardest. He says he doesn't have any official visits planned or a timeframe in mind about a decision.

"I'll take as many visits as I can – if I need to," Wilson said. "If I already know where I want to go I won't take many visits."

The deciding factors for Wilson?

"The coaches, location and just where I feel the most comfortable," he said.
