Marquee receiver sets two major visits

It is beginning to look like Marquis Wilson, who is the quick wide receiver from Draper (Utah) Juan Diego, could be looking at his last three schools. Since he has seen the one university many times in the past, that school might have the advantage. However, he is definitely considering one Pac-10 school and Nebraska.

His decision might be coming soon - subject to change. He just completed another unofficial visit to the University of Utah, but two official visits are slated for early September, which might narrow down his list to two or even his final choice.

"I went to the U (Utah) for an unofficial visit last Wednesday," the 5-foot-11, 170 pound Wilson said. "It went pretty good. They showed me around the campus - more than before. The school administrators - I talked with them."

Does he have any official visits set for the near future?

"For Nebraska I do," he said. "September 4th I'm going up there in the morning and come back on Monday. It is pretty cool. I'm real excited about it."

With Nebraska being the furthest away from his home in Utah, the other schools that have offered (Utah, Utah State, BYU and Arizona) him would seem to make them his leaders, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

"No, not really," he said. "I think I'm looking at Nebraska over BYU and Utah State."

He is listing "Utah, Nebraska and Arizona" as his top three. After his visit to Nebraska, then he will make his first visit to Arizona - Sept. 10 for their battle against Utah.

By the middle of September he might have a decision. Only time will tell.
