It was a wild last few weeks for Zach Wilson, and in the end he decided to stay close to home by signing with BYU.
After giving a verbal commitment to Boise State back in June, he opened up his recruitment on December 13th after receiving increased interest from other programs. After taking an official visit to BYU, Wilson received a couple of Pac-12 offers from Oregon State and Cal. Iowa was also in the mix, until they were able to land four-star QB Spencer Petras from Marin, CA. Syracuse, Minnesota and a handful of other Mountain West schools also offered.
According to 247 Sports, Wilson is the 17th ranked prospect out of the state of Utah has a composite score of 0.847 (3 stars).
The quarterback out of Corner Canyon High School (Utah) completed 57% of his passes for 2,986 yards and 24 touchdowns. He led the Chargers to an undefeated regular season before falling in the 5A semifinal matchup against Skyview.
Nice pickup for BYU to snag Wilson over Boise State and a handful of other Power 5 schools. Wilson has no LDS mission plans at the moment, so he will come in right away and compete for a starting job in a wide open QB race.
