Russell Wilson decision coming as early as Wednesday?

Russell Wilson

After what was described as a “grand-slam visit” to Wisconsin last week, it’s been widely expected that former North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson could become current Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson at some point in the not-too-distant future, perhaps by the end of the current month.

Based on at least one tidbit tossed into a report from the area, it could very well happen before the end of the current week.

In an article relating to Wisconsin committing what appears to be a secondary violation in the recruitment of Wilson, Andy Baggot of madison.com writes that “[a] decision is expected as early as Wednesday.”  That was the only mention of any type of timeline for Wilson’s decision, and there was no mention of whether he’d opt for the Badgers or the Auburn Tigers, where he visited last month.  Or if he’d opt to remain a minor leaguer in the Colorado Rockies organization and keep all of his $250,000 signing bonus.

It remains to be seen which sports path Wilson will continue on, although it’s been previously reported there was a 95-percent certainty he’d return to college football in 2011 to use his final season of eligibility.  Most of the speculation surfacing since that report has pointed in the same direction.

If Baggot’s correct, however, any uncertainty could be resolved as early as some point tomorrow.  Maybe.

    Wisconsin and Auburn are making their last second bids.

    Who wants him more?

    Wilson = avg player on an avg team in a bad conference. Amazing he is getting this much attention. If he was that good Tom O would have never let him go.

    blackdb, it wasn’t simply a case of TOB “letting him go”. TOB did what he had to do. Russell would not commit to a return to the team. Without a firm commitment from Russell, TOB had to handle this the way he did, because if Glennon so much as THOUGHT Russell was coming back, he would have transferred somewhere else. Now imagine no Glennon, and then Russell decides not to return to football. We’d have been left with NEITHER.

    TOB had no choice. He was only going to have one or the other, but not both. And he could have ended up with NEITHER.

    LOL at blackdb saying Russell Wilson is an “average” player. You haven’t watched him play enough, friend. Hopefully he plays football somewhere like Auburn where he can prove the blind folks wrong.

    I have seen him play since high school how many championships has he won? Has he stayed healthy a full season in college football? Maybe last season he was healthy the whole season. I don’t think he is a bad guy I just personally do not think he is a great football player.
