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.
