Russell Wilson Reportedly Showing Interest In Wisconsin

Russell Wilson has been released from his scholarship at North Carolina State, and he is currently looking for a new school with which to get under center. There have been some reports that he has drawn interest from SEC schools, but according to Chip Patterson at CBS Sports, Wilson might have his eyes on somewhere further West. Wilson is reportedly showing interest in Wisconsin.

School officials cannot comment on the issue because Wilson is currently considered an unsigned recruit by the NCAA, but Wilson's arrival would be the perfect answer for a quarterback position lacking experience (and a starter fans can get excited about) at this point. Jon Budamyr is currently the Badgers' starting quarterback, but the redshirt sophomore only has played in three games and did not blow anyone away with his performance this spring.

Wilson would have to enroll in a graduate program at whatever school he joins, but he would still have one year of eligibility left. No one questions his ability, and he could really help any team he decides to join.
