John Taylor at College Football Talk is posting the following regarding Russell Wilson.
After what was described as a â€œgrand-slam visitâ€ to Wisconsin last week, itâ€™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 â€œ[a] decision is expected as early as Wednesday.â€ That was the only mention of any type of timeline for Wilsonâ€™s decision, and there was no mention of whether heâ€™d opt for the Badgers or the Auburn Tigers, where he visited last month. Or if heâ€™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 itâ€™s been previously reported there was a 95-percent certainty heâ€™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 Baggotâ€™s correct, however, any uncertainty could be resolved as early as some point tomorrow. Maybe.
