Russell Wilson Visiting Auburn, According To Report

Colorado Rockies infielder Russell Wilson is still trying to figure out where he will play college football this fall, but the Auburn football team is reportedly one of the places he is interested in. According to a report by ESPN's Joe Schad, Wilson is visiting Auburn this week:

A person close to Wilson said the quarterback arrived at Auburn on Monday night and would spend all Tuesday with coaches in an effort to get to know them and the offensive playbook and scheme used by offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn.

The only other school that is known to have interest is Wisconsin, though at least a dozen places have contacted him.

Wilson will be a redshirt senior this year, having already graduated from North Carolina State. After it was clear he would not be the starter, Wilson asked for a release from his scholarship. Under NCAA rules, Wilson can make a one-time transfer out of his conference (ACC) to another school by enrolling in a graduate school program not offered by NC State.

Wilson is hitting .216/.368/.310 in 38 games this season for the Low-A Asheville Tourists.
