Wilson to go to Penn State for football

High schools

All-Metro Chris Wilson of Catonsville said last night that he has committed to a full football scholarship to attend Penn State, which recruited him as a running back.

Among the five schools Wilson still was considering were Maryland, Michigan and Virginia, but Wilson said his two top programs were Penn State and Stanford.

Wilson, who turned 17 in November, visited Penn State over the summer and said he attended three of the Nittany Lions' games. Wilson was named Gatorade's Player of the Year for Maryland.

"It was pretty much a dead heat between Penn State and Stanford, but the departure of coach Tyrone Willingham [to Notre Dame] put me over the edge in favor of Penn State," said Wilson, who carries a 3.7 grade point average and scored 1,420 on his SAT.
