Another Wilson, another BYU commit.
Corner Canyon High linebacker Micah Wilson became the third in his family to commit to play for the Cougars on Tuesday, making the announcement via social media.
Family is everything to me. Staying close to home, playing with my brother and having the opportunity to work with amazing coaches, makes BYU the perfect fit for me. With that being said, I am COMMITTED to BYU and I’m excited to start my journey at the next level.@kalanifsitake pic.twitter.com/fAKma2f2ST— Micah wilson (@Micah_Wilson11) April 20, 2021
“Family is everything to me. Staying close to home, playing with my brother and having the opportunity to work with amazing coaches, makes BYU the perfect fit for me,” Wilson said on Twitter.
He is the younger brother of quarterback Zach Wilson, who’s projected to become the highest draft selection in BYU history in next week’s NFL draft, and Josh Wilson, who played his first season at linebacker for the Cougars in 2020.
Micah Wilson is a part of the 2022 recruiting class, and is rated a three-star recruit and No. 21 in the state of Utah by 247 Sports. Like his brother Josh, Micah Wilson is an inside linebacker.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Wilson had 133 tackles and a half sack last season, per the Deseret News prep database, in helping the Chargers win their third straight state football title.
Wilson is the sixth commit in the 2022 class, according to 247 Sports, and all are from Utah schools. The others include American Fork High outside linebacker Noah Moeaki, Weber High athlete Cannon DeVries, Wasatch High athlete Jarinn Kalama, West High outside linebacker Liutai Kinikini and Alta High safety Maika Kaufusi.
