After decommitting from Boise State this week, quarterback Zach Wilson has scheduled an official visit to Iowa. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Utah native will be traveling to Iowa City with his parents tomorrow to learn more about the Hawkeyes.

"I have never been to Iowa, but have heard nothing but great things about the people in Iowa," said Wilson. "I know it’s big time football and they play a great schedule. Also, education is at the top of my list and Iowa has one of the best schools around. I'm excited to learn more."

As Iowa continues their search for a quarterback in the Class of 2018, assistant coach Ken O'Keefe has made a couple trips to Utah to see Wilson and brought head coach Kirk Ferentz along with him this week to meet the three-star prospect and his family.

"Coach Ferentz and Coach O’Keefe have been great," Wilson said. "They were out here Monday for a home visit and we had a great time getting to know them."

Along with Iowa, Wilson has a new offer from BYU, which is close to home, and is also still considering Boise State as well. During the recruiting process, he also received offers from Minnesota, Syracuse, Fresno State, Hawaii, Utah State, Weber State, Nevada, UNLV, and Idaho.

Despite just recently reopening his recruiting, Wilson still plans to sign in December and enroll at the college of his choice at semester in January.

"I want to enroll early," said Wilson. "I have work really hard to get all my classes done and I didn’t play basketball this year because I thought I was leaving."

As a senior, Wilson was 170/297 passing (57.2%) for 2,986 yards and 24 touchdowns with 8 interceptions. He also had 752 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground as well for Corner Canyon High School, leading them to an 11-1 record.
