Boise State football lands quarterback from Oklahoma high school

The Boise State football team picked up a commitment from a future quarterback Sunday.

Micah Wilson, a 6-foot-3, 200-pounder from Lincoln Christian School in Tulsa, Okla., gave his verbal commitment to the Broncos and their 2016 class following a visit to Boise. Wilson announced it on Twitter.

According to MaxPreps, Wilson threw for 2,371 yards with 34 touchdowns to nine interceptions and ran for 549 yards and six touchdowns as a junior. Wilson posted offers from schools on his Twitter account. His Football Bowl Subdivision offers came from Mountain West schools — Wyoming, Colorado State, UNLV and Nevada also offered. Intelligence will be one of his strengths, considering Wilson also had offers from Harvard and Yale.

Wilson does not have a star rating on Rivals.com, but the site ranked him Oklahoma’s top quarterback prospect in late February. He is a three-star recruit on Scout.com and rated the nation’s No. 34 quarterback prospect. He is the third known commitment for the Broncos’ 2016 recruiting class.
