Corner Canyon QB Zach Wilson decommits from Boise State after receiving offers from BYU and Iowa

Corner Canyon quarterback Zach Wilson has been dead set on going to Boise State all season. That changed this week.

Wilson announced his decommitment from the Broncos on Twitter on Wednesday. He still plans to sign early and begin college next term, he told The Tribune, which gives him about a week to decide where he’s headed. The early signing period begins Dec. 20.

“Crazy, eight days,” said Wilson, who told The Tribune he officially decommited Tuesday night.

Wilson backed off his commitment to Boise State after a week in which BYU and Iowa made offers. He said the Broncos wanted to know what he was thinking, and he backed out of his verbal commitment.

“My family and I have been 100 percent committed to Boise State since the day I committed,” Wilson said in his statement on Twitter. “We have traveled to Boise several times, purchased Boise apparel and registered for school. The coaching staff and fans have been truly amazing. The recruiting experience was flawless. But sometimes life presents opportunities that need to [be] considered. Especially when it impacts my family, which is number ONE on my priority list.”

Wilson also shared on social media in late October that he received offers from Minnesota and Syracuse. He plans to sign a National Letter of Intent during the early signing period, which runs Dec. 20 to 22.

The Corner Canyon standout finished 10th in the state in passing yards (2,986) and fourth in passing yards per game (298.6). Wilson also led the team in rushing yards, with 752 yards on 119 carries.

The dual-threat quarterback led his team to the Class 5A state semifinals, where they lost to Skyridge in a nail-biting 34-33 game. He played that game with an injured ankle but still threw for 341 yards.

“I was supposed to be done the rest of the season,” he said after the game. “But I had to come out and help my team. You just gotta put your injuries to the side, especially if they aren’t going to be life-threatening.”
