Ranking the 10 best graduate transfers in college football since Russell Wilson in 2011
Bret Bielema believes there's a specific moment on every recruiting visit in which something said or done shapes the prospect's future path.
When Russell Wilson visited Wisconsin in June 2011, he faced a decision not only between schools (Wisconsin vs. Auburn) but sports (football vs. baseball). He had produced a good career as NC State's quarterback, but was also a fourth-round pick of the Colorado Rockies in the 2010 MLB draft. He wanted to see how far he could go on the diamond. NC State's coaches wanted Wilson to commit to football, so they eventually released him.
