North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson did not enter the NFL draft on Saturday and is leaving open the possibility of returning to play college football next season, a source close to the player said.
Wilson does plan to attend Colorado Rockies spring training after being drafted by the team, but is also seriously considering playing a senior year of college football, the source said.
In his junior year with the Wolfpack, Wilson threw for a career-high 3,563 yards while tossing 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
With Wilson at the helm, N.C. State went 9-4 including a 23-7 victory over West Virginia in the Champs Sports Bowl.
