Source: Russell Wilson weighs options
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.
