Wilson was cleared to participate in spring ball, but things were not looking good back in February. Doctors were calling Wilson's issues at the time "concussion related," so this is a note worth watching. Jun 24 - 2:30 PM

Utah junior QB Travis Wilson (concussion) has been cleared to participate in spring ball.

Wilson's season ended early in November when he suffered a concussion against Arizona State. Preliminary tests intimated that Wilson's career might be in jeopardy due to damage in his intracranial artery. Fortunately, that turned out not to be the case. Wilson has only been cleared for non-contact drills, but Lya Wodraska of the Salt Lake Tribune reminds us that the "Utes don't hit their QBs anyway."

Utah sophomore QB Travis Wilson will miss Saturday's game against Oregon due to a concussion.

The quarterback did not travel with the team. Wilson, statistically speaking, has had a very up and down season, tossing 16 touchdowns and 16 interceptions while completing 56.1 percent of his passes. The sophomore has NFL size, so he'll draw interest heading into next season.

Utah sophomore QB Travis Wilson completed 22 of 44 attempts for 288 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions in a 34-27 loss to UCLA.

Wilson's passes were very erratic in this contest, and UCLA even dropped a few other possible interceptions. Most targets were overshot, but the Bruin pass rush certainly didn't allow Wilson to have extra time. He had only thrown three picks prior to this game.

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff expects Utah sophomore QB Travis Wilson to be a breakout star this season.

Middlekauff calls Wilson a "BIG recruit who was forced into action last year (because) of injuries. 6-6 240, who the staff raved about last season." The young passer had a strong spring game and could continue that success this season. However, Utah did look overmatched at times as a new member of the PAC-12.

Utah freshman Travis Wilson could be pushing incumbent Jordan Wynn for the starting QB spot.

Obviously the consensus is that Wynn has the starters job locked up, since he has held the position since 2009, but Wilson's offseason performance may have opened a camp battle. "I wouldn't say we have a quarterback battle... but that is something we can let play itself out. We'll play whoever the best guy is, nothing is set in stone," said head coach Kyle Whittingham.

Freshman Travis Wilson played well beyond his experience level this spring.

Wilson, an early enrollee, said adjusting to the speed of the college game has been his biggest challenge. But adjust he has and coach Kyle Whittingham can'y say enough about Wilson’s ability to make things happen. If Wilson continues to impress in August, Whittingham may turn to him should something happen to starter Jordan Wynn, who is coming off shoulder surgery.
