Utah senior QB Travis Wilson "is often late with his reads and makes too many poor decisions, forcing the ball into windows that simply aren't there," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observes.
"Wilson stands tall at six-feet-seven, but with his unorthodox throwing motion, the ball shoots off his hand at a low launch point, allowing defenders to float and break on throws," Brugler wrote. The Utah prospect had a rough outing in Utah's 42-24 loss to USC, completing 24-of-36 passes for 254 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Although Wilson "has some fans in the scouting community," Brugler adds that "it's hard to see him being drafted," after his outing versus USC. Oct 28 - 3:31 PM

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein panned Utah senior QB Travis Wilson's performance against USC as "absolutely dreadful."

When the shoe fits. Wilson completed 24-of-36 passes for 254 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in the 42-24 loss. "Not only was Wilson's accuracy way off, his decision-making was extremely problematic," Zierlein wrote. "Wilson threw into coverage throughout the game and was intercepted three times by USC freshman linebacker Cameron Smith. Smith kept reading Wilson's eyes and Wilson kept taking him right to the throw by locking in on slot targets. Wilson's gnarly looking arm slot and release is a turn-off to scouts, so he can't afford to make these kinds of poor decisions." The 6-foot-7, 233-pound senior has never looked like an NFL quarterback when throwing the ball.

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson completed 24-of-36 passes for 254 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in Saturday's 42-24 loss to USC.

Wilson had thrown just three interceptions in five games prior to tangoing with the Trojans on Saturday. That number's up to seven, now, as USC picked him off four times on their way to a 42-24 win. For the season, the 6-foot-7, 233-pound senior's thrown for 1,233 yards with a 9/7 TD/INT ratio. He's also matched his weight in rushing yards, with 233 of 'em, plus three rushing touchdowns.

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson completed 26-of-36 passes for 297 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 34-18 win over Arizona State.

Wilson threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Harrison Handley in the first quarter and an 11-yard scoring pass to Kenneth Scott in the second quarter. The 6-foot-7, 233-pound senior's completing 67.9% of his passes through five games played (he missed the team's 45-24 win over Fresno State on September 19 due to a shoulder injury). He's averaging 7.15 yards per attempt and has thrown for 980 yards with a 7/3 TD/INT ratio.

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson said that his shoulder is not yet back to 100% strength.

While it's certainly not a positive that Wilson' still dealing with a kinky shoulder, he indicated that it only really bothers him when he's getting hit. The injury didn't prove problematic in the slightest during Saturday's route of Oregon, as the 6-foot-7, 233-pound senior completed 18-of-30 passes for 227 yards and four touchdowns. He also turned in 100 yards and a touchdown on the ground, a nice sign given how often players become tentative when they're not at their healthiest. The Utes host Cal this weekend as they look to capture another big win.

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson offers a "unique blend of size, mobility and arm talent," notes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

The 6-foot-7, 233-pound Wilson threw for 227 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 100 yards and another score in Saturday's romp over Oregon. "Wilson attempted a variety of NFL-caliber passes, showing the velocity and accuracy to hit quick slants as well as terrific touch on fades, deep balls and short passes to the flat," Rang wrote. "Wilson showed particularly good ball placement on a seven-yard slant to his left and a nine-yard back shoulder fade near the back right pylon for a pair of second quarter touchdowns." Wilson has big durability concerns. He played with a shoulder sprain Saturday and had concussion issues in 2013 which led to the discovery of a pre-existing injury to an artery in his brain. "While doctors may be concerned, scouts will certainly take note of Wilson's unique traits," Rang wrote. "Quarterbacks with his blend of size, speed, accuracy and toughness after all, are rare."

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson went off in Saturday's 62-20 obliteration of Oregon, throwing for 227 yards and four touchdowns and running for 100 yards and another score.

In a stunning outcome -- the Utes were double-digit underdogs -- the biggest surprise may have been Wilson's star turn. He completed 18-of-30 passes and shredded an Oregon defense keyed in on Devontae Booker. Stranger still, Wilson was questionable to even play in this game due to a shoulder sprain that held him out of last week's game.

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson is questionable for Saturday's game against Oregon with a sprained left shoulder.

Wilson sprained his left shoulder on a scramble against Utah State. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham sat Wilson against Fresno State in preparation for this game. Whittingham separated Wilson and backup Kendal Thompson with an "OR" on the depth chart. Frankly, we think Oregon's QB injury situation is far more pressing than Utah's for this game. Thompson can hand off to running back Devontae Booker just about as well as Wilson can.

Utah senior QB Travis Wilson is questionable for Saturday's game against Fresno State with a sprained left shoulder.

Even if the quarterback misses the next contest, Wilson is expected back versus Oregon. The Utes have a capable backup in Kendal Thompson, as the senior has started plenty of contests when Wilson missed games. Wilson has yet to throw for a touchdown (one interception) in 2015, but he has run for two scores.
Sep 16 - 11:03 AM

Utah HC Kyle Whittingham said senior Travis Wilson remains the school's starting QB.

Whittingham expects Kendal Thompson to push Wilson, who started much of last season but was benched for a stretch during the UCLA game. Both have starting experience since Wilson has a history of head injuries. The Utes will rely heavily on running back Devontae Booker but like to spread defenses out with spacing and quick passes.
Jul 29 - 1:37 PM

Utah junior QB Travis Wilson passed for 158 yards and a touchdown and ran for 91 yards and three scores in Saturday's 45-10 win over Colorado State.

The 91 rushing yards were a season-high for Wilson. After getting benched for a few games in October, Wilson turned his season around and ended it quite hot. The 6-foot-7, 233-pound Wilson will lead a Utes squad that returns most of its starters in 2015 and will be looked at as a darkhorse Pac-12 contender.

LA Times' Scott Wolf reports that Utah HC Kyle Whittingham said he expects to start Utah junior QB Travis Wilson versus USC.

The 6-foot-7, 233-pound Wilson was benched during the UCLA game in the Utes' upset win over UCLA a week ago. Wilson will be back starting at quarterback after Oklahoma transfer and dual-threat dynamo Kendal Thompson struggled in the first half versus Oregon St. HC Whittingham replaced Thompson with Wilson in the second half in their double-overtime win against the Beavers. This season, Wilson has seven TDs and is completing 56.8 percent of his passes, while Thompson has two touchdowns and two interceptions and is completing 59.6 percent of his passes. With the competition still up in the air, we still could see Kendal Thompson make an appearance versus USC if Wilson struggles.

Utah benched junior QB Travis Wilson after two series in Saturday's upset win over UCLA.

Wilson, a statuesque pocket passer, hadn't been consistent enough through the air to justify keeping Oklahoma transfer and dual-threat dynamo Kendal Thompson on the bench. Thompson rushed for 83 yard in this one, sparking Utah's offense. Barring injury, Wilson's time as starter might be done. The same may be true of the 6-foot-7, 233-pounder's odds of getting drafted.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Utah junior QB Travis Wilson has been "inconsistent as a passer" despite not yet throwing a 2014 interception.

The 6-foot-7, 233-pounder has a huge matchup on deck against UCLA. "[Wilson is] coming off a poor outing at home against Washington State (47.4% completions, no touchdowns)," Brugler wrote. "It won't get much easier against the Bruins' opportunistic defense that has four touchdowns this season." Stud Utes' WR Dres Anderson figures to be matched up against star UCLA CB Ishmael Adams. That'll be must-see TV.

Utah junior QB Travis Wilson completed 11-of-20 attempts for 181 yards and five touchdowns to push the Utes to a 59-27 triumph over Fresno State on Saturday.

He also had 11 rushes for 37 yards. Wilson has now gone 24-for-38 for 446 yards and six touchdowns in two easy Utah wins. The 6-foot-7, 233-pounder hasn't yet thrown an interception. Wilson and Dres Anderson form one of the nation's most dynamic duos; both are being watched closely by NFL scouts.
