SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Isaac Wilson takes his sibling rivalry to the college football field.
Wilson, the younger brother of New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, has committed to playing the same position at Utah — a local rival in his big brother’s BYU program.
The four-star quarterback from Corner Canyon High School in Draper, Utah, announced plans to play for the Utes on Wednesday. Lisa Wilson, his mother, posted several photos of Isaac in Utah on his Instagram stories Wednesday night.
Mike Wilson, Isaac and Zach’s father, has direct ties to Utah — he played on the Utes defensive line from 1993-94.
Isaac Wilson threw for 3,774 yards and 40 touchdowns in 14 games last season as a senior. He also rushed for 695 yards and five touchdowns.
Zach Wilson threw 56 TD passes in 30 games over three seasons at BYU before being the No. 2 overall pick in the Jets’ 2021 NFL Draft. He mostly struggled in his first two pro seasons and is intended to be the backup of Aaron Rodgers, acquired by New York of Green Bay last month.
