Wide receiver George Wilson was one of WSU's final targets heading into National Signing Day, but the 3-star wide receiver opted to stick with his commitment to Utah and sign with the Utes.

Wilson originally committed to Utah in July, but kept his options open with WSU and Boise State among the teams that remained in pursuit. He took an official visit to WSU in early October before taking trips to Utah and Boise State in the weeks leading up to National Signing Days. Neither team, however, was able to flip his commitment.

WSU had a need at wide receiver with some departures during the recruiting process and Wilson would have been a nice late addition. He's a consensus 3-star recruit with 247 Sports ranking him as a 4-star prospect and the No. 33 wide receiver in the country. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, he would have fit as an outside receiver in Pullman and given the Cougars some extra depth in the coming years.

WSU has already signed wide receivers C.J. Dimry and Kyle Sweet in the 2015 class with Deontay Burnett's status still to be resolved.
