St. Anselm's Wilson signs with Arizona
St. Anselm College wide receiver Marc Wilson went undrafted, but that doesn't mean he was unwanted.
Wilson, who also played quarterback, running back and retutned kicks for St. Anselm, signed a three-year free agent contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night.
"They were on campus five different times, and they sent multiple scouts out," St. Anselm coach Pat Murphy said. "He's fast, he's tough and he's got a great football IQ. If he doesn't have any of those three things we're not talking about him right now."
Wilson was St. Anselm's starting quarterback as a freshman, but played primarily receiver during his last three seasons with the Hawks. He attended UNH's pro day earlier this month.
"He's able to do just about everything but play tight end or offensive line, or linebacker or defensive line," Murphy said. "That's one thing he's got going for him is his versatility. He can play special teams."
Wilson played in 37 games for the Hawks. He's the program's all-time leader in receiving yards (2,149), receptions (211), touchdown receptions (17), all-purpose yards (5,367), total touchdowns (30), total points (184), kick-return yards (1,800) and kick-return touchdowns (two). Wilson also ranks third in rushing yards (1,626) and fourth in both rushing touchdowns (11) and total offense (2,629).
Murphy said Wilson is scheduled to fly to Arizona on Friday.
