#CFC100 DE Wilson signs with NCAA’s North Dakota (VIDEO)

Arnprior defensive end accepts offer from NCAA Division 1 FCS team.

Carter Wilson’s dream of playing in the NCAA has come to fruition.

Yesterday, the 6’3, 220 defensive end from Arnprior, Ontario officially signed with Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) team, North Dakota Fighting Sioux. Wilson is a late signee and will join the team in time for the fall season.

Last month, Wilson received the offer while attending a 7 on 7 event in Winnipeg hosted by Recruit Ready.

The offer from the Fighting Sioux was his first Division 1 offer.  The #CFC100 also netted others from St. Joseph’s in Ohio (Division 3) and Simon Fraser Clan in Burnaby, British Columbia (Division 2).

Additionally, three CIS schools were in contention for the #CFC100 including Western, Carleton and Wilfrid Laurier.

In an interview with CFC back in December, Wilson’s ultimate desire was to play NCAA football.

“I want to play NCAA football so ill hopefully attend a prep school for my post grad to put myself in a position to do so,” said Wilson at the time.

Wilson has an extensive resume of gridiron experience.  Among the teams he has suited up for include Ottawa Sooners of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC), Ottawa Myers Riders of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), Arnprior Redmen of the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (EOSSAA) as well as both the Myers Riders and West Carlton Wolverines of the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA).

The defensive end has guided all these teams to several championship appearances and victories.

Throughout his career, he has received several honours for his efforts on the field including Wolverines MVP (2011), OVFL and NCAFA Myers Riders Defensive Lineman of the Year (2013) as well as OFC Defensive Lineman of the Year Award (2014).

Wilson is the second member of his family to extend his gridiron career.  His brother Spencer is currently with the UBC Thunderbirds and has been a main influence throughout his career.

“My brother Spencer plays for UBC and having him as a constant motivator to be better than he was has really helped me push myself to the limits also learning from him added to my skills I’ve learned from many great coaches,” expressed the #CFC100.
