Wilson Tells Rockies He's Going with Football

NEW YORK (AP) -- Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson tells The New York Times that he has decided to play in the NFL rather than continue his baseball career in the Colorado Rockies' organization.

Wilson was taken by the Rockies as a second baseman on the fourth round with the 140th pick two years ago and hit .229 over two seasons with five homers and 26 RBIs in the Northwest and South Atlantic leagues.

He helped Wisconsin reach the Rose Bowl this season after transferring from North Carolina State and has told the Rockies he will not be reporting for spring training.
