Former Indiana defensive tackle Brandon Wilson is leaving Bloomington for the warm weather and sunshine.

Wilson, who decided to leave Indiana before the 2019 season, has confirmed with the Orlando Sentinel that he plans to finish his career with AAC power UCF. Wilson will be a graduate transfer and will be immediately eligible in the fall.

“I feel like UCF is really on the right path with where they seem to be going,” Wilson told the Orlando Sentinel. “It was a difficult decision to leave because there’s no bad blood between me and any of the coaches there and any of my teammates. Everybody up there respected my decision and still treated me like family.”

Wilson was a three-star prospect out of high school and was a member of Indiana’s 2015 recruiting class. He appeared in 26 games throughout this career in Bloomington, making one start.

In 2018, Wilson played in all 12 games for the Hoosiers. The defensive tackle recorded 10 tackles, one sack, forced a fumble and blocked a kick. Wilson has made 21 total tackles in his three seasons.

Wilson will have one year of eligibility remaining.

UCF has finished the regular season undefeated each of the last two seasons, winning a pair of AAC titles. The Knights have won 25 of their last 26 games, with the lone loss coming to LSU in last year’s Fiesta Bowl.
