Former All-American Plays For Scotland U-20s

The last thing the Eagles want to see is players they've brought into their youth program leave for another country, especially a Tier I country but that is exactly what could happen with Bailey Wilson. The former Junior All-American has been training with the Scotland U-20 team and played for them last night in a training match against a Scotland Club XV side according to journalist Jamie Lyall. They lost 41-7. He qualifies for Scotland through ancestry. It's possible that Wilson could make the Scotland team for the U-20 Six Nations.

Wilson is originally from Australia but moved to the U.S. at the age of 12. He first played in Florida before moving to Utah where he played with United. He had a solid career with United and eventually gained a spot on the Junior All-American team. He started at flanker in the JWRT qualifying series against Canada last year. Playing for the Scotland U-20s wouldn't disqualify him from playing for the Eagles but the U.S. still has to be worried that one of their players is looking elsewhere.
