NC State announced Friday that Wolfpack quarterback Russell Wilson has requested and been granted a release so that he can pursue opportunities in football at another university.

"Russell and I have had very open conversations about his responsibilities respective to baseball and football," said NC State head football coach Tom O'Brien in a statement. "While I am certainly respectful of Russell's dedication to baseball these last several years, within those discussions I also communicated to him the importance of his time commitment to NC State Football."

"Although I remain undecided on the option of playing college football this coming season, I believe it is in the best interest of the players and coaches involved to end any speculation of my return to the Wolfpack. It has become apparent that the time has come for the program to move on without me," said Wilson in a statement.
