"There's been a lot of talk about your personal life. Are you dating anyone special?" Nischelle asked the 26-year-old football star.

"That's why it's my personal life, I don't talk about it too much," Wilson said, smiling. "But, there is someone in mind. I'll say that."

"Does her name begin with a 'C'?" Nischelle asked, looking to get a little more out of the young athlete.

"Who knows? I'm not a great speller," Wilson said, laughing. It's clear he's got someone, but he's not ready to confirm much right now.

As for his date that night, Wilson brought his grandmother Carolyn, who said she was honored to attend with her grandson.

"I just love her to death," Wilson said of his grandma. "Obviously to bring her tonight is something really special to me. I was fortunate enough to bring my mom last year, and this year I get to bring the most genuine woman in the world, that I know, so to have her here is very special."
