SALT LAKE CITY — Utah quarterback Travis Wilson has been cited at a concert on a charge of possession or consumption of alcohol by a minor.

The Utah Department of Public Safety issued a statement Saturday saying the 20-year-old Wilson was cited Friday night in Salt Lake City and released at the scene.

Team officials didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Utes head coach Kyle Whittingham said this week that Wilson is the favorite for the starting quarterback job heading into training camp.

Last month, Wilson was cleared to play months after a concussion revealed a pre-existing medical condition last season.

The 6-foot-7, 240-pound junior has started 16 games over two seasons. He completed 133 of 237 passes for 1,827 yards, 16 touchdowns and 16 interceptions for the Utes last season before his concussion.
