On June 30, 2010, Wilson transfered from the University of Oregon to Marquette. Jamil stated that, “After Coach Kent got fired, me and my dad talked about it…just being away from home. Missing my family so much, and not really noticing how much I depend on my family because I was here and around them all the time. I would come home sometimes for holidays and not want to go back, or stay a couple more days – things like that. So after I came home the idea came up, we sat down and talked about it and thought it would be a good idea for me to get my release and try to move to a school closer. When I got it, I kind of knew Marquette was going to be in the mix. Marquette's always been in the mix – even when my mom was here and Crean was at Marquette it was always one of my top schools. I always knew I would be at Marquette; I just didn't know when. But it's occurring now so, hey, it's my time.”
