4-Star RB Wilkins Set To Announce Decision

Four-star running back Jordan Wilkins discusses Auburn, Tennessee and Vanderbilt and choosing between the three on Wednesday.

Cordova, Tenn.--Wednesday will be a huge day in the life of four-star running back prospect Jordan Wilkins. Not only is it his birthday, he's also planning to announce his college destination out of his final list of Auburn, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt.

Not much on making a big deal out of his recruiting, Wilkins said he plans to just call the coaches at 10 a.m. and then just announce his decision.

Down to three schools, Wilkins talks about each and what they have to offer as he prepares to make his decision.

Tennessee has a lot of tradition and history," Wilkins said. "It would be fun to play in front of 100-something thousand every game, and they are not too deep at running back. That's also an in-state school so there's a lot to like about them.

"Vanderbilt is another in-state school and it's only three hours away," he added. "Their coaching staff is killing it right now. They've got that program turned around right now. My brother (Trey Wilkins) is up there. That's another thing for them.

"Auburn, just like Vanderbilt, their coaching staff is killing it. Both Vanderbilt and Auburn have one of the top recruiting classes for 2013. Another thing with Auburn is that I feel real comfortable there, just like at Vanderbilt."

With three solid choices and wanting to get his decision out of the way so he can concentrate on his senior season, Wilkins said he already knows what he's looking for and what are the most important qualities to him.

"It's going to come down to which one I feel most comfortable with," Wilkins said. "And also where I feel like I can play early and get some playing time."
