Another Wilkes Coming Up

He's the brother of current Kansas Jayhawk Omar Wilkes and the son of former UCLA and NBA great Jamaal Wilkes, and now 6-10 junior <b>Jordan Wilkes</b> is starting to get some recruiting interest himself...

We spoke with Jordan Wilkes, 6-10 JR C Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola, recently and asked him about the schools that have been showing interest in him lately.

"Stanford, Gonzaga, Washington, Oregon, UCLA, USC, UConn...those are some of them," said Wilkes.

We asked Wilkes if he had noticed any coaches recently at games or practices and he replied, "UConn sent an assistant to my school a while ago."

Wilkes said that while a lot of schools are showing interest at this point, none have made formal offers just yet.

Wilkes has been to a few schools unofficially. "I've been to UCLA a lot, USC, Princeton last September and I went to Kansas to see my brother," said Wilkes.

Previously, Wilkes told us that his GPA is around 3.5. He plans on taking the SAT in June.
