Sometimes playing in west Texas makes it hard for a high school player to be seen. It was not hard for this 6-3 295 pound defensive/offensive lineman lineman from Lubbock Monterey. The bigtime talent committed to the Baylor Bears, and BearsIllustrated.com was able to catch up to him.

"I am committed. Baylor is a good school. The coaches are real cool," said Joe Wilbourn.

Wilbourn made an impression at the Scout.com/Under Armour combine held in Valley Ranch, Texas as he performed very well in drills. The bigman currently plays defensive line, but that could change as he gets to college, as he is projected as an offensive tackle.

Wilbourn believes that his ability to "go heads up with a lineman" is his biggest strength on the football field. Wilbourn also showed good agility and footwork when he tested in early spring.

The big west Texas visited the Baylor University campus on Friday, and made his commitment after returning home to Lubbock. Although Wilbourn explains he might likely take another visit or two, he is committed to the Baylor Bears.
