Wilcox Set for Busy Summer

Pleasant Grove defensive back prospect LeSean Wilcox is aiming to stay busy this summer with a full slate of camps. Having played almost every position a year ago in high school, Wilcox aims to make his way playing defensive back at the next level. TBS caught up with Wilcox this past Monday.

"I want to camp everywhere this summer," said LeSean Wilcox. "I want to go to as many camps as I can: BYU's camp, Utah's, [and] I want to go to some out of state camps as well."

Jackson hopes to receive scholarship offers from major schools by showing his wares as various summer camps. The 5-foot-10-inch, 180-pound defensive back feels that he has what it takes to make it at the next level.

"I played everywhere in high school," said Wilcox. "I played running back, receiver, corner and safety, but I'll play cornerback most likely in college, which is my favorite position anyway."

Indeed, Wilcox showed well a season ago while playing primarily at running back. He rushed for more than 600 yards on 95 carries, but defense is where Wilcox thrives.

"Oh, man, I love to hit," said Wilcox. "I'm not afraid of nobody. I never back down and I feel like I can hit and drop anyone in the open field. I'm a very defensive- minded player."

Early on, Wilcox is receiving a big stream of letters from PAC-10, SEC and Mountain West Schools. He said he would love to play in the PAC-10, but has no problems at all staying and playing locally.

"My favorite schools are USC and Cal," said Wilcox. "I like USC a lot, but I love Cal. I'd love to play for Cal at the next level."

Wilcox has been impressed with BYU and would love to join BYU's team, which he describes as a team that is rising.

"I'd definitely love to play here at BYU," remarked Wilcox. "I like it here a lot and the program, man, they're getting better every year."

Wilcox claims a 4.43 forty time and suggests that whatever school offers and then signs him will be getting a hard-nosed, athletic defensive back that is capable of a lot.

"I'm not the biggest guy - too small to play running back - but I have what it takes," said Wilcox. "I work hard and I have a good mindset. I'm fast, I'm strong and I'm confident that I can stay with anyone. I'll just have to prove that at camps now."
