He chose the Tigers over an offer from Virginia Tech.
As a junior, Wilkerson recorded 151 tackles with nine tackles for loss while earning All-Region honors.
Wilkerson was on hand for the Tigers' weekend team camp before deciding on a commitment.
The South Carolina native is expected to debut as the No. 9 player in the state in Scout.com's upcoming player rankings. He is also listed ast the No. 75 player in Scout.com's East Coast Region.
