CUTigers.com caught up with the Clemson commitment after the impressive victory.
Shrine Bowl linebacker Julius Wilkerson helped lead Gaffney to a come from behind 33-32 victory over Summerville Saturday afternoon to win the Big 16 state championship. "It feels great to win the state your senior year. It can't get any better than this," Wilkerson told CUTigers.com after the game.
Gaffney trailed by 19-points at one juncture, but the Indians came out and fought back in the second half.
"Coach talked to us in the locker room. He said we got to come back out strong. He said we can never give up," he said. "We never gave up. Coach told us to keep your head up and something can happen. Look what happened."
The Palmetto standout still has more football to play this month as he will be playing in the Shrine Bowl where he plans to do some recruiting for the Tigers. "I haven't really been doing much recruiting (for Clemson), but I will do some of that at the Shrine Bowl," Wilkerson added.
Wilkerson, who remains firm with his verbal commitment to the Tigers, will also take his official visit to Clemson in January.
