S Wilcoxen Liking West Coast Schools

Redlands (Calif.) East Valley safety Tre Wilcoxen updates FOX Sports NEXT on his recruitment, his summer plans, and more.

Redlands (Calif.) East Valley safety Tre Wilcoxen has jumped right into the recruiting process, as he attended both USC and UCLA Junior Days.

"Recruiting has been good. I went to the USC Junior Day and it was really fun. I talked to a couple of the coaches and they wanted to see where they could put me, that kind of stuff, which was a really good feeling. The school was awesome," he said.

Wilcoxen was also a fan of the Bruins, telling West Coast analyst Brandon Huffman that he was able to spend some time talking with the coaches.

"Coach (Demetrice) Martin showed a lot of interest in me and said they could use me at corner and safety as well. He said to be patient about an offer because it could come any day," he said.

Aside from these programs, Wilcoxen, who is hoping to stay on the West Coast, has a few other schools he is interested in.

"I'm also interested in Stanford, Oregon, Washington, Oregon State, and San Diego State," he said. "I'm looking for a good education for when football is eventually over. I'm also looking at the environment, because that's where I'll be for the next four years," he said.

The safety is planning on taking a few trips during the off-season, but isn't exactly sure yet as to where he will be visiting.

"I'm probably going to take a couple of unofficial visits but I just don't know where yet; I have to talk with my parents and make a schedule. I do know that I'm definitely heading up to the Oregon camp in June," he said.

Aside from taking those visits, Wilcoxen will also be putting in extra time training and improving on his player skills.

"I've been putting in a lot of time with weights and working on my footwork. I've been going out to B2G Instinct Training Camps and it's a good experience; it's worked so far. I'll also be doing the whole 7on7 circuit," he said.

Overall, Wilcoxen has one goal for the off-season: to increase his visibility and get more looks from universities.

"I'm trying to work on everything, just perfect all of my skills and keep working hard. Off-season is one of the most important parts in the recruiting process so I just want to get my name out there as much as I can. " he said.
