Wilkinson Holds Three Offers

Coming off an Ohio Division-II state championship, Trotwood-Madison is one of the top talent-producing programs in the state, with several highly-rated prospects. Verondtae Wilkinson now holds three offers and the 2014 defensive end is looking for more.

Trotwood-Madison is clearly one of Ohio's top talent-producing schools, in both the 2013 and 2014 classes, and the Rams are coming off a state championship in Division-II.

One of the top younger prospects is 2014 defensive end Verondtae Wilkinson, and the 6-foot-3, 235-pound, athlete already has attracted three offers to date.

"I'm excited to have offers from Illinois, Toledo and Kentucky," Wilkinson stated. "I'm in the process of trying to learn more about each school, since I really don't know too much about any of them. I plan on visiting all three of them this summer, and I haven't seen any of them yet."

"I'm excited to have schools checking me out and I'm looking forward to getting more offers," he added. "My coach told me a lot of other schools are asking him about me, but I really don't talk to too many schools, more just a short meeting at the high school when they visit. I know Pittsburgh is very interested and they recruit our school pretty heavily. I would love to hear from Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan, and schools like that."

Wilkinson burst onto the scene last season as a sophomore, and was a key contributor to Trotwood-Madison's state championship. He also showed well last weekend in Columbus at the Nike Football Training Camp.

"I think I did pretty well at Nike, but it wasn't my best camp," he explained. "It was great being around that many talented players, and it forced me to step up my game. I'm working on becoming a better player, and also concentrating on trying to win another state championship."

He is the nephew of former NFL overall top draft pick Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkinson, who also starred collegiately at Ohio State.
