DB impressed with UGA's season

Reggie Wilkerson is a standout defensive back prospect from North Marion High and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

"Everything is going good and I got one goal -- get a ring," Reggie Wilkerson said about what's been an emotional start to his senior season. "It's going ok. This is my last year of high school and every time I think about it it's like I'm not gonna see these guys I grew up with all my life. It really hurts me inside but UGA makes me feel like home. I'm trying to get some guys up there from my team so I can still have that connection."

Wilkerson, 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, committed to Georgia a few months ago and remains committed to the Dawgs.

"UGA will be there in Atlanta this year again," he said. "Our defense is great even though we're missing key guys. When they come back it's gonna be even better. Offensively I didn't know we had so many weapons at wide receiver this year. Those guys can play and Murray is doing his thing. If the O-line gives him time like in the Missouri game watch out Alabama cause we coming for ya!"

Since his commitment to UGA is so firm, all but two other schools have backed off in their recruiting efforts.

"UF told me I could come see some games so I can see my cousin play," he said. "And USF so I can see my former teammate Sean Price."

Wilkerson finished his junior season with 750 yards of offense and six touchdowns. On defense, he logged 30 tackles and one interception.

As a Prospect: Wilkerson was an excellent two-way player last season. He was very productive on both sides of the ball. He could be a BCS-caliber wide receiver but his best position in in the secondary. He'll likely start out at corner but could end up being a free safety down the road. He plays with good instincts. He's a good athlete. He makes plays. He's a strong student. He has a lot of tools and you can see why he has the major offers that he does.
