The Dawgs offered Wilkerson early in March and UGA stood out to him right away.
"I liked it up at Georgia as soon as I got there for the first time. I have a good connection with the coaches, I feel at home when I am there, and it feels right. When they officially offered me, I was excited, and I have been thinking about Georgia a lot since then."
The 5-foot-11, 165 pound cornerback out of Citra (Fla.) North Marion has worked hard to get to this point in his life and he is proud to be where he is.
"It is like a dream come true to be committed to Georgia. I never thought this was going to be possible for me when I was growing up, but the coaches saw something in me, and they kept pushing me. I just kept working, staying on my school work, and I got here."
He knows where he wants to be the next four to five years though.
"I knew I was ready to commit to Georgia because there is no doubt in my mind that I want to be a Bulldog," Wilkerson said. "I don't want to keep waiting because Georgia could lose interest in me. I am 100-percent committed to Georgia and I want to start recruiting other prospects to Georgia."
Wilkerson will graduate North Marion in December and enroll at UGA in January 2013. He expects to play cornerback at Georgia and to get consideration for the punt returner spot.
