Wilkerson returned last season but played just one game against Troy, but now seems to be making his move.
The 5-foot-11, 181-pound Citra, Fla, product played with the first-team defense at the star nickel back position in Saturday's scrimmage, free safety Dominick Sanders said. Wilkerson registered four and a half tackles.
Tramel Terry had six tackles playing cornerback on the second team.
“He looked pretty good,” Sanders said. “He’s a more physical player. He’s got the right mindset and he’s got 100 percent effort every time he touches the field.”
