Four new offers and a visit for Wilder

A player starting to see recruiting hit full stride right now is L.A. Pierce CB Howard Wilder (6-0, 185) and he recently hauled in four more offers and has set up his first official visit...

"I got new offers from South Florida, Arizona State, Nevada and Kansas," Wilder told recently. "I've set up a visit for USF in a couple of weeks (December 1st)."

In addition to his most recent offers, Wilder already had offers from the likes of Fresno State, Hawaii, Maryland, New Mexico State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Utah State.

As a freshman last season, Wilder was a starter for College of the Canyons and started every game, posting 49 tackles and five passes defensed.

This season, while starting at one of the corner spots for the Brahmas, Wilder has totaled 41 tackles, one interception and five passes defensed.

Wilder hails from Maryland and was heavily recruited after a solid senior season, but he was unable to qualify so he decided to head to California to play some JUCO football.

"Out in California, especially Southern California, that's where the best JUCO talent is," Wilder said. "I knew coming out here I would face a lot of really talented guys every day in practice and then every week on the field.

"In order to be the best, you have to compete against the best and that's what I love to do -- compete."

Wilder is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.
