Wilkerson is Third to Pick Lions

Brent Wilkerson racked up nearly 20 offers. But all it took was one more trip to Happy Valley for him to decide that he wanted to commit to Penn State. Fight On State has more of his reaction to his big decision and becoming the third member of PSU's Class of 2012.

Sometimes you just have to pull the trigger. Just ask DeMatha Catholic High DE/TE Brent Wilkerson.

"I wasn't planning to commit," Wilkerson said through a text. "But I loved it so much."

He arrived in Happy Valley this weekend with an open mind toward his decision yet left as a Lion for life.

"It feels great," Wilkerson said. "I love everything about Penn State from the education, to coaches, to football."

Is he relieved?

"Yes," Wilkerson said.

And of course, Wilkerson couldn't break the news without the element of surprise.

"I went to Coach (Bill) Kenney, and he thought I was saying goodbye," Wilkerson said. "But I told him I was committing, then I told everyone else."

Fight On State will have more on Wilkerson and his commitment coming up soon.
