Wilkerson Enjoying the Summer

The DeMatha Catholic standout DE committed to Penn State in March. He talks to Fight On State about his summer training, schools still after him and more.

In late March, Brent Wilkerson became the third commitment in Penn State's Class of 2012. Since then, he has kept pretty busy – even without the pressure of recruiting.

"Its great now," Wilkerson said. "I can focus on my senior year and it's kind of like you're back to your normal life."

He continued, "A couple schools still stay in contact with me and try to get me to switch."

Those schools?

"University of Virginia and North Carolina are the main two," Wilkerson said. "But other schools told me to let them know if anything changes because they are still very interested."

Wilkerson has no doubt where he will eventually be playing college ball, though.

"I am 100 percent committed," Wilkerson said of his commitment to Penn State. ""Coach (Larry) Johnson sends me a letter every other week, and I talk to Coach (Bill) Kenney as well as Coach (Kermit) Buggs."

Other than that, Wilkerson has stayed pretty busy this summer.

"It's good," Wilkerson said. "Just been working on getting faster and stronger and getting ready for the season with my team."

The Hyattsville, Md., standout has been working hard this summer – in order to lead his team on the gridiron.

"We are looking to have a great year and win a championship," Wilkerson said. "This year we are planning to surprise a lot of people."

Wilkerson not only plans to dominate on the field for DeMatha this year, he's also planned a visit to Happy Valley for the Alabama game.
