Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph Regional defensive tackle Kevin Wilkins is ready to put recruiting behind him and focus on bringing his national-ranked program to a state championship.

Wilkins will officially visit Rutgers today before announcing his choice between the Scarlet Knights, Connecticut, Maryland, Boston College and UCF.

"I'm excited," Wilkins said. "I'm looking forward to committing because it's a big moment for me. I've worked really hard to get myself in a position where I can do this. … I'm ready to do it."

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive tackle ranks in at No. 75 in the class of 2014 at his position and is a three-star prospect. Wilkins told Scout.com he already has his mind made up, but wants to take a final visit before making his decision public.

"I'm going to give my all," Wilkins said on what he brings to the table. "I didn't play defense my whole life, but I guess [my finalists[ see something great inside me. When I get [to college] and get on track, I'm going to bust my butt. I'll try my hardest."
