Gerald Wilbon Set for Texas Official Visit

The Texas Longhorns are sitting with 13 verbal commitments for the class of 2016. Texas will sign a full class when National Signing Day finally arrives the first Wednesday in February.

Head Coach Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas Longhorns coaching staff are about to embark on an epic journey to NSD.  Over the next 26 days, Texas fans will see numerous high school football players make their pledge to join the Longhorn Nation.  Texas will sign somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-14 more players for the class of 2016.

 

January 16th, 2016 could be a monumental official visit weekend for Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns. Texas could host as many as 18-20 recruits combined with official, unofficial visits and early enrolle players.  The next player tentatively scheduled for the 16th is the three-star defensive tackle, Gerald Wilbon.

 

Wilbon is ranked as an offensive guard prospect according to Scout.com but will start on the defensive side of the ball for the Longhorns. 

 

Wilbon holds offers from Texas, Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas State, Kent State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Southern Mississippi, Texas Tech, Troy, Tulane and Central Florida.   Texas is in need of some big bodies, and that’s exactly what Wilbon provides for the middle of the defensive line.  He is a true nose tackle type of a player.
