In some circles, Wilkerson was rumored to be a Longhorn commit after tripping to the Capital City this past weekend. Did that happen? He weighs in...
"No, I didn't commit," said Wilkerson, No. 58 on our most recent Texas Hot 100 rankings. "I need to talk to my mom about it. It's something we still need to do (discuss the pros and cons of all schools in serious pursuit). I want to make sure I do the right thing."
"Yes, Tennessee and Notre Dame are both high on my list. And I'm not sure I could just commit (to Texas) without hearing what they might have to say or talking to them again."
One angle the San Antonio baller said UT possesses a clear advantage in with regard to selling the Longhorn program to him and his mother, who plays a decided role in the 3-star runner's recruitment, is proximity.
"Playing at Texas would be a great opportunity, just because of how close we are," Wilkerson said. "My mom could get in a car and drive up to see me play. And, that's something we have to look at."
Could a commitment come soon?
"Yes, it could. We just haven't really talked about it that much and we need some time to talk about it."
Don't be surprised to see something go down soon. Of course, in recruiting, you never know. But the impression I get is that an announcement on Wilkerson's college future could come as early as today, and if not today, sometime this week. And that decision appears to be a Burnt Orange outcome. Stay tuned...
