Wicker is currently undecided and considering schools such as Texas Tech, Arizona State, UCLA, Notre Dame, Miami (FL) and Oklahoma.

Scout Eval: Wicker is a versatile lineman with the ability to play inside or outside at the next level. He moves all over the line for Poly and depending on how much weight he puts on, could play multiple spots in college. He’s strong and can take on blocks, hold his ground and has powerful hands to disengage as well. He's stronger in run support than he is as a pass rusher and needs to develop a little more quickness but the upside is there. - Greg Biggins

Quotable: "Most schools tell me they like me for either defensive tackle and three-technique or defensive end. I will go where I feel at home. How comfortable I am with the school and the coaches and the players. And, the degree." - Joseph Wicker

Those selected will play in the annual East vs. West match-up on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The game will be televised live on NBC at 1 p.m. EST and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
“Joseph and all of the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl players were selected not only for their ability on the football field, but also because they demonstrate mental, emotional and physical toughness – similar strengths to those of our Army Soldiers,” said Mark S. Davis, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing. “We are pleased to welcome these talented athletes to this year’s showcase of athleticism, teamwork and excellence and we congratulate each of them on their selection.”
