Wilbon has received offers from Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Purdue, Arizona State, and Mississippi State. He's also hearing from the likes of Nebraska, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Minnesota, Iowa State, Michigan State, Arizona, Tennessee in addition to Vanderbilt. Recently he competed in the Under Armour Combine prior to the annual All-Star game and performed brilliantly.
"It was good," Wilbon shared. "I received an email saying I was top five in every event. The scouts, reporters, and running back coaches were all telling me how well I did. I think I'll have a good shot to get back and play in the game next year."
This was Wilbon's second season as a starter for the De La Salle Meteors. Even though he only played about half of it, what he did when healthy had Chicagoland abuzz.
"My injury came in the fourth game of the season," he said. "I had 863 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns before I got hurt. I was hoping to comeback and play the last couple of games of the season but my mom held me out as a precautionary measure. I'm always working to improve on every aspect of my game. I'd have to say my strengths are my speed, elusiveness, vision, and strength. I'd like to improve in the area of pass blocking. That's something I'll work on in the off-season to try and become the total package."
Wilbon was still named All-Area and All-Chicago Catholic League despite only playing a portion of the season. He said he's taking his time and enjoying the recruiting process, but is looking at school's with good programs in Business Administration. He added close proximity to the Windy City will not be a factor in his college decision.
