Jalen Wilkes Profile

A little over a month ago we introduced 2015 Greenville wide receiver Jalen Wilkes who had plenty of early interest from various schools across the region. It wasn't long before the talented prospect got some good news.

"Elon University offered me," Wilkes said.

So how did it feel to finally land his first scholarship offer?

"Well deserved! Coaches have been coming to the school pretty much everyday. It's a routine in the morning to meet one and after lunch one more! Feels weird knowing somebody want to pay for my college to see me ball out for 4 years on the next level."

Some of the schools that have been in contact with Wilkes since our last update with the Greenville prospect include Clark, Auburn, Clemson, Florida A&M, Presbyterian, and Lenoir-Rhyne.

"Alabama came to the school and invited me to their camp in July free of charge."

On Friday Wilkes visited Elon, Lenoir-Rhyne, and Wofford. The 2015 prospect says Towson called while he was taking those visits.

An in-state program is starting to show pretty strong interest as well Wilkes informed us.

"Charleston Southern is showing some pretty strong interest. I have spoken with Coach Korn quite a bit and like what they have been saying."
