4-star RB Wilkins weighing options

Two more offers arrived last week, and it's getting to the point where four-star running back Jordan Wilkins of Cordova (Tenn.) St. Benedict can't even remember how many he has.
"Honestly," Wilkins told Rivals.com," I'm not sure. I think I'm at 19."
Nebraska was the most recent to pull the trigger.

"Nebraska came to my school Friday," Wilkins said. "That was the first time I ever talked to them and they offered me on the spot. I don't know much about Nebraska, but I told them I'd try to make it up there this summer."
Earlier in the week, Auburn offered, and the Tigers already appear to be firmly in the mix. When asked Sunday which programs stood out, Wilkins replied, "Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Vandy, Ole Miss and Tennessee."
"Auburn stopped by last week and I met [assistant Curtis] Luper," Wilkins said. "We talked later and he was saying they really liked me as a running back and I moved up to their No. 1 spot. He was saying he wants to have a close relationship with me. He said he doesn't redshirt players. He was talking about if I got to Auburn, the first game of my freshman year he'd put me in the first quarter just to get the butterflies out of my stomach. I had a good time talking to him and that's definitely a place I want to go visit."
According to Wilkins, he spoke with Tigers head coach Gene Chizik a few days later.
"I talked to Coach Chizik after our scrimmage Thursday," Wilkins said. "He was telling me about how excited they are about me, and hopefully they can pull me off. He saw my film and said he hadn't seen Coach Luper so excited about a running back the last couple of years. That was pretty good hearing that from them. They're definitely up in the top. It's an SEC program and I think I can come in and help."
Michigan is another school Wilkins hasn't visited yet, but wants to see.
"They came by last week," he said. "They've talked to me about how they want to change their offense after [quarterback] Denard Robinson leaves. They want to go to a pro-style offense, and they need a big back like me, a bigger back that can run inside but still has the speed to get outside. They offered a few months ago, but I didn't think much of it. But now some of my family up north have been talking about it. I definitely want to visit there. I'm going up there to visit my aunt this summer. She said she'd take me there."
At this point, Wilkins said he's still pretty wide open.
"I'm just kind of taking things in," Wilkins said. "I still think there's going to be more offers. I want to get it over as soon as possible. I'm just not going to make a decision until I'm 100 percent about it."
