Manny Wilkins is getting more excited about his recruitment and rightfully so because some major programs have stopped by in recent weeks to see him throw in person.
The more coaches see Wilkins, a three-star quarterback from Novato (Calif.) San Marin, the more they like him and that seems to be the case with one of the newest programs involved in his recruitment - Texas A&M.
"I thought they were really cool," Wilkins said. "Coach (Jake) Spavital was supposed to come out with coach (Jeff) Banks but I guess his flight got messed up. They were pretty impressed and another coach is supposed to come back down to check me out.

"It was really cool. It was cool for a Texas school to come out because that was my first interest from a school from Texas."
Another program that came out to see Wilkins was Arizona and that was especially important because the Wildcats have already offered the 6-foot-3, 185-pound quarterback who looked good recently at the NLA 7on7 in Las Vegas.
Arizona, Colorado State, Utah State and Wyoming have offered so far and the Wildcats are definitely under serious consideration. However, Wilkins is not ready to commit just yet and he appreciates that the Arizona coaches have not pressured him to this point.
A commitment, though, could come before his senior season.
"That's one thing they've told me - they're not going to push me at all to commit," Wilkins said. "They would love for me to commit but they're not going to put that stress on me. They said I'm one of their top guys and they would love to have me and if I do choose to commit they would love it.
"I'm just waiting everything out. I would love to commit sometime in the early summer. That way I don't have to spend thousands of dollars on trips but we'll see how it goes. I'll probably take a couple trips here in the beginning of next month to get my head wrapped around a couple things and see where that takes us."
