Scholarships are starting to roll in for Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson defensive end De'Jon Wilson. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder claims four offers at this time including one from the Big East.
"I just received an offer from Toledo the other day," he said. "I've got offers from Rutgers, Marshall and still hold a Temple offer."
Toledo came into the picture due to a friend, while the other scholarships came last month.

"The funny thing is Alonzo Russell committed to Toledo and he's been talking to their coaches inquiring about me," he said. "Rutgers and Marshall offered in February. I like Rutgers; I think they are a pretty good program. I like their defense and defensive coordinator. I think I'd fit in at Rutgers. Also I know their defensive line coach used to coach with Bill Belichick, it would be an honor to play under him. Also their program has been successful.
"Marshall is cool. I like their program too. They are family-oriented around Marshall."
Plenty of other schools are checking out Wilson including Tennessee, Alabama, Michigan, Syracuse, Boston College, UCLA, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
Are any visits coming up for the D.C. end?
"I plan on a couple spring games," he said. "I know I'm trying to go to Virginia Tech's spring game for sure to see Ricardo Young and Adeboye Aromire. I would also like to go to Rutgers to see how their spring game is and perhaps Marshall and Temple as well."
Wilson is reluctant to name leaders at this point in time.
This past year, Wilson posted 57 tackles, 33 for loss and 21 sacks while earning first team all-metro and league defensive player of the year honors.
