Downingtown (Pa.) Downingtown West offensive guard Elijah Wilkinson has snapped up his first two scholarships. The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder discussed them as well as the significant interest picking up for him.
"I got an offer from James Madison two weeks ago and then it just happened on Wednesday, Delaware State came by and told me they had offered," he said. "I know a little bit about JMU, but not that much. I used to live in Delaware, so I know a bit about Delaware State too."
In the meantime, other schools are intrigued.
"A lot of schools have come in including Old Dominion, Penn State, Delaware, Syracuse, Temple, Bowling Green, Maryland, Rutgers, Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Villanova, Pittsburgh and Tulane," he said. "They are all saying the same thing, come to camp. I can't make all of their camps though."
Has Wilkinson scheduled any camps?
"I'm definitely going to Virginia Tech on June 3rd for their camp," he said. "I'm definitely going to Michigan State on the 17th too. Most likely I'll be at Maryland's camp and then probably two others in July.
"It sounds like all the schools want to see me move, that's basically where they are with me."
Wilkinson earned all-league and third team all-state honors last year.
