Wilder Jr. highlightsClick Here to view this Link.
School: Tampa (Fla.) Plant
Buzz: Wilder has the size and ability to play linebacker but the speed and passion for running back. Wilder Jr., who plans to play at Florida State next season, wants to be a running back at the collegiate level and he stands out in the backfield at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds. The power back makes an impression immediately upon arrival with his size and body-builder physique and there isn't a better-looking prospect at his position stepping off the bus.
