Winter Park (Fla.) Trinity Prep kicker/punter Eric Wilbur might be the state's top prospect at that position this year and he recently attended three camps around the state. After the camps Wilbur has two offers and it appears two more schools will soon be following suit.
FlaRecruiting.com recently caught up with Eric to see what's been going on this summer.
"I went to a one-day camp at UCF," Wilbur said. "That went real well. I went to the Florida camp for three days and that went really well. I had a great camp. They said that they would be offerering me sometime soon. They're debating offering me as a punter, kicker, or defensive back. I went to Miami. I didn't do as well as I would have liked in that camp. I strained my hamstring running the forty the first day. I wasn't expecting anything from them but they offered me. It's a verbal offer, I haven't gotten anything written yet. And I just found out from my coach today that Notre Dame is going to offer me."
Wilbur previously received a written offer from the University of Central Florida. He said most schools like him as a kicker/punter but some might give him a chance at safety. He believes Notre Dame's main interest is as a K/P.
After attending three camps Wilbur doesn't believe he'll attend any more camps this summer.
"I think I'm done," Wilbur said. "My toenail just fell off so it's kind of hard to kick a ball right now. I think I'll just have to take it easy over the rest of the summer."
Eric Wilbur previously said Miami, Florida, and Florida State were his favorite schools but he is now taking a wide-open approach to the recruiting process.
"I have no clue who my favorites are," Wilbur said. "I'm keeping everyone in the mix. I probably will commit early but not for another month or two at least. I'll just wait things out and see how it goes."
Now that Notre Dame and some other out-of-state schools are entering the picture, is Wilbur going to seriously consider going out of the Sunshine State?
"I don't know," Wilbur said. "Some of the schools who are jumping in now have great traditions and they're all top-notch schools. I'm really confused now. I have no clue what I'm going to do. I'm just going to kind of sit back and let the cards play."
