Decatur (Ill.) MacArthur junior wide receiver prospect Marques Wilkins (6-foot-1, 192 pounds) has added a few new scholarship offers this week.
"I've received a few new scholarship offers this week," Wilkins said. "Indiana offered me a scholarship yesterday and so did Southern Illinois University. I also basically have an offer from Stanford, the Stanford coaches are just waiting on my test score before they can offer me a scholarship."
Wilkins is excited about his latest round of offers.
"Indiana has been sending me mail forever it seems. I've never been to Bloomington but I've heard some really good things about the campus and the school. It's always good to get an offer from the Big Ten schools like Indiana. I'm also glad that SIU has offered me. I'm just grateful for every offer and opportunity these schools have allowed me to have this early. Stanford is another school that has so much to offer academically. It's all good."
Wilkins has also drawn phone calls this week from both Notre Dame and Michigan.
"Rob Ianello from Notre Dame called me on Tuesday night, and we had a really good discussion. Notre Dame is definitely interested and they are really trying to get me to their camp this summer."
"I actually just got off the phone with Coach (Andy) Moeller from Michigan. He called to talk and wanted to let me know that he was making an in school visit on Thursday. Michigan is also very interested and they also want to see me in camp this summer."
Wilkins is hoping ti have his summer camp plans finalized in a week or so.
"We finish school on May 26th, so I'll have a chance to work out pretty hard before I hit some summer camps this summer. I'm still sorting things out from a camp standpoint and I'll have a better idea of where I'm heading for camps in a week or so."
