Reggie Wilkerson, a fast-rising defensive back recruit, committed to Georgia on Saturday while visiting Athens for the Bulldogs' spring game. Wilkerson is a consensus four-star recruit. He stars for Citra (Fla.) North Marion High School. Wilkerson is excited to join Georgia, as he told the AJC:
"I picked Georgia because it feels like family," Wilkerson told the AJC. "I have great chemistry with the coaches and I've bonded well with the players."
"It feels like home to me. I feel this is a place where I can come in and compete for the starting job on first day."
Wilkerson is 5'11" and 175 pounds. He has recently earned offers from Georgia, South Carolina and Clemson after some impressive off-season work and the circulation of his highlight tape. Wilkerson has excellent length and would seem to be a fit as a boundary corner in any number of systems. Georgia now has 15 commitments in the class of 2013.
Florida and Florida State may offer soon, and if they do, it will be interesting to see just how firm Wilkerson's commitment is to the Bulldogs.
