From the original commitment article:
Wilkins boasted offers from Purdue, Texas Tech, and a host of high-caliber mid-majors. The 6’2, 234-pound middle linebacker was an all-district performer at this 6A school, and I’m guessing his low- to mid-three-star rating (per the 247Sports Composite) has to do with either high-end athleticism or his potential as a DE/LB tweener (too big for LB, too small for DE).
It might be hard to get a read for his overall athleticism watching his highlight film, but the film does show one thing pretty clearly: the dude really, really likes to hit. That, plus the fact that the staff has liked him for a while, says pretty good things.
Welcome, Cameron. Can I call you Cam? Welcome, Cam.
