DeMatha tight end-defensive end Brent Wilkerson, who committed to Penn State in March, is reconsidering his options and will take an official visit to Nebraska this weekend, according to Stags Coach Elijah Brooks.
Wilkerson, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound senior, also has been contacted by Oklahoma and is considering a scholarship offer from the Sooners as well, Brooks said. Penn State remains an option for Wilkerson, noting that the player will consider the Nittany Lions after they hire a new coach.
“He’s open to recruitment,” Brooks said. “He’s still undecided. He’s going to take a visit to Nebraska this weekend. They stayed in contact and Nebraska is a place that interests him. He’s still weighing his options, but he’s going to see what Nebraska has to offer.”
Nebraska has just one Washington-area player on its roster, former Quince Orchard defensive end Jason Ankrah, who started nine games this past season. Another Quince Orchard grad, John Papuchis, recently was promoted to be the Huskers’ defensive coordinator.
Brooks also said that offensive tackle Rico Webb, a 6-7, 330-pound senior, recently picked up a scholarship offer from Grambling.
