Willow Park (Texas) Aledo defensive tackle Michael Wilcoxon may not have been on many folks recruiting radar going into the U.S. Army All-American combine, but he likely will be now. He turned in what had to be one of the top five performances by a defensive lineman and dominated some of the camps top offensive lineman.
"UTEP, Arkansas, Houston, TCU, Missouri and a lot of the Ivy League schools have been sending me stuff," Wilcoxon said. "Most schools are looking at me as a defensive tackle, but one school told my coach that they like me at defensive end after they saw my film."
The 6-foot-2, 260-pound Wilcoxon runs the 40-yard dash in 4.85 seconds.
"I went to a couple of TCU games this year and UTEP and Houston invited me to one of their games, but for some reason the mail was late or something and I didn't get the invite until after they had already played the game. I want to check out some junior days here coming up soon."
As a junior Wilcoxon accounted for 78 tackles and one interception.
"I want to go to a school that is in a good town where there is plenty of stuff to do. I want to go somewhere that I will get a good education and that has a good program. I am still open to a lot of schools right now, but TCU, Texas Tech, Arkansas, UTEP and Houston are some of my favorites."
