Posted Jan 17, 2006

Aledo defensive tackle Michael Wilcoxon showed out at the recent U.S. Army All-American combine. He dominated in one on one drills against some of the top offensive lineman from around the nation and is beginning to garner interest.

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."
