Wilbon's Best Visit

Wilbon's Best Visit

Chicago De La Salle (Ill.) class of 2014 running back Mikale Wilbon saw Ohio State and says it was his best trip yet.

Chicago De La Salle running back Mikale Wilbon had a big junior year and currently has offers from Illinois, Purdue, and Iowa. One of the other schools recruiting him is Ohio State, and he spent the weekend there with teammate Jamarco Jones, an offensive tackle with a Buckeye offer.

"Amazing," Wilbon said of his visit. "By far the best visit and best game I've ever been to. Me and Jamarco went Friday and Saturday and it was the best experience, probably my number once experience so far."

Wilbon saw the Buckeyes take down rival Michigan, and he noted their play on the field, but he said it was not just one thing which made the trip what it was.

"It was basically like the die hard fans, the coaching staff, the team was very family oriented and when we toured the campus, I liked the campus too. It was a big campus. There were quite a few factors for me that made it so good."

He also had a chance to talk to the Buckeye coaches about where he stands with them.

"I talked to Coach Vrabel, Coach Meyer and Coach Drayton. I talked to Coach Drayton, the running backs coach, a lot. He's saying he's going to do his homework on me and they're coming for me, referring to an offer, so an offer might be coming in the future."

Wilbon says he does not have a top list of schools right now, but a Buckeye offer would mean a lot.

"I'd really put them in consideration, not that I wouldn't with any other school. They'd be up top, no favorites, but I'd put them up real high."

He would also like to continue to run behind Jones in college if possible.

"Oh yeah it's a possibility. Of course, he got his offers early on and I might get more this time, spring and summer time, but we talked about it and it's a good possibility."
