is rated #2 recruit with the chance to contribute early and make an impact.

Considering Clemson essentially lost just about everyone in its two-deep at defensive tackle, Wilkins is not only a welcome addition, but one Tigers coaches and fans expect to make a splash. Wilkins proved at the Under Armour All-America Game that the jump in competition was not going to be too steep. He adds more height than Clemson has had and is a disruptive player on a consistent basis. (via ESPN.com)

As a senior, Wilkins had 71 tackles, 4 forced fumbles, 22 tackles for loss and 8 sacks. Wilkins was impressive in the Under Armour All-American game with four tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack, and a blocked PAT that he returned for a touchdown.
