|Wednesday, February 4, 2015, 8:35 AM- -|
Wilkins is the consensus number one prospect in the state of Connecticut and most recruiting services have him ranked as the #4 to #6 defensive tackle in the nation.
As a senior, he had 71 tackles, 4 forced fumbles, 22 tackles for loss and 8 sacks.
Wilkins was impressive in the Under Armour All-American game in January with four tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack, and a blocked PAT that he returned for a touchdown.
Wilkins had offers from most of the big names in college football including Alabama, Auburn, FSU, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Stanford and Tennessee.
So happy that I'm now officially a part of the Clemson. Blessed to have signed my letter and looking forward to the next 4 years #WeTooDeep— Christian Wilkins (@cwilkins42) February 4, 2015
