Mikale Wilbon Junior Highlights Class Of 2014 (via frederick meriweather)
The Detail: Mikale Wilbon is a 4-star RB prospect ranked in the Rivals 250 from the Chicago area who's being recruited to Tech along with his teammate, Rivals 100 OL Jamarco Jones. Wilbon is a shifty, laterally-quick, long-striding runner that reminds me a lot of Orwin Smith. He's got a strong build and makes a lot of defenders miss.
Tech's Chances: Good. Wilbon is interested in Tech, and has discussed wanting to take a visit to Atlanta (possibly with fellow teammate Jones). Jones likes a run-first offense, and is looking for a good relationship with his position coach (likely Lamar Owens). There is no leader, but he has offers from Iowa, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, and others. We'll keep you tuned on his progress.
