Sunshine state athlete ponders future

March, 28, 2012
There is no hiding the fact that athlete Reggie Wilkerson (Citron, Fla/North Marion) has long hoped for an offer from the University of Florida. But as the 5-foot-11, 176-pound Wilkerson waits on the Gators to pull the trigger, some intriguing offers came rolling in, including one from the University of Georgia while visiting Athens earlier this month.

As Wilkerson prepares to lead his team to a coveted state championship, he is not sure of what where or even what position he will play at in college -- a question his high school coaches have yet to answer. As Florida recruiting writer Corey Long writes, it is all part of the quest of an emerging athlete trying to improve on the field.
