Hoosiers offer 2014 RB Mikale Wilbon


Mikale Wilbon added his fourth offer -- and fourth from the Big Ten -- Thursday when a couple of programs came by Chicago De La Salle.

Indiana assistant Mark Hagen made a stop at De La Salle on Thursday, and he handed out an offer while he was there.

"He was saying I'd fit really good in the offense, and they're really good offensively," said Wilbon, who had the message relayed to him through his high school coach. "I'd be a big factor in the offense and real successful at Indiana."

Hoosiers coach Kevin Wilson previously interacted with Wilbon on Facebook, sending messages back and forth to build a relationship.

Wilson just finished his second year at Indiana, and the Hoosiers have some momentum building under the former Oklahoma offensive coordinator. Wilson orchestrated record-breaking performances in Norman, Okla., and Wilbon believes he can do the same at Indiana.

"I like the offense. I like Indiana. They're rebuilding right now but I like what they're doing," he said. "I'll eventually check them out campus wise and visit a game next year or something."

Michigan assistant Jeff Hecklinski made a stop at De La Salle on Thursday as well, and Florida, Maryland, Michigan State and Minnesota were in earlier this week.

Illinois, Iowa and Purdue have also offered Wilbon, who says the Spartans could be next following his visit from assistant Dan Roushar.

"I like Michigan State. They really like me a lot," Wilbon said. "I've been talking to them since last year and think an offer could come soon from them."
