Texas has always been a state that Mizzou has targeted and gotten a lot of very good talent out of over the years, and Friday afternoon, 2018 three-star Cameron Wilkins added his name to the list.
Listed at 6-foot-2, 234 lbs, Wilkins is a Mike Linebacker from Del Valle High School in Del Valle, Texas. The rising senior spent some time as a running back, but is believed to stay on defense at the next level.
Currently ranked as the 45th linebacker for his class, this kid is a run-stopping, hard-hitting player. Just watch a minute of his junior season highlights and immediately you see the talent, physicality and speed all on display.
This is the start of what Mizzou fans believe can be a big weekend for them on the recruiting circuit. Wilkins is one of two class of 2018 players to commit on Friday and with their Night at the Zou camp going on this weekend, there are thoughts that the Tigers might be able to grab some more commits before the weekend is over.
