Wilson becomes fifth early enrollee
By Pedro Moura
As expected, Corona defensive end DeVante Wilson officially enrolled at USC on Monday as the fifth early enrollee in the Trojans' 2012 recruiting class, the school announced.
Wilson, a 6-4, 235-pound defensive end, originally signed with USC last February and was set to enroll at the school for the 2011 fall semester, but he tore ligaments in his knee and gray-shirted while recovering.
He was a 2010 Prep Star All-American as a senior at Corona High, recording 59 tackles with 9.5 sacks. As a junior in 2009, he made 84 tackles and 2 forced fumbles.
Wilson becomes the fifth 2012 recruit to enroll early with the Trojans this year, although all five are not confirmed to be on campus and taking classes. The other four players are linebacker Scott Starr, offensive lineman Chad Wheeler, safety Gerald Bowman and defensive lineman Morgan Breslin.
