A prospect to watch in the Class of 2012 will be defensive lineman Brent Wilkerson (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha). The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder knows all about attention because his teammate is Cyrus Kouandjio, the No. 1-ranked OL in the 2011 class, and he's seen college coaches from coast-to-coast come through the doors at DeMatha.

"It's definitely been an advantage for me and my teammates having Cyrus getting all the attention," Wilkerson said. "Coaches that came to look at film of Cyrus also got to see me and my teammates on film and in person.

"I already have scholarship offers from Virginia, North Carolina State, Rutgers and Delaware have offered me a scholarship. I went to Rutgers for their junior day and that's when they offered me a scholarship. I have plans on attending other junior days like Penn State, Georgia Tech, Boston College, LSU, Michigan State and Oregon.
