Tarpon Springs tight end/defensive lineman Mitchell Wilcox picked up an offer from USF, his first from a state school.

Wilcox, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound senior, is now up to six offers. The others are Ball State, Charleston Southern, James Madison, Miami of Ohio and Samford He said he expects to get another one from UCF when he a attends a one-day camp at the school June 14.

This past season, Wilcox was a force on both sides of the ball with six catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns on offense and 23 tackles and six sacks as a defensive end. Last week, Wilcox had two catches for 38 yards in a spring jamboree win over Northeast.

Wilcox, a two-sport star, said he will concentrate on football rather than basketball this summer so he can attend camps and possibly pick up more offers. He will still play basketball for the Spongers once football season ends.
