San Antonio's career rushing leader Wilkerson to play at UIW

Chad Peters - Express-News

At last, Jerrell Wilkerson is back in football.

And the city’s career rushing leader will make his comeback — initially, at least — at wide receiver.

Ending speculation that first surfaced last November, the former Clark running back, who hasn’t played in a game since his senior season of high school in 2004, was admitted into the University of the Incarnate Word on a football scholarship Thursday.

He is expected to report with other players on Aug. 19. Drills will begin Aug. 27 at the new Benson Stadium on the UIW campus. The team is expected to play its inaugural season in the fall of 2009.

Wilkerson, who hasn’t been in football since 2005 when he was a member of the Texas Longhorns, will be the biggest name on the Cardinals’ roster.

Wilkerson back in football

by's Tim Griffin

After a record-setting high-school career in San Antonio, Jerrell Wilkerson once was presumed as one of the top recruits to come from the city in recent years. After accepting a scholarship at Texas and starting a redshirt season in 2005, he was considered a player who could help the Longhorns in the future.

Wilkerson abruptly quit school only a couple of weeks before the Longhorns' national championship game victory over USC without playing a down to return home. He hasn't played since then.
