Wilcox chose the Falcons over reported offers from Ball State, CMU, Cincinnati, EKU, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Ohio, Toledo, and Western Michigan.
He currently attends Wayne high school located in Huber Heights, Ohio and stands at 5-foot-10, weighing 185 pounds.
Wilcox is rated a 3-star recruit by 247Sports and Scout. He is considered a top 200 wide receiver in the class of 2017 by 247Sports.
It is safe to say that the coaching staff at Bowling Green was fired up to hear about Wilcox's commitment.

Wilcox is a bit undersized, however is very skilled out of the slot. He definitely is talented enough to play for a power 5 program so all in all, this is another solid pick up for the Falcons. It will be intriguing to see how Wilcox pairs with the two quarterback commits in this class, Chris Katrenick and Jarret Doege.
Hustle Belt has reached out to Wilcox for comment on his commitment, and will update this story as necessary.
