A Conference USA school will be the beneficiary of an experienced lineman leaving the Texas football program.
As a graduate transfer, Wilbon will be eligible to play immediately for the Bulldogs in 2020. The upcoming season will serve as his final season of eligibility.
Wilbon was a three-star member of the Texas football Class of 2016. He was the No. 36 player regardless of position in the state of Louisiana.
Wilbon appeared in 36 games during his time with the Longhorns, starting one of those contests. That lone start came during his true freshman season. The 2018 second-team Academic All-Big 12 lineman has been credited with 19 tackles and a fumble recovery.
This past season, Wilbon appeared in just three games at UT.
Wilbon will be the fourth Power Five transfer added by Tech this offseason. The others?
- LSU offensive lineman Donavaughn Campbell (HERE)
- Virginia Tech safety Khalil Ladler (HERE)
- Tennessee receiver Jerrod Means (HERE)
All three of those additions, incidentally, to satisfy NCAA transfer bylaws. Current NCAA transfer bylaws, it should be noted.
