WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) - Four months ago, Eric Wilcoxson signed to play baseball with Three Rivers College. But a lot can change in four months.
The Walnut Ridge multi-sport standout kept his recruitment open, and it paid off Tuesday morning. Wilcoxson signed a baseball LOI with Arkansas State. He earned All-State honors this season, helping the Bobcats reach the 2A state semifinals. Wilcoxson played last week for the East in the AHSCA All-Star Baseball Game.
Eric joins Jonesboro High's J.D. Rainwater as Region 8 players in ASU's signing class. Like J.D., Eric was pretty good in football too. He was an 2012 All-State running back for the Bobcats, also earning a spot on the FFN Superteam.
Sum it all up, and ASU gains another athlete that could be in the lineup for the 2014 season.
