Former USF tight end Mitchell Wilcox is one step closer to turning pro.
Wilcox has signed with sports agency VaynerSports, the agency tweeted Wednesday.
Based out of New York and Los Angeles, VaynerSports bills itself as “the agency for the modern day athlete” and features clients such as Peyton Barber of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Leonard Williams of the New York Giants and Dwayne Harris of the Oakland Raiders.
Wilcox, who is set to participate as USF’s lone representative in Saturday’s East-West Shrine Bowl at Tropicana Field (3 p.m. TV: NFL Network | Radio: WHBO-AM 1040/SiriusXM Ch. 88) is projected to be the Bulls’ lone pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, potentially going in Round 5 or later.
Wilcox finished his USF career as the all-time leader in touchdown receptions by a tight end (11) and receiving yards as a tight end (1,326).
