Zymicah Wilkins from Christ School in Arden, North Carolina, is kicking off his summer with a bang. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward is turning heads while playing for Team United on the EYBL circuit, showcasing his skills and making a strong impression. Shedding 15 pounds since the high school season has made him more agile and dynamic on the court, evident in his dominant performances down low and his ability to score from mid-range.

Wilkins himself acknowledges the positive changes in his game, emphasizing his improved shooting and overall fitness, which has caught the attention of college coaches. With nearly 20 scholarship offers, including recent ones from Georgia, Clemson, Villanova, and West Virginia, Wilkins’ recruitment is in full swing. While he plans to narrow down his options after Peach Jam, one school he’s eyeing closely is Louisville, despite not yet receiving an offer from them.
