Previously, Wilkerson played with the Montreal Expos, Washington Nationals, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, and Toronto Blue Jays. He bats and throws left-handed.

He was the MVP of the World Junior Baseball Championship, pitching a three-hit shutout against Taiwan in the gold medal game and hitting .360 with three home runs and eight RBI for the tournament, leading Team USA in homers and RBI. A two-time first-team All-American, Wilkerson led Florida to the College World Series in 1996 and 1998 with both his hitting and pitching. The Gators went to the College World Series, where Brad hit a dramatic grand slam to beat state rival Florida State.
