Johnson was named Conference USA and FAU "Newcomer of the Year" and was ranked No. 10 in rushing yards with 767, No. 4 in total offense with 2638 yards in 2014. He also was ranked No. 8 in rushing yards for a QB in the entire NCAA during his sophomore campaign.

Wilbert, who tossed his first collegiate touchdown at Auburn, a 17-yard connection with current Washington Redskin running back Alfred Morris, served as FAU's offensive captain for every game in 2011 and 2012.At the conclusion of his junior campaign he was awarded the team's 2011 Student Athlete Award. Following his senior season, 2012, Wilbert received the team's first Endurance Award in recognition of his holistic achievement in the classroom, on the playing field, in the weight room and for citizenship.

As a prepster, he played for Larry Muir at Valencia High School, where he held a senior quarterback rating of 107. Wilbert finished his final prep campaign 225-for-360 in passing completing 64% of his passes for 2,905 yards and 26 touchdowns with only five interceptions.
