CUTigers.com watched the top junior lead the South Pointe offense to two touchdowns in the first half as the Stallions cruised to a 41-18 win over the Cavs.

With the win, South Pointe improved to 4-0 on the season.

"I ended up with four touchdowns on the night," the future four-star prospect said. "I had two in the first half and two in the second half. They were all rushing."

On Saturday Gilmore traveled to Columbia for an unofficial to watch the Gamecocks.

"I went to the South Carolina game against South Carolina State. It was alright," he said. "I had a good time down there."

When asked about his current favorites in the recruiting process, Gilmore responded, "I still don't really have any. I plan to narrow things down next summer.

"I am getting a whole bunch of letters from other schools. I am hearing from Notre Dame, Miami, Florida and Florida State."

The prize recruit could play several positions at the next level.

"Most schools want me as a defensive back. I could also play receiver. I don't really care. It depends on where they want me to play and how I fit in with the team," said Gilmore.

The top junior attended Clemson's home opener against Florida State and plans to be back in Death Valley this fall.

"I plan to get back up to Clemson for a game. I will probably come up to one of the good ones like Virginia Tech or Boston College," said Gilmore.

This week the South Pointe standout will play one of his rivals.

"We play Rock Hill this week. That is a rivalry game for us," said Gilmore. "It's big."
