Top SC Junior Making the Rounds

One of the top juniors in South Carolina witnessed two great atmospheres the past two weekends. Who is the latest team to offer the Palmetto standout? Which other top prospect came with him to Death Valley last weekend?

6-0, 180 pound defensive back prospect Stephon Gilmore visited the Sunshine state over the weekend.

"I went to the Florida game on Saturday," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "Then I went on vacation with my mom. We went by Florida. It was a big time atmosphere at Florida."

The national champs offered the South Pointe standout while he was there.

"They offered me the day before I went by the school. They took me on a tour of the campus," said Gilmore. "I already have offers from Clemson, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina State." When asked if he has any leaders, Gilmore responded, "I don't have any yet."

The two-way standout caught the end of the Palmetto state battle between the Tigers and Gamecocks on television.

"I watched a little bit at the end when I got back to the hotel. I saw Clemson drive down and kick the field goal," said Gilmore.

Last weekend Gilmore traveled to Clemson with one of his good friends who is also a talented junior.

"I was there for the Boston College game. It was a great atmosphere. Clemson should have won that game. It was as loud as I've ever seen it at Clemson. I went to the game with Devonte Holloman. He enjoyed it also," said Gilmore.

The two junior standouts have discussed playing together at the next level.

"We might. We have talked about it before," said Gilmore.

Don't expect a decision until next fall.

"I will probably wait until my senior year. It will probably be during my season. I will start to look at recruiting more that my season is over," said Gilmore.
