"I cancelled my Illinois (12-13) official visit," said wide receiver, cornerback Ryan Gilliam.
"It was just a gut feeling. My mom made me realize just how cold its going to get in Champaign. When it gets down to 50 degrees here in Tallahassee, I'm freezing. There were some other factors. I liked the Illinois coaches but I don't want to go to a school just for the coaches."
"I also spoke with a few players who played for the Illinois coaches and that also had a part in my decision."
Gilliam, 5-foot-10, 170-pounder, from Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln is a three-year varsity starter with 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash.
We asked Gilliam if his visit schedule besides Illinois had changed.
"I'm going to visit Oregon (12-13) instead of Illinois." Gilliam said. "Everything else is the same. I'm going to Clemson (1-10), Florida (1-17), Georgia (1-24) and Florida State (1-31).
"Oregon has been recruiting me for a long time and I want to see what else is out there. I live two minutes away from Florida State and I've seen every other school that's on my list. I want to check out all my oppurtunites."
"They (PAC-10) throw the ball all over the place in that conference and that's great because I'm a receiver and a cornerback. It makes sense for me to visit Oregon.
"I can't name a leader right now. I'm so indecisive. I'll just take my visits and try to look for the best fit."
