Is He Robert Gillespie's Brother?

I have gotten asked about a half dozen times in the last few weeks about Davious Gillespie's family relation to former Gator running back Robert Gillespie. Here is the answer.

One of the most asked questions so far this season is Davious Gillespie related to former Florida running back Robert Gillespie. The answer? "I think we are distant cousins. That is what I know. People have been asking me that a lot lately."

Gillespie, a RB from Tupelo, Mississippi, doesn't have any offers yet but one SEC team is close. "I think Ole Miss is getting ready to offer. Right now, my two favorites are Florida and LSU. I like both offenses in how they use their backs. I also like Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Alabama and Memphis."

Gillespie recently attended the Nike Camp in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. There, he learned a few things. "Those Nike coaches were great. I saw some things I need to really work on and I saw how good some of these other guys are. They worked with us on speed, quickness and agility. I think that camp will make me a better player."
