Gilmore visits Alabama
"The trip to Alabama was good," said Greg Gilmore. "It was real good. I had a good camp and learned a lot of good stuff. I met with coach Rumph. I hung out with him most of the time.
"We talk all the time. We talk about other stuff than just football. He asked what I think about Alabama. I toured the facilities. He showed me some different stuff like the coaches offices and stuff they are adding.
"Coach Saban coached me up in the one-on-ones. Coach Rumph taught me a lot of passing rushing moves. They are good coaches. They are nice to you off the field. On the field they are all about business. That's the type of coaches I have. I can relate to the constructive criticism. I am coachable."
The visit to Tuscaloosa really shifted Gilmore's thoughts on the 2011 BCS National Champions.
"Alabama is a great school," he said. "From not having any interest in Alabama to how I feel about them now I guess I just forgot about them. Maybe it was the depth chart. The camp really refreshed my feelings about them. It's a great place, and they put you in the NFL. It's really a great overall place.
"They are in my top five, probably top three. They are tied for No. 2 with Florida. LSU is still No. 1. Clemson is also in there.
"I was going to make my decision early. I may take my time with this one. My dad likes LSU. My mom likes Florida and Alabama. I will probably go back to those three schools again with my parents. I'll just have to see how I feel. I still could decide early."
