Gilbert Planning Officials

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we caught up with the A&M Consolidated defensive end Jimmie Gilbert from College Station, Texas. He has some schools that have been heavily recruiting him. And because of that, he will be scheduling an official visit those programs in the near future…

He has few offers going for the moment, but College Station (TX) A&M Consolidated defensive end Jimmie Gilbert has his eyes set on a couple of programs out of the bunch. That's not to say that the selected schools are favorites, but more so a gauge of serious interest.

And that is where his focus lies and those will be the schools that will more than likely see him on campus this fall.

"I'm planning on visiting Colorado and Tulsa for sure. I have not yet set the date so nothing is official," Gilbert said. "For me, these are the schools that are showing the most interest. I want to show those coaches the same respect and go and see their program."

Aside from the schools mentioned, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound Gilbert also said that Iowa State is a major player in his recruitment as well. Most of the schools want him as either a defensive end or more as a hybrid outside linebacker type. For Gilbert, there is not really a preference.

With the work he has put in this past off season, he should be good to go either way.

"This past summer I work a lot on my coverage in the flats. I also lifted as many times as I could to gain more weight," Gilbert said. "I fractured a bone in my eye so I did as much as I could."

Gilbert said that his team is coming in ready to work as they look to make a major push through the postseason. 

"Hopefully, we can get to state," Gilbert said.
