Gilliam Looking To Add More

With the summer camp season heading into some final camps, Ohio 2016 defensive back Tobias Gilliam is looking to add more offers to the two he already holds. caught up with Gilliam about his plans the rest of the summer.

A lot of eyes will be watching Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne defensive back Tobias Gilliam this fall.

With two early scholarship offers from Bowling Green and Toledo, Gilliam is looking to add a few more before the camp season ends later this month.

“Hopefully, I’ll get more offers from here on out,” said Gilliam. “I now know if all else fails, I can attend college for free with the two offers to play Division One football that I already have.

“But I’m going to Alabama this weekend and going to visit before their camp. They said they are going to be recruiting me hard and Ohio State has said they are going to offer me too if I do well at their Friday Night Lights camp later this month.

Miami Ohio said they are going to be there and will be looking to offer me and then I’m also going to Penn State for this camp. So hopefully, I can add a few more offers before the summer is over.”

Gilliam knows with more college interest, he must take his game up another level.

“I’ve got to go 110-percent on every play,” he explained. “I cannot take any plays off as my coaches and I have talked about the fact colleges will look for reasons not to recruit you. So I can’t let me not going hard be a reason for them not to recruit me over somebody else.”

Part of his development going into this fall will also come from taking more of a leadership role.

“My coaches and I have talked about that,” he said. “I’ve been playing varsity since I was a freshman and I’m been on the field enough to be more of a vocal leader. “I’ve always been kind of a laidback and goofy guy, but my coaches want me to be more vocal and be more of a leader.”
