Multiple major programs have already offered 2020 ATH Arik Gilbert

College Park (Ga.) Woodward Academy athlete Arik Gilbert is one of the premier 2020 prospects in the country and he spoke with Scout about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Arik Gilbert will be one of the most highly recruited prospects in the 2020 class.

Alabama and Georgia are recruiting him hardest and he gave a quick thought on each school.

Alabama: "They win every year and always compete for national championships," said the 6-foot-5 ½, 242-pound Gilbert. "I've been talking to coach (Derrick) Ansley and he's cool. He treats me like family every time I visit and always introduces me to players and coaches."

Georgia: "It's close to home and coach (Kirby) Smart also treats me like family. All the coaches always know my name and talk to me when I visit. (Running backs) coach (Dell) McGee is recruiting me and we have a really close relationship."

NC State was the latest school to offer.

"I actually watched them play once on TV last fall and like their playing style," Gilbert said. "I don't know much about them yet, but I'm going to try to visit sometime this spring or summer."

As for where he'll visit next, Gilbert mentioned Clemson and Florida Gators
