Folks, it's a good day when you catch back up with a high school kid JC-bound, only who is now projected to emerge as a stud on the D-I stage after taking care of business in the JUCO ranks... And, make no mistake, if this kids goes to the right team, right situation, he could blow it up as soon as he makes his D-I college debut.
Quite a few things have changed since then. Kid is now sporting a rock solid, 5-foot-9, 190-pound size/speed package, with sub-4.4 forty speed, not to mention play maker credentials.
In his first season of JC Ball the Coffeyville Community College blue chip tailback shredded JC defenses earning JC All-America accolades. While Guillory always boasted break-neck speed and play making ability, he did not boast the size he is currently sporting now, adding a good 15-18 pounds of muscle weight, making him one of the most feared tailbacks in all of JC football...
JC True Freshman Stat Package: "136 attempts, 1,251 yards, over 8 yards per carry and 16 Total TDs."
So who is he digging right now, who has offered, and who might be coming with a ship(s) soon?
"Right now I have offers from Kansas State and Oklahoma State and I also have been in touch with both Florida and LSU, two schools who have shown a lot of interest, and they're both recruiting me pretty hard," Guillory told Scout/KStateFans.com.
Thoughts on his Top Four?
On the Cowboys: "Just the school, the coaches, the players, everything about OSU, and what they can offer me."
On the Wildcats: "Mostly the same thing I just said above. They're both in the Big 12 and have had success with JUCO players and transfers. And the Big 12 is the second best conference in the country. You do well in the Big 12 and you have a chance to get drafted really high."
On the Tigers: "SEC, SEC, SEC."
On the Gators: Again, the same thing as above. The (SEC) conference is so good that if you can play well there, you can play in the NFL."
Commitment Time Frame: "I'd like to take as many (official) visits as I can because I need to research the teams offering me a scholarship (Oklahoma State and Kansas State), learn as much about them, and maybe even take a couple more (official) visits, probably to LSU and Florida. I want to take my time. And I want to make sure I choose a school I can make a major impact at. So I will be looking at the depth charts, chances of playing early, etc."
