Nathan Gilliam (6'5, 275, 5.3) plays Offensive Tackle at Farragut High School in Knoxville, Tennessee. His lone offer is from Kentucky, but gaining interest from Duke, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

Gilliam tells AllWildcats.com where Kentucky stands in his recruitment and what his spring plans. "Kentucky has a great coaching staff. Means a lot to me when UK assistant John Schlarman offered me and recruited me from the beginning of my recruitment. In fact Kentucky is in my top 5 with Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Duke and South Carolina," Gilliam said.

Gilliam will be on campus soon, at Kentucky and will be camping elsewhere down the line.

"I'm planning on attending Kentucky Junior day on February 15th, then camp at Tennessee, Duke, Georgia Tech," continued Gilliam.

He discussed the factors that will matter most in his college decision.

"I'm looking for a program that will fit me academically and I want to go to a program with a chance to earn playing time," he continued.

Nathan explains why several programs are becoming interested in him.

"I bring athleticism at the offensive tackle position, with having great feet. I'm currently playing basketball to keep improving my footwork," he finished.

Nathan is going to make his college decision at the end of his senior season.
