James Gillum can rush for 200-yards in every high school game, but he certainly has put up some lofty numbers over the past few years. The 5'11, 189-pound Gillum has carried the ball for 3,815 yards in three seasons with Pearl River. He has averaged more then 7 yards each time he has touched the football. The season James Gillum is already off to a fast start for the 2-1 Rebels rushing for 380 yards, on 59 carries and 7 TD's. The Cajun RedZone caught with Gillum Tuesday night to discuss recruiting and the 2009 football season.
On Current Offers….
Gillum- "Right now I have Arkansas, ULL, Northern Illinois, McNeese St. and Northwestern State. Coach Harris told me that ULL had offered, but I have not received anything in the mail yet."
On unofficial or official visits set….
Gillum- "Well I haven't been to any college football games yet, so I haven't taken any visits. I've been too busy with school and the football season right now, but Coach Harris and I will sit down and evaluate which schools I'm going to take official visits.
On Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns…
Gillum- "I haven't spoken to anyone from ULL recently, but I know Coach Wingerter is the one that recruited Jason Maxwell. Coach Harris said they had called and were offering me, but I hadn't spoken to them. I haven't been to the campus, but I would definitely like to go down there for a game."
On the 2009 season….
Gillum- "We are 2-1 right now, after losing to West Feliciana. But we have some good athletes and we are going too contended for a playoff position. It always hurts to lose athletes like Jason Maxwell, but we have some guys that are capable of stepping up."
Current Academic Status…
Gillum- "I don't have my score on the most recent ACT test, but I'm scheduled to take it again in October. Right now I have a 2.9 GPA in my core, but I want to improve it every semester."
