Gilchrist told Scout.com's Miller Safrit that he would make his commitment to one of five schools on July 7th, but that hasn't stopped the Spartans from barging in on the party to try to secure the services of one of the East's top corners.
"My decision is going to be based off of academics number one," said Gilchrist. "I plan on majoring in computer engineering. I already did my research on these schools, so I know how I will be if I graduated from (any of his top five) with a computer engineering degree.
Michigan State is hoping for a chance to show Gilchrist their college of engineering and their facilities. If they get a last minute shot, they just might be able to 'pull the snatch'.
