Rodney Gill is a talented guard from Faulkner State Junior College who is getting strong interest from the Golden Eagles of Southern Miss. They brought the former Theodore HS product in for a visit last week and things continued in the right direction for both parties.
"The visit was great," Gill told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"I was able to tour the campus and facilities and also meet the coaches."
Gill has been in constant communication with the coaching staff, and now that he's seen the campus and facilities up close, he's even more convinced about the program.
"It is awesome. The campus is big and nice and everyone is nice and respectful," he explained.
"The coaches told me they are looking for a guy that can come in and go get used to the game and shoot the ball very well. They are going to be in contact with me through the summer and into next season."
Gill believes an offer will be coming soon, as was discussed with the coaches as well.
"I will be able to work out on my official visit next time," he said. "I just came down this time to tour the campus."
Gill will certainly be one to watch closely through next season.
