North Carolina DT Xach Gill Has UCLA Visit Plans

June 1 -- North Carolina defensive tackle prospect Xach Gill talks about his recruitment, and how UCLA figures into it...

Wake Forest (North Carolina) High School four-star defensive lineman Xach Gill has seen his recruitment explode this spring.

"I have I believe 17 total offers," said Gill.  "NC State, Wake Forest, Mississippi State, UNC, Tennessee, UCLA, Penn State, and Pittsburgh... that's some of them.  

"I've been able to visit the local schools this spring and during the season I visited Florida and Georgia.  I definitely want to take more trips."

One of the schools that Gill has visited the most is NC State.  Just minutes away from his home, he is very familiar with the Wolfpack.

"It's a family-oriented place," he said.  "I love the campus and the coaches, and the players are all great.  Coach Kitchings is recruiting me for them, and we talk a lot. We do have a strong relationship."

The 6-foot-5, 280-pounder plans on taking trips to UCLA and Penn State by the start of the season, and he has a plan in place for narrowing down his list.

"I'll probably announce my Top 10 right before the season," he said.  "The schools I talk to the most... on a weekly basis I talk to UCLA, NC State, and Mississippi State."  

What will Gill be looking for in a school when the time comes to make a decision?

"I'll be looking for how I can impact," he stated.  "I also will be looking at the academics and what is the best fit."
