Gillette Sharp on WVU

Imhotep Charter Institute (Pa.) wide receiver Terrill Gillette is in the early stages of his recruitment, but the process has started to heat up. He's attracted attention from college coaches nationwide, yet one school, West Virginia, appears to have already made an impact.

Terrill Gillette knows it's early in the recruitment process. And even though he hasn't received an offer yet, schools have definitely begun to take notice of his talent.

"My recruitment is going pretty good," Gillette said. "I have gotten mail from Arizona, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Penn State. It's nothing major, but I expect it to blow up this summer and going into next season."

One school who Gillette is familiar with is West Virginia. The talented athlete visited WVU for the spring game and is preparing himself to visit again this summer. From everything he saw initially, he's seriously considering the Mountaineers.

"I really liked it," he said reflecting on his last visit to campus. "The fans had the stadium live. I love their fan base. Also, the coaches showed a lot of love to the recruits while giving us a tour of all the facilities."

Gillette, 5-foot-9, 160 pound slot receiver is undoubtedly intrigued by the offense of the Mountaineers. Playing a position which could showcase his abilities, Gillette is looking for an offense that could get the ball in his hands.

"I really love their style of play," Gillette said. "It's an up-tempo spread offense, and being a slot receiver I feel like it would fit in perfectly."

Though he's not close to making a permanent decision in his recruitment, Gillette does consider the Mountaineers "a top five school" as he proceeds forward.

This summer he plans to attend as many camps as possible, including West Virginia, in search of his first offer.
