Gimel President: "I like them a lot"

With his first verbal offer already on the table, 2012 Wando High DE Gimel President talks about that offer, upcoming camps, and other schools he's interested in. Already high on the SCPrepNation.com radar as one of 2012's top prospects in the Palmetto State come inside to find out President's thoughts about the very latest.

Wando defensive end Gimel President made an impression on us after reviewing his highlight tape from his sophomore season. The 2012 standout hit the road over the weekend to camp with the North Carolina Tar Heels and the results were beyond his expectations.

"I spent most of my time with Coach John Blake and some other defensive coaches. We ran 40's, ran some shuttles, did a lot of individual work, and one on ones. He taught me some things that I will take back with me and work on."

President says he felt like he had a solid showing while in Chapel Hill working out for the staff. What happened prior to his departure caught him somewhat off guard.

"As soon as we were about to get ready to leave Director of Player Personnel Marcus Berry extended me a verbal offer. I was surprised at first. It felt really good though, real good! They said they liked the way I use my hands and feet during the workouts."

Asked if the fact that the Tar Heels were the first school to offer if that would carry any more meaning than other offers that might come down the road he replied, "It will mean a little more to me because I really like the school a lot. I got a chance to see some of the school while I was there too."

Recently he finished camping with South Carolina last week and has camped with Clemson during their last two camps he says. Both in-state schools are programs that he'd like to hear a lot more from in the near future. As of right now Maryland and North Carolina are showing him the most interest. He'll be camping with Maryland in a couple of weeks and very well could be getting some good news there once the staff is able to see him workout in person. Right now President says he is 6'3 1/2 and weighs 236 pounds.

While the Tar Heels obviously lead since they are his only offer President says, "I'm still wide open I'd say. I will probably wait until National Signing Day my senior year to make a final decision."
