Tenn. QB is going camping

Will Gilchrist, a 6-2, 175 pound, quarterback from Savannah – Hardin High School (Tenn.) has one offer right now, but hope that will change soon. Gilchrist is receiving a lot of attention and feels he can pick up more offers this summer. He spoke about the schools he is interested in and the one school who has early offered.

Will Gilchrist reported, "Right now I have one from Louisiana Tech. I feel like I have a couple more coming pretty soon."

As far as those other possible offers Gilchrist explained, "I talked to Middle Tennessee's coach and he told me he was about ninety nine percent sure they would be offering at their camp. I talk to them a lot." He also added, "Southern Miss, and Arkansas State. I've been talking to a lot of people, and I hope to get a couple of offers."

"No, I haven't. I am looking forward to going and visiting the campus." Gilchrist said of his chance to get on campus at Louisiana Tech.

He went to say of Louisiana Tech's coaching staff, "Their coach came here and visited a couple of weeks ago. I like every coach I've talked to." He also added, "They throw the ball a lot which I like. From what I can gather football is big, it's big in the community."

Gilchrist explained, "I want a place where I feel like I fit the offense for one thing. Also I want a place where I get along with the coaches. I think I will know the place that is right for me."

As far as a timetable Gilchrist said, "I will have an idea where I will be leaning towards at the end of the summer after I go to these summer camps." He explained "A lot of people said they were going to be offering at the camp because they want to see me in person."

As to which camps he will attend he commented, "On June 1st I will be at Middle Tennessee and then I am going to Memphis, Southern Mississippi, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and maybe University of Alabama Birmingham." Gilchrist feels the camps could be the deciding factors. He commented, "I'm just going to go out and see what I like best."

Gilchrist and his Hardin County teammates just finished up spring practice. He spoke of his success this spring and said, "It was a good spring. I threw it well, and I felt my arm has gotten stronger."
