But Toquavius Gilchrist has been drawing recruiters to his town of 5,840. One of the top running backs in South Carolina, Gilchrist said he grew up a Georgia fan, but is still waiting on an offer from the Bulldogs.
“I was born and raised to love Georgia, and I hope that they offer,” he said.
Georgia, however, has two running backs committed and reaching out of state to get one may be the Bulldogs’ hold up. Still, Gilchrist says Georgia stays in touch. If the Bulldogs want him, though, they will have to best an old rival
“Clemson is my only offer right now,” he said. “Right now I am thinking a lot about Clemson. I have visited there and it was real exciting up there.”
Another ACC school, North Carolina, wants Gilchrist to visit, and he thinks he will get an offer out of that. The Tar Heels, Bulldogs and Tennessee will get a visit this summer from Gilchrist in the form of him participating in their camps.
“I am going to camp at Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia,” Gilchrist said. “Tennessee has started recruiting me a lot more lately, so I am going to take a look at them, too”
Still, Clemson tops Gilchrist’s list. The Tigers remain the only team to offer him, but he admits, two old rivals could be in for a fight if the Dawgs offer the running back.
“If Georgia offers it would be close at the end,” he said.
Gilchrist indicated that he wants to pick a school before fall.
