One of the campers coming thru Clemson earlier this month was DB Zyon Gilbert of Montgomery, AL. He and some teammates worked out for the Tigers the day after camping at USC thought they got to Clemson late and didn’t get the full exposure. Gilbert has a Gamecock offer. Clemson hasn’t offered yet but told him he will be checked on this season. “He (DB coach Mike Reed) really loved me. He just wished he had more time to spend time with me. He liked my size and height and how smooth I am when I back pedal and he likes the way I cover. He wants to see me play live in a game.” Gilbert said he has camps coming up with Texas, LSU and possibly Florida. He said he continues to hear from USC.
RB Jalen Holston (5-11 200) of Stockbridge, GA came thru USC’s camps earlier this month and earned an offer from Will Muschamp. Holston said the Gamecocks will get considerable consideration. “I like how they are really close to my family. I’m up in Columbia a lot so being there would be great for my family. I think I would fit perfect in their offense. They need a running back bad and I think I would be the guy to carry the load for them. They like my size , vision, ability to break tackles, the speed I have to be as big as I am, and how I’m a north and south runner.” Holston also has offers from Duke, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Mississippi State, NC State, West Virginia and Vanderbilt. He also camped at Virginia Tech, Duke and Georgia. He rushed for 1503 yards last season.
DB Dreshun Miller of Marietta, GA, who drew some interest from USC last recruiting season, never signed and is enrolling this fall at Palmetto Prep, a postgraduate program in Columbia. The Minutemen will play their games at Brookland-Cayce High School.
