Gill Camps at FSU and Florida
Navarre (FL) High School tight end/defensive end Christian Gill who has two FBS scholarship offers is camping at both Florida State and Florida this week. According to Gill he received offers from Old Dominion and UAB during spring practice this past May. He is also hearing from about 30 different schools on a regular basis that have yet to offer. Some of those schools include Auburn, East Carolina, Florida, FSU, FAU, LSU, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State, UCF, Southern Miss and Vanderbilt. The 6-foot-3 and 240-pound tight end prospect for the Seminoles and Gators camped at FSU yesterday and will be on Florida's campus today for camp. "Florida and Florida State are recruiting me as a tight end and pretty much the rest as a defensive end," said Gill. The west Florida prospect stood out on a muggy Tallahassee afternoon and seemed to enjoy himself at camp despite it being the hottest day of the year on the FSU campus. Even after an almost three hour camp session Gill volunteered to be tested in the 40-yard dash and standing broad jump. "I think I did pretty decent at camp today. We did a few drills and a lot of the guys were dropping out, I didn't drop out. We did some one-on-ones and I made a couple of good plays. I think I did pretty well. Coach Brewster (FSU tight ends coach Tim Brewster) said I did well. I had talked to Coach Pruitt (FSU defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt) on the phone a bunch before this camp," said Gill of his FSU experience. The two-way standout grew up watching both FSU and Florida and seems to be taking the recruiting process in stride knowing much can change between now and next February. "Recruiting is going good; I am hearing from about 30 schools and have talked on the phone to about half them. There is nothing real serious going on other than the two offers right now." Look for more updates on Christian Gill as the summer camp season continues.
