Tony Gillespie, a 6-foot-0, 295-pound defensive tackle from Jenks High in Okla., is easily one of the most athletic big men in the country and he had a huge season in 2007 as he helped lead the Trojans all the way to a State Championship when they knocked off their bitter rivals the Union Redskins. "It was the way that we wanted to go out," Gillespie said. "Beating Union is the best way that you could go out. It was the game that we wanted." "I matured so much from my junior year to my senior year and then I really stepped up in the playoffs. I think that I had close to 50 tackles in the playoffs alone. For the year I had about 90-95 tackles and probably 6-7 sacks." Gillespie made an early commitment to Oklahoma State, but after that fell through he has decided to take a more relaxed approach to the whole process. "I am just going to wait and talk to the coaches at my school to figure everything out," Gillespie explained. "I am going to wait for it to settle down a little and get some rest and then next week I am going to look at everything." "Recruiting has been good. It is basically the same schools as it has always been. Schools like Arkansas, Kansas State and Tennessee." "I am going to go on a couple of official visits for sure, and right now it looks like I am definitely going to try to get to K-State and Arkansas." Gillespie's former teammate Tim Dial signed with Arkansas a year ago, and the Razorbacks are a program that is in a very strong position to land the mammoth defensive tackle despite the fact they are in between coaching staffs. "Arkansas is a good school," Gillespie began. "I sat down with my head coach and he told me there is no reason that I should rule out Arkansas just because of the coaching situation because they have a great campus and great facilities. "Arkansas is probably still at the top for me right now."
