Now pushing his timeline back again to August. I have a feeling he is waiting on that Clemson offer.

This guy seems like your typical "diamond in a rough". I don't know much about Cane Bay High School but I don't think they've had much success in producing D-1 level football players. Maybe that's why he hasn't been noticed. Sounds like that's changing quick like.

I can understand schools from further away not knowing about RJ but NC State, Wake Forest and GT have offered. The Gamecocks offered a full month ago.

The fact that Clemson hasn't offered yet should tell him he is not priority #1 for them.

Yup. Here's more explanation on his timetable and thought process, too:

it's going to be a long few years watching the shine of that natty dwindle away. Hopefully there will be some mismanagement somewhere, because I def don't think talent will be their issue moving forward until something shakes up the program (i.e. Dabo leaving, which I could only see for Bama right now).

We're still leading from what it sounds like and until that changes I'm almost positive he ends up in Columbia. As for that school up north, screw them. They're always going to be a pain in the ass natty or no natty so I'd say our coaches need to focus on doing everything in their power to promote a positive, thriving image of our program to counteract the tater media which seems far too prevalent in our state. This upcoming season will pay dividends for us in recruiting. Watch.

I'm confident that if we produce wins we can start keeping a grip on some bigger players. Just stinks to see most kids would rather jump straight into the limelight than build something of their own - even the kids that pulled for us growing up.

He did not push back the date due to hoping for a Clemson offer, he just realized he had more time for the early enrollment paperwork.

If he goes to Clemson, it is because he wants to be a RB. And it is saying something that Clemson is in the hunt for RBs big-time - maybe they are thinking "we ain't too deep" at that position?

Just how it is nowadays. Athletes want the best possible route to get attention from pro scouts. All we can do is keep building and shut everything else out.

Just a really good athlete but is not specialized at HS. Will need a year or two of development possibly to learn a position.

One of those guys you just get him signed and in school and then find a spot for him.

He is planning on EE, so he will have the head start on converting to safety. If I remember correctly, Gilmore was a QB in high school.
