Gilliam is highly sought after, as he now has a whopping 33 offers on his resume after the Longhorns have entered the pursuit.
Michigan, Oklahoma, Penn State, South Carolina, Virginia, and Virginia Tech are all programs at the forefront of the recruitment for Giliam, so if the Longhorns are wanting to win out here they will have to beat out several programs from the region that Gilliam resides.
