DB Stephen Gilmore (6-2 195) of South Pointe has made his college decision and wants to reveal the choice. The problem has been finding the right day to do it.
Originally the plan was to announce the decision this Friday. But because the Saturday papers would be filled with stories on the Friday night high school games and previews of the Saturday college games, Gilmore's father, Steve, said Wednesday night the decision was made to go to another day next week.
"We want it to be his day," Steve Gilmore said.
The day chosen next was Tuesday of next week, but Gilmore said that's not going to work either because the Wednesday papers will be dominated by coverage of Steve Spurrier's and Tommy Bowden's news conferences from Tuesday.

So, Gilmore said they have now settled on next Wednesday as the day for the announcement. The news conference will be around noon at the high school gym according to Gilmore.
Stephon Gilmore is not taking any visit this weekend. His father said he made the decision from among USC, Alabama and Tennessee, the three schools to which he made official visits.
