Plyler on Gilchrist: "Gilchrist is another big highlight in this class at what turned out to be a huge area of need because of C.J. Gaddis leaving for the NFL and Byron Maxwell's injury. I think he is going to have the kind of impact that Crezdon Butler had as a true freshman. He has everything you are looking for at corner and is also a terrific kick returner."
