Malik Gilmore remains committed to Oregon State and is not thinking about backing off his pledge but Arkansas has begun to show interest in the Lakewood, Calif., wide receiver and he said he wants to learn more about the school and possibly take a visit.
Gilmore, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound four-star prospect, said he doesn't have any dates yet for a possible trip to Arkansas but he would like to meet with the Razorbacks before National Signing Day.
"I've never been down there before so I'd like to go down there because I think it would be something to see," Gilmore said. "I'd like to see how things are down there.
"It's very exciting to hear from them. They've been sending me stuff and it's a really good school and I'm excited to learn more about them. I'm trying to go down there to check things out and see how it goes."
Gilmore was supposed to take an unofficial visit to UCLA on Saturday with Lakewood teammate Darius Powe for the Bruins' upset victory against Arizona State but Gilmore couldn't make it. There is a chance he could go to see UCLA at some point.
The Lakewood receiver said he also wants to visit Utah and also see where Powe plans to take trips and consider going to those places as well.
An official visit to Oregon State is slated for later in November and he's definitely looking forward to getting up to Corvallis.
"I'm still solid to Oregon State," Gilmore said.
"I just want to get out and see other schools just to confirm my commitment. I just want to see what other schools have to offer. For right now I'm sticking with Oregon State."
Arizona State, Colorado, Duke, Michigan, Notre Dame, San Diego State, Utah and Washington are some of the other teams involved with Gilmore, rated No. 46 at wide receiver in the 2012 class and No. 37 in the California state rankings.
