Stephon Gilmore: “Wise Beyond His Years”

Joe Person from The State has a good feature on South Carolina freshman Stephon Gilmore – click here to read the article.

For all his Gilmore’s physical skills, Johnson has been most impressed with his maturity and serious approach to the game.

“There were a lot of kids that were signed last year that had his talent level – not a whole lot, but a lot. But the kid is just different in his mental makeup, his intensity and his focus,” Johnson said. “He’s done some things this year like a 21- or 22-year-old would do, maybe getting beat on a play, and comes back and makes one of the biggest plays of the game three or four plays later.

“That’s hard for a kid that age to do unless you’ve got that kind of makeup about you.”
