Trio of ACC rivals in hot pursuit of Xach Gill

2017 defensive end Xach Gill of Wake Forest High School in North Carolina may be playing alongside one of the country’s best defensive prospects, but the 6-5, 270-pound junior is quickly earning his own well-deserved reputation.

A consensus 4-star recruit, Gill is listed as the No. 16 defensive tackle nationally and No. 3 prospect in North Carolina in the 247Sports Composite. Rivals ranks him the No. 6 strong-side defensive end in the country, as well as the No. 5 junior in the Tar Heel State. Rivals also lists Gill in its early Rivals 250 of top 2017 prospects. He comes in at No. 162 overall.[hr]
