Gillam is averaging 10.5 tackles a game through the first two games of his career. He is the only player in the conference averaging double digit tackles per game to this point.
Needless to say, it's a pretty impressive start for a true freshman. Gillam became only the second player in CU history to start the season opener as a true freshman at inside linebacker earlier this month.
Gillam joins wide receiver Paul Richardson among Buffs leading the Pac-12 in statistical category. Richardson leads the conference in all-purpose yards per game and receiving yards per game with 208.5 yards per game in each category.
