It can’t be overstated what a big deal this commitment is for us…not only is Gibson an uber-talented CB but we also just went toe to toe with the defending national champion and beat them for a recruit they legitimately wanted
Great pickup regardless. But not a single mention of him on the UGA board by anyone. Didn't seem to be on their radar tbh. And that's fine...they're recruiting on a different level rn. He still has 5-6 big time offers. 4* quality offer list and speed for days. Exactly what we could use for now.

Time for him to turn up the heat and flip his DT teammate away from the home team....... They could car pool and everything, I have honestly not heard a thing about their relationship..... anybody got anything?
They’re in an open relationship. Committed but seeing other people.

Gibson told us prior to his public announcement that Willie Martinez continues to deliver with getting DBs to the league, and that was vital in his decision. Gibson has an extremely high ceiling that Martinez should enjoy working with in Knoxville. He is a long, physical cornerback with naturally fluid hips that can excel in press coverage situations. He has a natural nose for the football, and his time as a wide receiver in high school has helped him develop solid ball skills. He will likely line up on the outside for the majority of his career at Tennessee, but he is versatile enough to line up as a nickel and be effective. He will get early opportunities once arriving in Knoxville.

Impact Rating: 9 of 10
This is a big recruiting win for Tennessee. Gibson has freakish traits. He ran a laser 4.38 forty-yard dash and had a 41.5" vertical jump earlier this summer. He is still very untapped in potential at the cornerback position, but he has all-SEC upside. Georgia prioritized him which should tell you a lot. Willie Martinez will be able to mold Gibson into the ideal cornerback this system covets. Gibson is not only an excellent player, but he provides a recruiting win in the state of Alabama at a powerhouse school. This is a significant boost to an already solid defensive class for the Vols.

I honestly don’t care what their fans think of this…fans are stupid…they’ll blow something like this off because of something silly like his star rating…the UGA coaches clearly wanted this kid as much as anyone on their board and they gave it their best shot to get him…I think it’s a great sign that we got him despite their best effort
