His recruitment has been a strange one for a while but it may just be a couple months from coming to a close

He's planning on taking only a few official visits, and he's also trying to get to Ohio State before the end of this month. His 7 on 7 team is scheduled to be in Dublin sometime within the next two weeks for a Football U camp, so lets see if he makes the trip.

Any news on how Joe Burrow is doing? Rather hear updates on him than this kid, juuuust being honest. I'd be willing to bet he doesn't make it up to Columbus even if he is in Dublin.

Who could blame him? 18 minutes is an absurdly long drive.

Seriously if he's in Dublin and doesn't make a visit….We know what it is then. Period end of this strange story. So tired of hearing about him.

I'm not tired of hearing about Gibson, and I'm not concerned with his attitude. Everyone matures differently, and he's a hell of an athlete. If Urban wants him, so do I.

Good point but it is hard to figure what's up and down with this kid. It does appear he has matured some lately.

Thats what I am saying!

Muck Fichigan that is all.

How many of you can i sucker into betting me large amounts of cash he doesnt?

My concern with Gibson is we end up like that team up north the last three or so years with a wide receiver playing QB, Highwire is right though about if that is what Urban wants.

At this point, you still accept a commitment from a 5 star talent. The difference now is we don't chase him, but make him chase us. With only 12 commits, we have the luxury to sit back and recruit others and see what Gibson does. If he visits and shows a serious interest, then you recruit your ass off. If he doesn't, no big deal.

just my 2 cents anyway...

You don't make him chase you, a much much softer way of putting that might be closer to the truth. They don't go all the way to recruiting their asses off yet that much we agree on.

He is really tight w/ Kalil McKenzie that committed to the Vols...he will be a Vol when it is said & done

He will also be a WR when it's all said and done. I also read that UT is now recruiting him as a WR which should put Auburn in the drivers seat.

To me, it's very simple - would Gibson help us get closer to winning the B1G and a National Championship?

IMO, yes, yes he does. Therefore, I'd love to see him be part of this class, particularly to see Tennessee fans go absolutely berserk.

I'm not an expert on tape but I wasn't impressed by it. But I will say, the lack of a top 10 QB commit I think has hurt this class overall. I think other players follow the QB's (like Christian Kirk leaning to A&M because of Kyler Murray). So, there's a part of me that hopes they do snag Gibson, if only to turn the tide on other weapons.

And you know THIS....man!

He tweeted the he'll commit on October 20th. I honestly believe all of the coaching staffs are telling him he can play QB but plan on moving him to WR at some point.

That's the week of the Tennessee-Alabama game, fwiw.

Can't embed from my phone but the original tweet I saw about him committing on Oct 20 he mentioned OSU, WarEagle, and Vols. I just saw another tweet where he mentioned committing and said OSU, Vols, and LSU. I'll kind of be glad when this saga is over.
