Torrance Gibson's winding college football career took another turn Thursday afternoon when Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, the JUCO school with which he signed a National Letter of Intent back in December, announced the addition of the former Ohio State wide receiver Torrance Gibson.

“I just want to win,” he said in a school release, per the Biloxi Sun Herald. “I want to learn. It’s a chance for a brand new start, to start from the bottom.”

Gibson arrived in Columbus in 2015 as a four-star dual threat quarterback and promptly moved to receiver in effort to earn early playing time. He didn't and redshirted that year.

The university then suspended Gibson for the fall semester in August 2016 for a violation of the student code of conduct. Head coach Urban Meyer disagreed with the school's decision to jettison his young receiver.

After failing to earn reinstatement, Gibson signed with Luke Fickell's Cincinnati in February 2017, with intent of earning an associate's degree from Cincinnati State in order to play this fall.

Fickell called Gibson's status "undetermined" in May, saying he was enrolled at Cincinnati but would likely redshirt after failing to earn a degree at Cincinnati State.

According to the Sun Herald, Mississippi Gulf Coast has already started its summer conditioning program and Gibson is expected to graduate in December.
