Strengths: Gibson is an outstanding prospect at the quarterback position who defiantly has excellent potential at the next level. Gibson has good size for age with more development to come. He stands tall in the pocket and throws the ball with good velocity and is able to put the ball right on target. Gibson has good accuracy. He has the ability to find the open receiver and give him a catchable ball that is able to turn into a big gain. Gibson enjoys being a passing quarterback who has the athleticism to make something happen with his legs when he needs to. He has the awareness the see the rush coming after him and is able to elude the defenders with his quick decision making. Gibson is also an intelligent young man who understands reading defenses and knowing what he must do with the ball in every situation. He studies and trains all the time to be the best quarterback he can be. Student of the game that loves playing the game of football.
Weaknesses: Gibson has a lot of tools that translate into college football, but he does have areas of improvements that need to be tweaked before he reaches the next step. Gibson has good height but at 175lbs he certainly needs to gain more weight and add more muscle mass to his think frame. Gibson needs to keep working on his drop and getting into it much quicker. He has quick feet but needs to get back faster in his drop so he can have more time to find the open receiver. Gibson also needs to do some work on his throwing release. He throws the ball from a low release angle that could easily be batted down by defensive linemen anytime he throws the ball. Gibson needs to learn on how to bring his arm up to a higher angle and still be able to deliver the football on a timely pattern.
Overview: Gibson attended the NUC Louisiana 5 Star Showcase back in March and while in attendance he displayed outstanding football abilities and the potential that already has college coaches looking in his direction. Gibson as a rising junior to be left the 5 Star Showcase as the QB MVP and he says the NUC camp was the most competitive combine he has ever attended. Gibson is now heading into the summer training on the field and getting prepared to attend several camps throughout the next several months. He is generating solid buzz at this time and is currently hearing from schools like LSU, Florida and Ole Miss. Gibson is planning to attend the Ole Miss spring game on the 21st of this month and is hoping to attend as many college camps as he can this summer. Gibson is a potential filled signal caller that is looking towards a big junior year that could lead help with the future of his college recruitment.
