Watch List DB Gibson talks favorites
By Derek Tyson
ORLANDO, Fla. -- ESPN Watch List defensive back Kyle Gibson (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) had a big day Saturday. The 6-foot, 170-pound athlete won defensive back MVP at the Orlando NFTC while also earning an invite to The Opening in Beaverton, Ore.
Gibson, whom USF just recently offered, said that several schools stand out to him early on in the process.
"Right now, Tennessee, Notre Dame, LSU and Louisville are standing out to me right now," he said.
Here's what Gibson had to say about each of his favorite schools:
Tennessee: "What I like about Tennessee is that they show me the most love out of anybody. The fans show me so much love on Twitter. I feel like it's like a second home to me when I'm away from my mom."
Notre Dame: "Notre Dame has been my dream schools since I was a kid. I really like them."
LSU: "I went to the visit up there and I really liked it. Basically all the coaches treat me like family."
Louisville: "They write me a lot of hand-written letters and I really like them."
Gibson said there is one more school he would like to hear more from.
"Florida State is a school I would like to hear from," Gibson said. "I grew up rooting for them so it would be nice to hear more from them."
Gibson said he has no timetable on making a decision.
