Gibbs intends to ask for release

Sterling Gibbs could be the first casualty from the Gary Williams' decision to resign.

The news of Gary Williams' sudden decision to resign took the college basketball world by storm, and already there is fallout. One of Williams' prized recruits has decided he would like to look around.

Maryland was hoping to rebuild their backcourt with a talented 2011 duo of Sterling Gibbs and Nick Faust, but now that is in a bit of doubt. Gibbs confirmed via text message with that he intends to ask out of his letter of intent.

"Yes I am going to ask for my release," said Gibbs via text.

Gibbs initially committed to Maryland in April of 2010 over interest from Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Virginia, Seton Hall, and Florida.

At 6-feet tall, Gibbs is a very good shooter from the point guard position. He is in the mold of his older brother, Ashton Gibbs, who stars at Pittsburgh and is currently weighing his NBA Draft options.

In the final 2011 rankings Gibbs is listed as a three star prospect and the No. 32 player at his position.
