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 Scout.com that he intends to ask out of his letter of intent.
"Yes I am going to ask for my release," said Gibbs via text.
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 Scout.com 2011 rankings Gibbs is listed as a three star prospect and the No. 32 player at his position.
