Gibbs making his own name
It was an excellent week at the Nike Peach Jam for Temple Gibbs. The class of 2016 combo guard showed off his ability to score the ball and also his feel for the game. Already the youngest of the three Gibbs brothers has significant college interest coming his way. At 6-foot-2 with a great shooting stroke and solid ability, Gibbs has made himself into one of the better guards on the East Coast in his class, and now he is looking to finish out the summer very strong while improving his game. “I have been working on my one dribble pull up, shooting from three, and making sure I take the right path getting into the lane and making the right pass,” said Gibbs. The youngest of three Gibbs brothers, Temple has been on the recruiting radar for a while given the success of his older siblings Ashton (Pittsburgh) and Sterling (Seton Hall). Now Temple is making a name for himself and attracting major interest. “I have most of the local schools like Seton Hall, St. Peter’s, Virginia, Townsend, Miami, South Florida, and UAB talking to me a lot,” noted Gibbs. His brother Sterling is still at Seton Hall, and Temple says he likes the direction that the program is headed. “I think they are going to have a good year this year,” said Gibbs of the Pirates. “They have some high-major players and with Isaiah Whitehead coming in I think they could surprise some people.” Virginia has also been very active in recruiting Gibbs, and Gibbs thinks highly of the ACC program. “I like that they have a beautiful campus and great academics,” said Gibbs. “Also Coach (Tony) Bennett seems like a player’s coach. I have gotten to know him and we have a good relationship.” At this point there is no timetable for a decision. Gibbs is currently viewed as a four-star prospect, the No. 13 point guard and the No. 71 player overall in the 2016 class.
