B-Ball Profile: Corey Gibbs

We now turn the focus to the hardwood, and F Corey Gibbs. Gibbs currently has a top 5 that includes the Clemson Tigers and he is hearing from a whole range of schools, including Alabama, Cincinnati, North Carolina, and Georgetown.

Corey Gibbs is an explosive athlete out of the Atlanta area (Pace Academy) that has a whole host of schools knocking on his door.

One of them is the Clemson Tigers.

During Corey Gibbs' latest interview he named his new top five which includes "Alabama, Cincinnati, Georgetown, UNC and Clemson." "These are my top 5," says Gibbs.

Gibbs is was a Georgia All-State player as a Junior last seasn, he has a 35" bertical jump and averaged over 20 ppg as a junior.

It has been speculated that N.C. State may have him as a key target, but according to Corey that may not be true. "They may have their team set already cause I am not hearing from them."

Even though he has visited UNC and NC State unofficially, he will did so again this past week at a tournament in the Research Triangle area.

Corey continues to work on his outside game. "I am working expecially hard on my ballhandling" Gibbs said, "My shot has improved as well".

Corey has the game and potential that colleges love. He's a relentless worker on the inside but he is improving his perimeter game as well. As it is now, he is a little short for the traditional 4 spot, and his outside skills are not quite ready for classifying him as a true 3.

He made a name for himself at the Nike camp last year when he hit medium-range jumpers, attacked the glass and used his explosion off the ground to make his presence felt. He appeared hungry and that translates well with college recruiters.

Dave Telep from TheInsidersHoops.com interviewed Gibbs and asked him about his improving perimeter play, "I'm trying to fit it into my game. That's the biggest improvement. I'm shooting more and a lot more comfortable than last year. We've got a big guy and he can stay down low and let's me play on the wing. It's the four, but I'm stepping out and shooting."
