Gibson Keeping Options Open

Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage four-star quarterback Torrance Gibson may not know which university he wants to attend yet, but he does know what he is looking for in one. His three biggest priorities are getting a good education, the campus life, and the coaches.

While Gibson is rated as a quarterback in the 2015 Scout 300 that might not be the position that he plays during his college career. He may have a higher ceiling at wide receiver or safety. No matter which position he plays he will be a wanted man all the way till signing day as he already has offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.

Gibson wasn't ready to name a top five or ten yet, but he did point out that two schools are recruiting him harder than the rest in Miami and Ohio State. Gibson will not be committing before his senior season so he has plenty of time to take visits to the schools he wants to see. Gibson has already taken a visit to Miami but he isn't sure what schools that he will be visiting during this season. One school that he wants to check out is Florida State, a school that he is still somewhat unfamiliar with.

"I don't really know anything about FSU," Gibson said. "I like there coaches and I love where the Florida State program is heading." While Gibson is looking at the three major instate programs of Florida, Florida State, and Miami, he is also looking at quite a few out of state programs. Gibson says his parents will be okay with whatever school he chooses.

"My family wouldn't mind if I go to a university out of Florida," Gibson says.

The 6-foot-4, 198-pound quarterback brings a lot to the table for his high school team. He believes that his speed and arm strength are his greatest attributes but that he needs to work on his timing with his wide receivers. Gibson has thrown for 160 yards so far this season and ran for 130 more plus a touchdown. American Heritages next game is against Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna on Sep. 20.
