Commitment Tracker: Sam Gibson
"This season we are doing all right," said Sam Gibson. "The offense is doing better. The defense is doing their thing. My season is going all right. I have had a few back-to-back 100-yard games."
"We are bouncing back. We have some playmakers in the game. We have Will Jones. He scored four touchdowns in the last game. They are starting to play him a lot."
"We play Wetumpka this week. There's going to be 10,000 people at the game. Demopolis beat them."
"Practice has been going good. They are treating it like it's a play-off game. We haven't been doing too much contact. We are watching a lot of film. We don't want to have any errors. It's been more focus than anything."
Gibson planned to travel to Baton Rouge for the SEC opener against Vanderbilt, but will make another trip in the near future.
"I was supposed to go last weekend," he said. "I plan on going to one of the upcoming home games. I know I am going down for the Florida game."
"I talked to coach Porter the other day. He called to check on me. They write me handwritten letters all the time. They encourage me and stuff like that. I mainly talk to coach Cooper."
"I think they are doing pretty good. They have to find out their identity. They have to have a balanced offense. Once they get it going they are going to be good. Their defense is pretty solid. They are going to pick it up. They are going to be a national contender."
Gibson was recruited by the Tigers as an athlete with a couple of options on the next level. He has received a little help from a teammate who will play for another SEC school.
"When I go down there they will look at the depth chart," Gibson said. "I am mainly going to be a receiver or safety. I think I could play receiver real good. DB [defensive back] is natural to me."
"One of my best friends, Nick Perry [Alabama commitment], taught me a lot of stuff about being a safety. He is one of the best safeties out there. I learned from what he was doing. He will teach me certain things that I don't know. He is trying to help me out a lot and doing a great job."
Gibson plans to take other official visits, but Baton Rouge is where he expects to call home for his college career.
"Kentucky was the last school that started gaining interest," Gibson said. "I am going to visit a few schools, but I am not going change my mind. I will probably visit Kentucky, Stanford and Virginia."
