"I went to Georgia Tech Saturday, and I was real impressed with the campus," said Brandon Gibson from Mobile, (Ala.). "The coaches and people I met all seemed like good people." Gibson spent quality time with the coaching staff as he continued, "I spoke to coach [Chan] Gailey for a little while. I really liked the one-on-one part with the coaching staff. They seem to be very interested in me. There were only four receivers there, and I felt like I was receiving all the attention."
"I talked to coach Buddy Geis for a while. He told me they wanted to get more film on me. I think once they receive the film then I will receive a written offer."
The time in Atlanta was short for USM-Wright's 6-2, 190-pound receiver, but Gibson plans a return visit.
"I really didn't see too much, but I thought the athletic facilities were real nice," he said. "The campus is in the middle of downtown Atlanta. It's crazy over there. I like it. I need to see more of the campus to get a better feel for them though."
Before going to Atlanta the UMS-Wright boys track team won the Mobile County Track and Field Championships Friday night at Theodore High School. Gibson placed first in the triple jump with 47-feet, 10-inches.
Gibson plans to stay home the next couple of weeks to prepare for the Scout.com All-American Combine in Tuscaloosa April 29.
