Gibson: Obeying His Heart

Immediately following Thursday's press conference, Daniel Gibson sat down with Phog.net's Thayer Evans and gave us the details surrounding his decision.

HOUSTON--Moments after Daniel Gibson gave his verbal commitment to Texas on Thursday, Phog.net caught up with the Houston point guard for an exclusive face-to-face interview.

Phog.net: Why didn't you pick Kansas?

Gibson: "I don't know. Sometimes you just have to look in your heart. I
guess God led me to believe that Texas is the place to be. There's no one
thing that definitely set Kansas and Texas apart."

Phog.net: When was Coach Williams informed of your decision?

Gibson: "My dad told him last night. He said Coach Williams sounded kind of heartbroken. Coach Williams said there've been a couple of games where he needed a point guard to take over the game and score a couple of baskets. He said he didn't have that and was hoping I could come in and fill that void. I guess I couldn't do it."

Phog.net: On Tuesday, you told Kansas fans to "stay tuned" for your
announcement today. Is there anything you'd like to tell the Jayhawk nation today?

Gibson: "Yeah, your school is great. Sorry I couldn't help you as far as
coming to the school, but you have a great program. Kansas has everything a high school kid looks for."
