Who Really Leads for Thaddeus Gibson?

There have been conflicting reports in recent days about Michigan's standing with Euclid, Ohio linebacker Thaddeus Gibson. GoBlueWolverine caught up with the talented prospect Wednesday evening so he could set the record straight.

Who leads for Thaddeus Gibson? Is Michigan out front, or have Ohio State and Tennessee pushed the Maize and Blue to the back of the line? Depending on who you ask, you'll get a different answer. When that question was posed to the standout linebacker Wednesday evening, he left little doubt as to where things stand.

"My top three is Michigan, Ohio State, and Tennessee," Gibson said. "My mom really likes Michigan. I think if it was up to her, that's where I'd go. But I guess you can say with me, Tennessee and Ohio State is the top two.

In a report yesterday by Scout.com National Recruiting Editor Allen Wallace, Gibson indicated that there was a "65-70% chance" that he'd commit to Ohio State over the other two programs. Is that still the case? "Yeah," Gibson said. "I haven't been on my official visit to Ohio State yet. I've got to go this weekend. After that visit I'm probably going to make my decision sometime next week."
