But a new school has suddenly entered the picture for Gibson, and he has cancelled the trip to North Carolina State, and instead will take an official visit to Kentucky.
"I spoke with the new Kentucky coaches this week, and I'm going there this weekend for an official," Gibson stated Thursday evening. "That new staff is pretty sweet, and I'm excited to have that offer."
Gibson is one of three Ohioans that have scheduled visits with new head coach Mark Stoops in the past 24 hours. Huber Heights Wayne offensive lineman Lovell Peterson will also take an official to Lexington this weekend, while Canton McKinley defensive end Antoine Miles, a recent Nebraska commit, will visit officially in January.
Stoops and recently hired assistant Vince Marrow have been extremely aggressive in Ohio this week, as both natives are well respected in the state. They are making it clear that they plan on being a player in Ohio recruiting going forward.
