"We are leaving for Mississippi State at 10 o'clock in the morning," said Gibson. "I am looking forward to getting back over there and seeing their spring game.
"I am looking forward to seeing Coach Collins too."
Coach Collins is Bulldog defensive coordinator, Geoff Collins.
Gibson reports that the two go way back to the early days of his recruitment.
"Coach Collins was really the first coach to start recruiting me," explained Gibson. "We have a great relationship and he is always talking to me about being a Bulldog.
"He and Coach (Greg) Knox have both told me how bad they want me to come over there and be a Bulldog."
It appears that the Mississippi State recruiting efforts are paying off.
"I love the Bulldogs and I love the coaches over there," said Gibson. "They are one of my top schools.
"I would have to say that Mississippi State is my top three of four schools."
With the in conference rivals still jockeying for position, Gibson has begun to narrow down his list of options as well as his time frame for a decision.
"I know I want to do it this summer," said Gibson of making his verbal commitment. "I want to go ahead and get it down, so I have plenty of time to build relationships with all of the coaches and players that I am going to be with the next few years."
