Peach Jam: Gibson considering UNC?

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. -- Point guard Daniel Gibson tells the Texas staff that he's still coming to Austin, but there's a gray area. Rumors swirled at the Peach Jam that Gibson might be re-opening his recruitment. We caught up with him in the evening.

Gibson Wavering On UT Commitment?

"I'm still going to Texas as of now," Gibson said. "You commit early and sometimes you think back on your decision. I'm just wondering if I made the right decision."

Basically, there would be plenty of interested parties and you might see some him connected with some schools in the coming days. However, our best guess here is that there is just one school that could threaten Texas: North Carolina.

We asked Gibson for a list of schools he would be interested in but he didn't want to reveal them. He then offered up the Tar Heels and spot about them. He's been a fan of their program for a while and likes them. Roy Williams had Kansas positioned as a finalist when he was in Lawrence. While there's been no contact with the UNC staff and Gibson to date, UNC staffers have been spotted at his games this week.

We presented him with a hypothetical question dealing with what would happen if the Tar Heels offered him a scholarship. Would he says "no thanks", commit to a visit or commit on the spot? Gibson answered that he would take a visit.

We'll keep you posted on the latest developments as the week unfolds here in North Augusta.
