Gibson (6-3, 235-lb) was one of three visitors on campus from the '11 recruiting class. He was joined on campus by newly-committed RB Jordan Perkins (Lodi, CA), and Tevin Williams, RB from the top-ranked Trinity High School (Euless, TX).
While on his visit, Gibson didn't have much interaction with the other recruits. Instead, Gibson spent a bit of time visiting with Northwestern's players, coaching staff, and academic advisors.
"I met with Coach Fitz and Coach Long, and just talked a lot about the school and about football. I met with a few academic counselors too."
The defensive end was blown away by his visit with Pat Fitzgerald, the former All-American linebacker.
Coach Fitz is a really good guy, he's a really funny guy," said Gibson of Northwestern's head coach. "He could be an NFL linebacker at 36, and he's a head coach."
Gibson was given a tour around Northwestern's campus, the city of Evanston, and the city of Chicago. The visit to Chicago was Gibson's first since he was a younger, so he was excited to return.
"Last time I was in Chicago, I was a little kid," Gibson said. "I liked it a lot, it's a really big city.
The only thing left for Gibson is talking his decision over with his mother and coach. A commitment could come within the next coming days.
In 2010, Gibson and current Northwestern commit Geoff Mogus were a part of a state championship team at St. Edward High School
