"Reilly was just offered by the head coach of Northwestern University," said his father, Shannon. "Said that Reilly has all of the ingredients of a great left offensive tackle."
The early offer may come as a surprise to some.
"Told Reilly and I that he has been doing this for many years and does not usually early offer, but in Reilly's case he decided to do it."
It doesn't take much for these college coaches to see a special talent level in Gibbons.
"He went on further to say that it only took three plays to decide to early offer Reilly."
