SCOUTING REPORT: Gibson is an elite athlete who can do so much at a high level on a football field. If he wanted, he could be a top safety or wide receiver for Ohio State, but over the past year he has developed into an elite quarterback with still so much room to improve. He sees the field well, he has great mobility, he can make any throw, and he is a quarterback defenses have to worry about in and out of the pocket. He has a lot of upside. - Chad Simmons.

THE FIRST TIME HE SAW Ohio STATE: "Coach Meyer is so hype, and he's so juiced up every time we talk," he explained. "When he first saw me, he started jumping up and down. He was eating some food, but he stopped eating when he saw me and started jumping around. It was crazy."

"It was great to finally get to Columbus, and the visit was more than I could have imagined," he admitted. "The campus was so beautiful and it was so big, which is what I like. Columbus is a great place, and they have an awesome stadium. They're building more stuff, and I can't wait to come back here."
