"It went real well," Gibson said of his official visit. "There's no question that Ohio State is a great place to be, a great place to live and a great place to play football. I liked my visit a lot but I didn't commit."
"They showed me the ropes," Gibson said. "But I would have to say the highlight of the whole visit was my conversation with Jim Tressel."
Gibson spent some quality time with Jim Tressel, one-on-one in his office, discussing practically everything but football.
"Coach Tressel is a very smart guy," he said. "He sat me down with a pen and notepad and he would jot down answers to the questions he would ask me. I really liked our conversation. It was really different. It was really nice."
And in the end, Gibson never once felt any pressure to make a commitment on his visit.
"I would say that they asked me in a way without saying it," he said.
Gibson was going over his options with his family members on Monday night. Ohio State, Tennessee and Michigan are the only three schools that he has officially visited.
"I'm discussing it with my family right now," he said. "I think I'll be ready to make a commitment by Thursday or Friday."
On Friday night Euclid hits the home hardwood where they'll take on the Mentor Cardinals. Both teams are undefeated in their league. Gibson is averaging 16 points and 8 rebounds for his 8-3 Panthers. Euclid takes on Glenville at home on Saturday night. Robert Rose, who committed to Ohio State at the All-American Bowl, is on the Tarblooder hoop team.
