Southern Methodist University is in search for help in the defensive secondary, that's not a secret.
The Mustang coaching staff appears to be going after a prospect that they are very familiar with.
Former Hawaii player LeMarcus Gibson of Gulf Coast Community College and originally from Harrison Central High School may be close to pulling the trigger and rejoining June Jones and Jeff Reinebold, this time at SMU.
Gibson, a 6-foot-2, 197-pound strong safety who runs a 4.5 forty, signed at the University of Hawaii out of high school. He left after the new coaching change, due to being a little home sick and missing the coaches that recruited him to the Island.
"I like Coach Jones a lot," Gibson said. "He taught me a few things while I was at Hawaii; he is a great coach and a great person. I like being around him."
The coach that Gibson is very close is the one that recruited him to Hawaii in the first place.
"Coach Reinebold and I are very close," Gibson said. "He is the type of coach that cares about you as a person, not just a player. You can talk to him about anything, he teaches you a lot about football and a lot about life."
Gibson had scheduled an official visit for December 5th to SMU, but will have to move that date up due to Gulf Coast playing in a Bowl game that weekend.
"Looks like I'm coming up for the Southern Mississippi game," Gibson said. "If I like it there like I think I will, most likely I will go ahead and commit to them."
