Ole Miss, Vanderbilt in mix for Gibson

Le'Marcus Gibson, a talented defensive back from Gulfport, Miss. has significant interest from two Southeastern Conference schools. The speedy defender had a surprise visit from one SEC head coach this week.

During his senior season Gibson had 142 tackles, 9 pass breakups, a sack, 4 tackles for losses, 3 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries. He was named to the Coach's First Team All-State squad for the second season in a row.

Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron stopped by Harrison Central High School this week and watched film of Gibson. Orgeron later spoke with Gibson. "He said he was impressed and said he liked me and I was the type player that could play on his team," said Gibson. Ole Miss still has not offered Gibson, "They told me they are going to stay in contact with me," continued Gibson.

Gibson visited Vanderbilt for the Tennessee game. "It was fantastic. They made me feel like I was important," said Gibson of the visit to Nashville. Gibson is being recruited as a safety by Vanderbilt defensive line coach Rick Logo. Gibson is optimistic about an offer from Vanderbilt and feels that one may be coming soon.

Gibson has offers from Houston and Louisiana Tech. He also says he's "in constant contact" with Southern Illinois.
