O-Lineman Familiar With Madtown

Wisconsin has offered this big O-Lineman a scholarship. Will he follow in his brothers footsteps and play for Bucky?

Adam Gibson, a 6-foot-5, 380-pound, offensive lineman from Indianapolis (Decatur Central) will be among the top prospects in the Hoosier State as well as the Midwest in 2002.

"Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin have offered me a scholarship." Gibson said. "My favorites are Michigan, Wisconsin, Alabama, Michigan State and Indiana.

"There's not a leader right now. I'm going to wait until after the season, take some visits and then I'll make a decision."

Gibson will be a four-year varsity starter in 2002. He played his freshman and sophomore varsity seasons at Bloomington (Ind.) North before making a transfer to Indianapolis (Decatur Central) where he played his junior season.

Here's what Decatur Central head coach Tim Abel had to say about Adam Gibson.

"Adam is extremely strong and he's going to improve with more conditioning." Abel said. He's done very well with his weight. Adam benches 450 and squats about 600 pounds.

"Adam's older brother Aaron (Gibson) played at Wisconsin and now he's with the Dallas Cowboys. Adam is stronger than Aaron and his potential is limitless. Adam could be a very dominant football player."

Gibson also letters in track.
