The Tigers have visited Gibson this spring. “They’re telling me that they will not have as many safeties when I get there so I can play early,” said Gibson.

6-10 Sidy Mohamed Djitte was all set to sign with Clemson as of Sunday night. But Monday morning he came to his school in Fayetteville, NC decked out in a Memphis Tigers cap and T-shirt. Thus, the delay in an announcement on a school by Djitte. And a decision may be a few days off, if not longer. A source said Monday night a close confidant of Djitte, who is an assistant coach at a division one program, is in contention for an assistant’s job at Memphis. The Tigers, who just lost assistant coach Damon Stoudemire to Arizona, have two openings on their staff. Should this person get the Memphis job, Djitte may follow him. The source said Djitte’s coach at Northwood Academy is in favor of him going to Clemson. Djitte may not have a decision until his confidant’s job status is resolved.
