USC welcomed TE Jordan Giberti (6-3 225) of Gainesville, FL to campus Saturday and it won’t be his last visit to Columbia. He’s far away from thinking about a commitment but it wouldn’t be a shock to see him make Columbia his college home one day.
“I loved it,” Giberti said. “The definitely stress a family atmosphere there. The coaches are really hands on and talk to you personally. They invited 35-40 kids they are seriously looking at and it was pretty cool. I got to see the campus for the first time. I saw the stadium. It was good to get a feel for the program and the academic side as well.”
Giberti has an offer from the Gamecocks and Utah and is drawing interest from Central Florida, Cincinnati, Arizona and Northwestern.
“I really liked it and felt comfortable there,” he said. “At the same time, I’m not going to rush anything. I want to enjoy my senior year and the whole process and not make it too stressful and see how it plays out. South Carolina is all I know right now, the only one I’ve visited and talked to the coaches personally. I’ve only seen one school. Once I get to know other schools, I’ll get a favorite. But I do love it up there in Columbia.”
Giberti plans a return trip to Columbia this summer. He’s also expecting more offers to come in this spring when more schools get a chance to see him.
