OL Jesus Gibbs (6-4 265) of Dumfries, VA announced a commitment to USC Saturday a day after arriving on campus for a Will Muschamp summer camp. Gibbs picked the Gamecocks from his announced final 10 of Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Maryland, Rutgers, Connecticut, West Virginia and Navy.
Gibbs had been favoring Virginia for much of his recruiting but the hard push by Will Muschamp and offensive line coach Eric Wolford turned him culminating in Saturday’s announcement.
“Really everything,” Gibbs said about what stood out to him on his visit. “The campus to the academics to the football to the atmosphere and to the coaching.”
As for what Muschamp and Wolford liked about him, Gibbs said, “They liked how athletic and explosive I was.”
Gibbs gives USC 13 commitments for the 2018 class and the fifth for the offensive line.
