Grayson high school’s DeAngelo Gibbs is set to announce his decision tomorrow at the 2017 Under Armour All-America high school football all-star game.
And what school is the talented athlete expected to pick? Gibbs’ official top five is Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee. The Bulldogs have been a favorite for the 6 foot 2 and 205 lbs defensive back, but Nick Saban and Alabama have his attention as well. Whether or not it means anything, Gibbs has been a fixture in Athens on the weekends throughout fall along with current UGA defensive back commit Richard LeCounte III, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.
I am pretty confident that DeAngelo Gibbs will put on a Georgia hat and choose the Bulldogs, but as with all things when it comes to recruiting, there is never a sure thing and I have been wrong before. How confident am I? Does it scare you that I am 95% confident that Gibbs will pick UGA? If it helps, there isn’t much likely hood of Gibbs flipping once he does commit because he plans to be an early enrollee at the school of his choice in January shortly after the all-star game.
Gibbs is rated a five-star prospect by ESPN and Scout, and he is rated four-star prospect by 247Sports.com’s composite ranking system as well as Rivals. He is considered one of the top three prospects at safety for 2017 and is a top 247, ESPN300, Rivals100 and Scout100 player. If Gibbs does end up picking the Dawgs, he will have a chance to make an impact as a freshman in what could be a young secondary next season.
