Jefferie Gibson has three scholarship offers, but more schools are starting to pursue the Hope Mills…
Brooks checks out three-star DB
One of the first guys Brooks saw on Tuesday was Gray's Creek High School [Hope Mills] junior Jefferie Gibson.
"He was asking me when I was going to come back up there. And, coach [Mike] Reed, the coach that came from State, he wants to talk to me," Gibson said in a recent interview with CUTigers.
Brooks left a message with the three-star safety.
"I need to come and be their freak safety," Gibson said.
Gibson is familiar with Reed, who spent the last several years coaching defensive backs at N.C. State.
"He's a cool guy. He's one of the first coaches I met, then he got [to Clemson]. It's a transition, but it's still the same relationship," Gibson said.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect visited Clemson in February for Junior Day. He plans to return later this summer and again in the fall for a game.
Also this spring, Gibson visited Virginia Tech, Florida State and N.C. State.
Clemson, UNC and N.C. State have offered. He thinks Virginia Tech could be next to offer. South Carolina and Florida State could, potentially, enter the mix.
"I won't have a favorite until after I think I've got all my schools offers together," Gibson said.
Several factors will be considered as he works towards a final decision.
"Education, if I feel at home, if I feel in place and playing time, of course. If I'm going to play my freshman year or not," Gibson said.
During his junior season, Gibson had 70 tackles and four interceptions.
