Four-star Dra Gibbs-Lawhorn talks Purdue, BYU, UCLA
NORCROSS, Ga -- The foot injury that sidelined Dravyn Gibbs-Lawhorn for roughly a full year is now firmly in the past. The four-star point guard spent the weekend of Sept. 19 proving to be fully recovered by shining at Double Trouble Academy in suburban Atlanta, eventually taking home MVP honors. Gibbs-Lawhorn also found time between games to discuss the state of his recruitment.
IN HIS WORDS
ON HIS RECRUITMENT
ON HIS BYU VISIT
“The football game was nice. It was a great experience. It’s an amazing environment out there. I live in Utah now obviously, but I’m from Indiana originally.”
"They both offered before Covid. I still hear a lot from Purdue a lot. Indian, not as much. They had the coaching change so it’s a bit confusing with them, but I still hear from [recruiting coordinator Brian] Walsh from time to time. I hear a lot from Purdue. I took another visit there this summer and I feel like I am one of their top targets."
“We just talk about the basics about why they want me and how they want me to fit in and play if I go there. We talk a lot about basketball. It’s not like we talk about recruiting a ton because I already know they want me. It’s more just talk about basketball.”
ON HIS FOOT INJURY
“I missed a full year. BYU and Purdue were the two schools that reached out a lot while I was injured and stuck in there. It means a lot. It’s whatever, though, it really doesn;t matter if they keep in contact or not. I still know what kind of player I am.”
ON WHERE HE MIGHT VISIT NEXT
“I want to go on a UCLA visit. I have been talking to them a lot really. We’re supposed to be setting up a visit. They're gonna let me know soon. It’s supposed to be really nice out there. I want to go see it.”
