Detroit Cass Technical School had seven players sign letters of intent with Division I schools last week, and has another strong crop of talent in the class of 2013. One Technician earning early offers is defensive tackle Kenton Gibbs.
The 6-2, 290-pound Gibbs is now sitting on three scholarship offers from Central Michigan, Northern Illinois and Toledo.
"Toledo was the first. They came in shortly after the state championship game," Gibbs said. "I went down to Toledo and it was a wonderful experience. I went when they played Boise State and the student section was real hyped for the game. It was a nice, peaceful campus and everything was laid out real nice."
Additionally, Gibbs is receiving regular attention from the likes of Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Iowa.
"I talked to Coach [Erik] Campbell from Iowa," Gibbs said. "He has shown me a lot of love.
"I also talk on the phone from time to time with Coach [Terry] Samuel from Michigan State."
Gibbs played defensive tackle for a Cass Tech team that won the Division I state title this past fall, racking up 15 sacks over the course of the season. He has laid low most of this winter, but expects to start visiting campuses in the spring and summer.
"I am going to hit a lot of junior days and things of that sort this summer," he said.
