It's still very early in the recruiting game for 2017 Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge wide receiver DeAngelo Gibbs, but that hasn't stopped some big programs from showing interest.
"I already have an offer from Baylor, and Oklahoma State and Texas A&M are looking at me," said Gibbs, who could also project as a defensive back or safety at the next level. "Georgia is also looking at me real hard."
Gibbs said the Georgia coaches are talking to him about a versatile role.
"They're looking at me to play cornerback or wide receiver," he said. "But they really like me as a corner and then they can see me taking some snaps on offense as well."
The nearby Bulldogs provide an intriguing option for Gibbs and proximity could give them an early edge.
"I don't want to say now that it's the one offer that I want, but it is close to home," Gibbs said. "That gives them a little bit of advantage."
With plenty of interest from schools in the Heartland, Gibbs is giving serious thought to playing football in college far from his home in the Southeast.
"My sister goes to USC and she loves her experience, the only thing is that it's really far from home," he said. "I don't want to be as far away from home as her, but I don't mind being far from home. I actually have family in Texas and that area so that wouldn't be bad."
The Bears, the first school to offer, are still in touch and Gibbs says he's paying close attention to their recent success.
"I was impressed with the numbers they put up this year," he said. "I was just really impressed with their offense and how much they air it out."
