Colleges throughout the region have started to show interest in Millersville (Pa.) Penn Manor offensive tackle Jordan Gibbs. The 6-foot-7, 280-pounder is receiving interest from the ACC, Big East and Big Ten.
"Everybody is looking at him right now including Penn State, Syracuse, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Rutgers, Boston College and more," said Penn Manor head coach Robert Forgrave. "I've coached for a long time and he is a can't miss kid and a blue chipper all the way.
What makes Gibbs stand out as a player?
"I've coached at West Point and he has proven to me to be a disciplined kid that has no ego," he said. "He's mentally tough and has everything you want in a football player. He's very athletic as he also plays for the basketball team and he can dunk a basketball. In football I actually use him as a tight end and he's a great blocker and receiver too."
Last season Gibbs hauled in 20 receptions for 451 yards and five touchdowns as he was named all-conference.
