Rivals100 QB Gibson in no hurry to decide

Class of 2015 Rivals100 quarterback Torrance Gibson spent the weekend at the Pylon Elite 7-on-7 tournament working primarily at wide receiver, not quarterback, but he said his time at wide out isn't just for fun.
"It works on my timing in my head and it lets me know what my receivers are thinking when I am back at quarterback," he said. "I play quarterback too out here as well so I have to learn how to make something happen with just four seconds because that's all the time we have to get the ball out."
Just like when it comes to positions on the field, Gibson has plenty of options in terms of where he'll play at the next level. He said plenty of big time programs continue to turn up the heat.
"Miami, Ohio State, Tennessee, Oklahoma], Clemson, Florida State, Florida are all showing a lot of love," Gibson said. "And the list goes on and on honestly."
With so many suitors, Gibson said he's planning a busy set of upcoming visits.
"I am going to visit Oklahoma, Tennessee, Ohio State, and all of the Florida schools that have offered me," he said.
Gibson said there will be many factors when it comes to a decision, with education being at the top of his list.
"Academics is the biggest thing first and foremost," Gibson. "The coaching staff and campus life are big things too. The coaching staff has to be together as one unit, too."
Most schools prefer to have a quarterback committed before the summer is over to help build a class, but Gibson said he's not sure of his timetable but it will likely go into the fall.
"I don't really know right now," Gibson said. "Some people want me to commit early because they want their guy in the fold. I need to do things on my terms though and I want to take my official visits. That would be the earliest I would make a decision."
