Uncommitted countdown: Best 30 SEC targets available- No. 8 Torrance Gibson, QB


SDS will count down the 30 biggest SEC targets still available around the country–these are the players SDS thinks realistically will end up signing with SEC schools. Obviously there are players with SEC offers out west and up north, but if it looks like they aren’t seriously considering the SEC, we didn’t include them in this series.

Here’s a day-by-day ‘month of June’ look at the top 30 realistic SEC targets left in the country, ranking them from No. 30 down to No. 1 on June 30th.

No. 8 – Torrance Gibson, QB/ATH, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.), 6-4/200

SEC OFFERS: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee.
NAT. RANKING: No. 16 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 1 ‘athlete’ prospect in America, though some services rank him solely as a dual-threat QB.
THE SKINNY: Gibson is the kind of quarterback that can actually take his time with recruiting. While so many other QBs have felt the pressure to pick their schools quickly, he knows schools will wait. Right now, he tells Saturday Down South that Auburn and Tennessee are both high up for his services. He will bring incredible speed to the team, and great size. This should be a great recruitment to watch..
GIBSON TELLS SDS: “A lot of people see me as a running quarterback but I like to throw the ball deep, and a lot of these coaches are impressed with my accuracy and my deep-ball skills. They say I have a tremendous arm. I can throw 75 yards. They say I have great body size like Cam Newton and they love my game. A lot of people are now looking at dual-threat QBs because they can get out of tough situations when the pocket collapses. A lot of coaches are starting to look at that and I think it’s great for me.”
SDS PREDICTION: My mind changes daily on this. I was rock solid with Tennessee for a long time until Auburn began to sway him, too. I’ll stick with Tennessee by a hair over the Tigers.

Editor’s note: For this particular series, Saturday Down South’s order for ‘likely SEC recruits’ is determined using the 247Sports.com industry composite ranking (as of June 1st ranking).
