Vols Recruiting: Tennessee Still Leads For Torrance Gibson

On October 20, the world will know where 2015 five-star dual-threat quarterback Torrance Gibson plans to attend college.

But until then, we’ll have to keep guessing and going off Gibson’s frequent updates.

It appears that Gibson is down to three schools — Auburn, Ohio State and Tennessee.

Gibson has consistently said that Tennessee is his leader over the past couple of months and according to his most recent USA Today blog, the Vols are still his leader.

From USA Today:

Tennessee is my leader, but I’m headed to Ohio State tomorrow for the Friday Night Lights Camp; I don’t know what’ll happen after that as far as who will be in the lead. Just gotta see what happens when I get there. I don’t know if there’s anything that they can do really; I already really like Ohio State, I think it’s just a feeling that I’ll get. We’ll see.

There’s been a lot of talk about which position Gibson will play at the collegiate level. Some folks are calling for him to move to wide receiver, but he’s adamant that he is indeed a quarterback.

The Vols already have two quarterbacks committed to their 2015 class, but there’s no way they’re passing on Gibson.

His quarterback skills may need a little polishing, but that can be said of any quarterback prospect coming out of high school.

As far as Gibson’s recruitment, if Ohio State makes a decent impression during his upcoming visit, I believe they will be the new leaders for Torrance Gibson.

Tennessee fans don’t have good memories of going up against Urban Meyer for a recruit (Vonn Bell anyone?). It could be deja vu all over again if Gibson chooses the Buckeyes in October.
