Torrance Gibson may be classified as an "athlete," but he'll enter college with a chance to prove he's a quarterback before any positional switch occurs. He trimmed his choices to seven teams this spring, with Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, Oklahoma, Central Florida, Miami and Ohio State listed in order.
He made the most of spring break, visiting Oklahoma, LSU, Clemson, Auburn, Tennessee and Florida before narrowing things down. Gibson, who accounted for 29 touchdowns during a 2013 state title run, has returned to Auburn and Tennessee since then.
Predicted Destination: Tennessee
The Volunteers didn't take a quarterback during the 2014 cycle, and 2013 signee Riley Ferguson is leaving the program. Given the talent that head coach Butch Jones has assembled during his short tenure in Knoxville, the team may be a star quarterback away from competing for SEC titles in the near future.
Gibson will seize the challenge and join 3-star Texas quarterback Quinten Dormady in a class that needs two passers. If he proves himself as a quarterback at the next level, Gibson could end up orchestrating a dynamic offensive attack as an underclassman.
