    i do believe that he is relatively new to the track scene, being that he was throwing shot earlier this track season before switching to running. track is just as much about form and technique as it is about just great speed.

    Gibson is considered the #3 prospect in Ohio for 2006. He is a big play linebacker, recording 17 sacks as a junior.

    Sounds a lot like he's gonna be a buckeye... considering he knows nothing about michigan and is excited to one day play with some of the top Ohio players. Also, he was pretty excited when Tressel stopped by his school apparently, as was the entire school.

    His coach wants him to decide before the season.

    Sounds like things look pretty good for the good guys here. This guy fits the mold for an OSU LB.

    Yeah, we don't want any LBs who can't run a sub-4.4... :roll1:

    If I was picking a school, and I had the red carpet laid out for me, and also the chance to be a starter on one of the best teams in the county, and my family could see me play every week, and my girlfriend could...wait, (all those girls... nevermind that) get the idea. I think Gibson is a Buckeye. We just have to stay on him, play some ball, and emphasize the fact that we have like 4 senior linebackers on the best damn defense in college football. If that's not enough to seal the deal, then we will just have to make do with plan B. Here's hoping it's not even an issue. All aboard, Thad!! GO BUCKS

    Thaddeus made Max Emfinger's Nifty 50 list of best players, as one of four weakside LBs, and overall one of 6 LBs.

    Is there a list that you have to register to see that whole Nifty 50 list b/c at the top it says that you have to be a 6* to be on the Nifty 50 list.

    He only has Thaddeus as a 5*.

    I'm not doubting you, I would just like to know if there is another place to view the list, and if Max just didn't finish with giving out his 6* prospects yet.

    Strange... I've made typos before but I definitely remember seeing this page late last night and he was in the top 4 six-star OLB's below Hebron... emfinger changes his stuff frequently. Oh well, he's still a stud :)

    Couldn't have said it better. The kid is an absolute beast, and I want him in the S&G.

    Thad discusses being interested in Miami(FL), Wisconsin, Ohio State, Michigan, Boston College, West Virginia, and Iowa. He claims he is wide open at this point. Thad does detail a phone call from the USC staff which told him of movie stars, weather, and location, but he says he would rather focus on academics. As of right now, there is no plan for a commitment anytime soon.

    You have to love a kid who can look past all the glitz and keep his mind on his future.....

    Gibson will take his visits in the fall. He likes Ohio State, but is looking at Michigan and USC. Recently Miami(FL) has started to contact him. Two main factors for him will be academics and playing time.

    Playing time.... remind me again how many linebackers we're losing after the 2005 season? :biggrin:

    Thaddeus likes Ohio State and Michigan. He will camp at USC and maybe OSU. He is attending summer school.
