Franz Beard’s Basketball Confidential
Consider Xavier Gibson (6-10, 230, Dothan, AL Northview) priority number one as the Florida Gators look to round out the recruiting class of 2008. Gibson's recent play at the LeBron James Nike camp followed by some impressive showings in the 2007 Nike Peach Jam had him moving on up, but a couple of recent developments on the recruiting front have pushed him to the top spot.
It is a three-way battle for Gibson with Florida, North Carolina and Florida State. The Gators want at least one more big to go with Kenny Kadji (6-10, 250, Bradenton, FL IMG Academy) and Gibson is the right combination of size, athletic ability, coachability and good grades.
