Terrance Gibbs commits to the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators have been on a hot streak with picking up commitments this week and they landed their 11th commitment  of the class on Friday.

Running back Terrance Gibbs (6-0, 190, Winter Park, FL. High) committed to the Florida Gators on Friday just one month after taking his official visit to Florida

Gibbs watched a lot of film with running backs coach Greg Knox last week while he was on his official visit, and he liked how the Gators plan to use him on offense.

“We watched some film and seeing what I can do coming out of the backfield,” Gibbs said of his time with the coaches. “Seeing what the NFL looks at and what they will implant here to be successful in the NFL. The fact that I can catch, and they like to move their running backs out into one-on-one coverages and stuff like that, it will take that to my advantage.”

Quickly following his official visit last weekend, Gibbs named the Gators his leader for a few reasons.

“Florida is still in the lead and stuff like that,” Gibbs said on when he will commit. “Just them being consistent, staying on me, and keeping in touch with me. It most definitely crossed mine [committing this weekend].”

The running back is coming off of a torn ACL but Gibbs has received good reports on his knee and should be healthy for his senior football season.

Gibbs is the first of what’s expected to be two running backs in the class of 2022 as the Gators will lose Malik Davis and Dameon Pierce to graduation following the year.
