On Thursday, 2014 safety Kyle Gibson verbally committed to the Vanderbilt Commodores. Gibson is a four-star recruit and is ranked as one of the Top 20 safeties from the 2014 recruiting class.
The other teams that offered at Gibson, but did not get his commitment were the Boston College Eagles, Florida State Seminoles, Louisville Cardinals, Marshall Thundering Herd, Miami Hurricanes, Michigan State Spartans, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Missouri Tigers, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Ole Miss Rebels, South Florida Bulls, Tennessee Volunteers, Central Florida Knights, UCLA Bruins, West Virginia Mountaineers, and Wisconsin Badgers.
It’s no surprise that Kyle Gibson chose to commit to Vanderbilt because all ten recruiting experts on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball picked the Commodores as the team to land the Seffner, FL native.
Kyle Gibson is a very nice pickup for the Vanderbilt Commodores. At 6’0″, 170 pounds, he displays nice size and a nice frame, and is also very quick with pretty good closing speed.
However, Gibson’s best skills are his ball skills, tackling, instincts, and above all his playmaking abilities.
Gibson’s commitment is No. 18 overall for the Commodores and moves their class to 19th overall in the 247 Sports class rankings. Vandy’s class also ranks 17th in the nation, according to Rivals.com.
The four-star recruit is currently ranked 29th in the state of Florida and 16th among safeties by 247Sports.
