Class of 2022 offensive tackle prospect Tyler Gibson recently narrowed his list of potential college homes to eight schools. Florida State joins Georgia Tech, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia as the leaders in the recruitment of the rising senior from Alpharetta (Ga.) Johns Creek High School.
Gibson, 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, which also ranks him as the 46th-best offensive tackle prospect in the country for the class of 2022.
Relationships are something Gibson places value on and he feels like he is building a strong one with FSU offensive line coach Alex Atkins, graduate assistant coach Cooper Williams and several prospects who have already committed to FSU.
“Building that relationship with Coach Atkins and Coach Williams has been a blessing, especially coming from one of the schools that I’ve always dreamed of being offered by,” said Gibson.
While Gibson is being recruited as an offensive tackle he believes he has the versatility to line up at just about any position on the offensive line in college.
“Whoever gets me is going to get a jack of all trades, a Swiss-army knife of lineman,” said Gibson.
Gibson believes the strength of his game is his footwork at this point in his development. He also hopes to improve in this area to perfect his technique. He attended FSU’s annual spring game and since has kept contact with a couple of current commits.
“I’ve talked to Travis Hunter and Nicco (Marchiol) a lot,” said Gibson.
Gibson plans on using one of his official visits at Florida State, but does not have a date set.
“Nicco and I are actually planning on going on an official visit together,” said Gibson.
Gibson will also be taking official visits to Virginia, Indiana, and Georgia Tech. He plans on committing in July.
