North Carolina athlete has interest in USC

ATH Jefferie Gibson has visited USC.

ATH Jefferie Gibson (6-4 190) of Hope Mills, NC has offers from Clemson, NC State and North Carolina with interest from USC, Florida State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. He named Clemson and NC State his top two adding, "It depends on what other offers I get."

Gibson made his way to Clemson for a junior day recently and liked what he saw. "I've been there three or four times," he said. "This time I got to see the campus and where the players stay. The coaches are telling me the best players get to play and contribute and I like that. They said they don't worry about seniority. They said if I'm the best at my position, I'll start."

Gibson has also visited USC. "I was there for the Wofford game," he said. "It was pretty cool. The coaches seem really tight." He heads to Florida State this weekend for a junior day.

As a junior he totaled 70 tackles, four interceptions returning two for scores and added a kickoff return for a touchdown.

He did not name a leader.
