5-star recruit Torrance Gibson announces commitment date

Five-star athlete Torrance Gibson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla. American Heritage) has made his decision.

The 6-4, 203-pound dual-threat quarterback knows when he will be announcing his college decision, but the where he will be committing remains the question for the athletic Gibson who is fresh off competing at the Elite 11 at Nike’s The Opening.

Gibson announced on his twitter account on Saturday that he would be committing in October, but did not have a specific date in mind. After looking over his calendar, Gibson posted on twitter on Sunday that he will be committing on Oct. 20. That is a Monday, so I would expect there to be some sort of announcement at his high school.

Ranked as the nation’s No. 16 overall recruit and the No. 1 ranked athlete, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Gibson has an intriguing set of skills that has many believing his best success would come as a wide receiver and not as a quarterback–even in a spread offense conducive to his ability to use his feet.

His decision ultimately could boil down to the program he believes will give him the greatest chance to develop and win a starting job at quarterback.

Gibson named the Tennessee Volunteers his leader on June. 12 after jockeying back-and-forth with Auburn, LSU, UCF, Arizona, Oklahoma and Ohio State in the mix for Gibson. A late push from the Miami Hurricanes could make it interesting as Al Golden would love nothing more than to keep the South Florida talent close to home.

Gibson passed for 1,789 yards with 19 touchdowns to only three interceptions last season as a junior while adding 1,063 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground on 111 attempts.
