LSU football is one of five programs still in the mix for 2022 four-star running back Terrance Gibbs.
The talented running back revealed a top five this week of Alabama, Florida, LSU, Ohio State, and Tennessee.
Gibbs, 6-foot/190 lbs from Winter Park, FL (Winter Park), is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 21 running back in the country and the No. 22 player in Florida.
He’s also ranked as the No. 192 overall player in the 2022 recruiting class.
Where does LSU football stand in this battle?
Gibbs appears to be high on the Tigers based on his recent comments to Rivals.
The Florida native told TigerDetails.com’s Julie Boudwin that he “really likes” LSU.
“I talk to Kevin Faulk often and Coach Orgeron every now and then,” said Gibbs. “They make me feel at home.”
Gibbs is scheduled to take an official visit to LSU in June.
The big question is whether or not the Tigers would take Gibbs in their 2022 recruiting class.
LSU has in-state running backs TreVonte’ Citizen and Le’Veon Moss at the top of their recruiting board.
Citizen is ranked as the No. 13 running back in the country, while Moss is ranked as the No. 6 running back in the country.
Trevor Etienne, the younger brother of former Clemson running back Travis Etienne, is another in-state running back that LSU is pursuing. Etienne is ranked as the No. 12 running back in the country.
This feels like a situation where LSU is keeping an eye on Gibbs just in case something falls through with their other top targets.
I wouldn’t look for Gibbs to land in the Tigers’ 2022 recruiting class unless something goes terribly wrong for Ed Orgeron and his staff.
