“The guy’s really talented,” Patenaude said Friday via videoconference following practice. “He’s very dynamic out of the backfield. He has great hands. He’s not a really big guy, but he has a very wide catch radius. We ran him down the sideline on a route a couple days ago, and he jumped over a guy and spun and kept his foot inbounds. So he brings a lot of versatility.”
Gibbs was the prize of coach Geoff Collins’ 2020 signing class, a first-team All-American who was rated among the top 100 seniors in the country and the No. 8 running back nationwide (247Sports Composite). He picked Tech over Florida and LSU, part of a class that was rated No. 27 in the country, the highest finish since the 2007 class.
