Tyler Gibson is a 6’5 285 pound offensive tackle from Johns Creek, GA.
The Class of 2022 prospect attends Johns Creek High School.
Gibson has offers from Arkansas, Boston College, Georgia Tech, LSU, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Oregon, and Virginia Tech, so even though he’s currently unrated, that should be remedied going forward.
In late April, he was offered by Florida State:
After a great talk with @CoachAAtkins, I am extremely blessed to have received an offer from Florida State University! #KeepCLIMBing @CJRecruiting1 @CoachEarl_ @JohnsCreekHSFB @FBCoachJC @CoachSegaloff @bsweatt60 @Mansell247 @ChadSimmons_ @Perroni247 @rivalsmike @Coach_Norvell pic.twitter.com/DveYKuCrc4— Tyler Gibson (@JC_gibs15) April 29, 2020
