Gibson Commits to WVU

Gibson gives WVU 23 commitments.

On Wednesday afternoon, fans received official word that safeties coach Tony Gibson had returned to West Virginia. While that press release was still warm, another Gibson added his name to the list of those who will be in Morgantown this fall - Cleveland Heights (OH) wide receiver Shelton Gibson committed to WVU.

The 5-foot-10, 173-pound wideout had Ohio State in the lead for months, but West Virginia continued to recruit him, especially after he attended a 7-on-7 camp in Morgantown over the summer, where he was arguably the top player in attendance.

The coaching staff's persistence paid off and the four-star, 92-rated receiver gave the Mountaineers their 23nd commitment of the 2013 class.

Stay tuned to EerSports for a full interview with Gibson, his coach and a breakdown of what exactly his commitment means for the Mountaineers.
