Sterling Gibbs chooses Texas

After de-committing from Maryland, class of 2011 point guard Sterling Gibbs committed to the Texas Longhorns over UCLA, UConn, Seton Hall, Maryland and Louisville moments ago after taking a visit this past weekend.

Says Gibbs, “I have a great relationship with coach Rob Lanier. I’ve known him since middle school. My family trusts him.” The former Florida coach made contact with the Gibbs family as soon as he made his move to Texas. Immediately after his visit to the Longhorns, you could tell Gibbs had a very high interest level in Texas. “The visit went really well,” Gibbs told Zagsblog Monday. “It was a smooth transition and I’ve known coach [Rob] Lanier since his days at Florida.”

Gibbs originally de-committed from Maryland in the first place after head coach Gary Williams retired. He is also good friends with shooting guard Nick Faust (#38), the second-highest rated prospect left on the board in the class of 2011, who will be making his decision soon as well.
