Stanford player transfers to USF
USF added four-star offensive lineman Reilly Gibbons to next year’s roster Friday after the freshman decided to transfer due to homesickness.
Gibbons took classes at Stanford over the summer, but did not enroll for the fall term and will likely not have to sit out the 2015 season because he did not register for a class during the football season.
The 6-foot-6, 292-pound tackle is the 10th member of the 2014 USF recruiting class to have been ranked as a four-star recruit.
He earned Class 3A all-state honors as a senior at St. Petersburg Catholic and was selected to play on the 2014 Team USA Under-19 National Team.
Gibbons’ stellar play in high school earned him 47 scholarship offers from schools such as Auburn, Florida State, Oklahoma and Mississippi State. He was rated as the 15th best offensive tackle in his class by ESPN.com.
“Reilly is a big, strong, athletic and very intelligent offensive lineman who fits the mold of our program and the kind of power offense we want to run perfectly,” coach Willie Taggart said in a press release. “He is very bright young man and another great Bay Area talent that we are thrilled to welcome to our program. We are excited to see what he can do when he joins our program in January.”
