2013 Recruit Kenton Gibbs visiting Pitt this weekend

US PRESSWIRE

EDITOR'S NOTE: Contrary to the link provided below, Chris Peak of PantherLair reports that Gibbs is likely not visiting this weekend, but that he will be in January.

Pitt will reportedly be hosting a fairly important recruit this weekend for the Class of 2013 - defensive tackle Kenton Gibbs. Gibbs was committed to Illinois earlier this year, but decommitted this fall, according to the article.

He is a three-star player as rated by Rivals and has offers from several schools including Pitt, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, and Illinois. His school, Cass Tech, recently won their second state championship in a row. Gibbs played a big part in it returning a fumble for a touchdown.

One thing that could work in Pitt's advantage? Earlier this spring, Gibbs talked about wanting to go to a school with a good business program, which Pitt has.

It's probably a good thing that the news of Paul Chryst staying with the Panthers broke before the weekend. Could be another solid recruit for the 2013 class - particularly if Aaron Donald leaves early for the NFL Draft.
