Georgia beats Tennessee, Auburn to land 5-star EDGE Isaiah Gibson

When Isaiah Gibson committed to the Trojans of Southern Cal in late March, many were surprised, as the Georgia Bulldogs were thought to be the team trending. He backed off of that commitment on June 18.

Now, the Bulldogs have their man, as the On3 Industry Ranked Five-Star EDGE has committed to the in-state team fresh off an unofficial visit to Athens. Gibson was at Georgia over the weekend, electing to take that trip over a previously-planned official visit to Oklahoma.

Ranked as the nation’s No. 27 overall prospect and No. 1 EDGE prospect in the On3 Industry Ranking, Gibson hails from Warner Robins High School in Warner Robins, Georgia.

Gibson raised eyebrows when speaking to Palmer Thombs of DawgsHQ at the On3 Elite Series in Nashville.

“Personally, I feel like nowhere in the country matches UGA. UGA is probably the number one school in the country in every single category. They check every box, no Xs, no red boxes, no nothing,” he told Thombs. “I would say this (visit) would be a ‘make or make it’ for UGA. Not make or break, it’s a double hitter.”

But the love with the Bulldogs has been even longer standing than that.

“I would say it’s the way the players, I’ve been around them and one of the guys from my school went there, and the way everything has to be perfect there. I feel like it should be like that everywhere. Everything has to be perfect,” he said. “The school is just amazing to me. It’s an SEC school, and I feel like that’s just the junior league of going to the NFL. I love everything about the coaching staff for real.”

Gibson officially visited Georgia in late May. He has also officially visited Tennessee, South Carolina, and Auburn.

On3 Scouting Report on Isaiah Gibson

Isaiah Gibson is a complete monster and physical freak. Gibson is a broad-shouldered 6-foot-4, 240 pounds with an absolutely absurd 7-foot wingspan. Gibson’s length for his height is genuinely incredible and it allows him to consistently initiate contact by striking his opponents first and keeping them at a distance which allows him to essentially displace blockers with minimal resistance. Combine his length with his tremendous movement skills and you have a disgustingly high upside prospect at the EDGE position. During the spring camp circuit prior to his senior season he flashed fluidity and loose hips when turning the corner and working through individual position drills. When you turn the film on you see an explosive rusher whose motor allows him to constantly apply pressure to opposing offenses. — Cody Bellaire, On3 National Scout, on Isaiah Gibson
