Gibson is ranked as the No. 462 recruit in the senior class. Tennessee football’s latest commit has been steadily rising up recruiting rankings.
Rickey Gibson plays high school football for Hewitt-Trussville High School in Trussville, Alabama. Gibson is the No. 24 prospect in Alabama and is rated as the No. 43 cornerback in the class of 2023. Hewitt-Trussville plays against a high level of competition at the high school level.
The 6-foot, 170-pound cornerback is an excellent athlete. Gibson put on a show during a workout at the University of Georgia. The three-star’s impressive athletic profile is part of the reason why the Bulldogs offered the Hewitt-Trussville standout a scholarship this June.
