Willie Gibson, a 6-foot-1, 176-pound wide receiver from Aledo (Texas) High continues to hear from a number of universities, but he is still waiting for his first official offer.

Gibson said his senior season, however, has been his best year thus far.

“It’s been great. It’s been my best year since I’ve been on varsity. Our season has gone well except for one loss,” Gibson said. “We are doing well despite losing a lot of good players last year.”

Gibson said he would grade himself well so far this season.

“I would grade myself pretty well. Last year, I missed time with a concussion, so I’m lucky this year, I haven’t had anything,” Gibson said. “I feel like I didn’t really get to show myself last year.”

The speedy wide out said he will release a new highlight tape to coaches after district play concludes.

“So far I have been mainly talking to UCA, University of Central Arkansas,” Gibson said. “I’ve heard from others, but I’m mainly looking at UCA.”

Gibson said that he feels an offer could come soon. “I just took the SAT like a week ago, so they were telling me that that is what’s holding me back from there, so I know they’re interested in me.”

Willie Gibson said that an underrated part of his game is his blocking which he feels like could help a team at the collegiate level.

“Honestly I enjoy blocking at receiver,” Gibson said. “It’s something that I had to work at. When I got moved up my sophomore year, I didn’t really like to block at all, but now I’m like a blocking machine. That’s what I want to do other than catch balls and score.”

Gibson will visit Central Arkansas on November 3rd for their homecoming game against Northwestern State.
