Gibson excited about Saban

Rivals100 wide receiver Brandon Gibson has had Alabama on top of his list of favorites since the start of the recruiting process and despite the coaching change the Tide is still there. Gibson, 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, was contacted by a member of the Alabama's new staff and he is excited about the hiring of Nick Saban.

"I was pretty surprised because it was like something I had been waiting on a long time and thought it was too good to be true. But when it did I was super excited because I know what a great coach Nick Saban is and it shows that Alabama is set on bringing football back to the way it should be," Gibson said. "I don't know Coach Saban personally but I remember him from when he came to the school to recruit Preston Dials when I was a sophomore. I've followed his teams at LSU and he did a great job.
