2015 American Heritage Plantation (FL) QB Offered by Miami, Boston College

2015 QB Torrance Gibson (6’3, 200, 4.5) of American Heritage Plantation in Florida attended the University of Miami’s Junior Day last Saturday. He talked with Deep South Recruiting about his experience in Coral Gables. “I had a good time. I saw a lot of familiar faces, talked a little while with Head Coach Al Golden.”

Gibson talked about the conversation he had with Coach Golden. “I was there with my coach, Mario Perez, and we were sitting down and talking things over and Coach Golden called me over to where he was sitting. He told me ‘I want you to stay in Florida to play college football, so we’re offering you a chance to stay home.’”

What’s remarkable is that Gibson didn’t play quarterback last season. He played safety primarily. The offer from Miami, his second, is to play quarterback. Boston College offered him last spring as a freshman and last week added offers from Notre Dame and Ohio St.

American Heritage Plantation’s explosive dual-threat quarterback rated his visit a “10 out of 10.”

He explained his rating in further detail. “It’s the history of Miami, all the success and championships. The campus is beautiful, I love everything about them. I can’t wait to go back again.”

Gibson will be selective on where he attends Junior Days and camps in the near future. “I’m thinking I might go to Florida St. and I want to go back to Miami again,” he said. ”I’m planning on going to Tuscaloosa to camp at Alabama and I’ll return to camp at Miami again this summer.”


The electrifying sophomore doesn’t list any frontrunners quite yet. “I’m still wide open, but I certainly like Miami.”

Gibson discussed what will be important to him when deciding on a college program. “I want to play for a great coaching staff. I’m also looking for great academics, looking for the best fit for me. I’ll also consider the campus lifestyle and how I fit in and preferably, I would like to play closer to home, but if I feel my best opportunities are out of state, I won’t let school location get in the way.”

He’s set high expectations for himself and American Heritage Plantation in 2013. “I want to throw for 2500 yards and rush for a 1000. My goals for the team is to be the strongest team in the country. We’re getting pushed hard in the weight room. I think that will translate into being a strong competitor for the state championship.”
