Three-star defender headed to WAC

Stephen Gibson, a 6-foot-3, 230-pound three-star defensive end from Archbishop Shaw (Marrero, La.), has pledged to sign with Louisiana Tech, Scout.com reports.

Colorado, Pittsburgh, Louisiana-Lafayette, Arkansas State, Kansas, Kansas State, Southern Methodist, Southern Miss and Western Michigan also extended scholarship offers to Gibson.

Louisiana Tech only has five verbals for 2012, however, four of those prospects have received three-star grades by ESPNU.
