Early Looks: WR Brandon Gibson (Washington St)

Cougars fans rejoiced when they heard that WR Brandon Gibson was returning to Washington State to play his Senior season in 2008. The 6'1 202 pound star wide receiver led the Pacific 10 conference last season with 67 catches for 1,180 yards (averaging 107.3 yards/game) and 9 TD's.

In his final four games alone, Gibson tallied receiving totals of: 136 yards at CAL; 153 yards vs. Stanford; 135 yards vs. Oregon St; and 137 yards at Washington. He is expected to be the go-to receiver for new Head Coach Paul Wulff (Eastern Washington University), who has stated that they plan to focus a majority of the offense around Gibson and reward him for returning for his senior year.

According to New Era Scouting, Gibson is ranked in the 2008 senior class as the 9th best WR prospect and 88th best player overall, heading into the 2009 NFL Draft.

(Note: I do not have enough game film/tape to give an accurate analysis on Gibson's play, strengths and weaknesses. He will be featured heading into the new season and we will post specific information on him as the games go on).
