A 6-foot-2 guard from Jefferson, Jasper Gibson could be in line for a big spring and summer with Georgia Stars’ 16U unit.

Currently The Peach State’s 45th-ranked 2020, we recently caught up with the talented floor general, and he explained his skill-set — strengths and weaknesses — to PHGA.

“I feel like I’m a pretty solid point guard, and I feel like I make pretty good decisions. I’m able to attack off the dribble and create opportunities for myself and for my teammates. And I can shoot the 3-ball and finish around the rim,” said Gibson.

“I probably need to get in the weight room, I need to get a lot stronger. And you always work on defense and stuff like that. And then my mid-range game, I’ll be working on that.”

His sophomore season at Jefferson, Gibson was getting buckets in bunches while averaging 20 points per game. He was one of the state’s best sophomore scorers.

“I feel like we had a pretty good year. We really turned things around compared to the way it’s been the past few years,” said Gibson. “I feel like I had a good year, I was the team’s leading scorer.”

Now, he’ll shift his focus to grassroots hoops, and will be showcasing himself with the Georgia Stars this spring and summer.

He’s hoping to help the Stars rack up some wins, and to add to his existing interest from Rice, VMI, East Tennessee State and North Georgia.

“I’m really looking forward to the season, we have a great group of guys and I really like the coach. Our goal is to win the Peach Jam, we’ve talked about that some,” said Gibson. “And my individual goals are to get better and get a scholarship.”
