Through ten games this season, St. Edmond guard Andrew Gibb is among the state’s best scorers, averaging 28.2 points per game. It’s no wonder he’s one of Iowa’s most sought-after unsigned seniors.
A 6-foot-1 guard, Gibb has always been regarded as one of Iowa’s best shooters. And he worked hard this offseason to diversify his game with All Iowa Attack 17U. By summer’s end, he was one of the team’s best players, and going up against all the high-level competition helped Gibb tremendously.
“I felt a lot more comfortable this past summer playing against higher level competition, and I thought I had a really good end to the offseason with (All Iowa Attack),” said Gibb.
Now, midway through his senior season, Gibb has been the state’s fourth-best scorer. And although the Gaels are middling at 6-6, he says things are looking up for the team.
“We’re starting to peak at the right time. We started off kind of slow, but guys are really starting to know their role and we’re starting to play better as unit,” said Gibb.
“My role has expanded from what it was last year. I’ve had to step up my rebounding and assists, and being more of a team leader as well.”
After the strong offseason and subsequent senior season, Gibb has become one of the state’s hottest college prospects. He currently holds five offers, from Waldorf, Briar Cliff, DMACC, Iowa Central and Midland, plus a lot of interest from Division III schools.
Those schools will have to wait a little bit though, Gibb says he won’t make a decision until at least late-February.
“I’m very open to everything right now, but I want to get to a couple games before I make my decision; and I think I’ll decide after the season, that’s always been the plan,” said Gibb.
“I’m definitely open to everything right now. I’m just trying to find a good fit for me.”
