Louisville became the latest school to become involved with Sterling Gibbs, a 5-foot-10 point guard from Seton Hall Prep and the younger brother of incoming Pitt freshman Ashton Gibbs.
Rutgers, Seton Hall and Pitt are already involved with Gibbs, who was named to the Underclass All-Star Game at the Reebok All-American Camp in Philly and is now playing with the New York Panthers in Las Vegas.
Louisville is also heavily involved with New York guards Durand Scott of Rice (2009) and Doron Lamb of Bishop Loughlin (2010).
Seton Hall Prep coach Bob Farrell said Sterling is a different type of player than his brother, who is more of a combo guard.
“He’ll be a different player than his brother, he’s more of a pure point guard,” the coach said. “A lot depends on the players around him, whether he’ll score a lot. If there are other really good players, he can do more.
“He reminds me a little bit of (former Prep standout) Brevin Knight. They’re built about the same. Sterling will get bigger. He’s maybe a little more offensive-minded than Brevin was.”
