Gibbs comes from a basketball family, as his two older brothers each have come through the Division I ranks in recent years.
Former Pittsburgh star Ashton Gibbs and current Seton Hall guard Sterling Gibbs are the older brothers of Temple, and as the 6-foot-1 point guard prepares for his freshman season at the high school level, one high-major program is already on board.
Seton Hall landed Sterling this past off-season after the guard made the decision to transfer from Texas after one season. As Sterling hopes to find his niche with the Pirates in the near future, head coach Kevin Willard may just be hoping the legacy of the Gibbs’ family can continue in South Orange.
While Temple will look to cement his own legacy, there is the debate over whether or not he can match or even succeed the success of his older brothers. Sterling’s career is just getting started, but Ashton was an all-Big East talent in his four seasons.
Gibbs will be attending Seton Hall Prep (NJ) for his high school career, and while the young guard still has plenty of time (four years in fact) before he lands on a collegiate campus, his talent is already drawing some high interests.
Gibbs continues to improve, even this past summer on the AAU circuit where he ran with Team SCAN.
Temple will be a name to remember in the coming years, and some of his recent highlights are a clear indication of that:
