Scouting Report on Xavier Gibsonby Jerry Meyer - 02/28/2006
Long and athletic, Gibson is presently a finesse face up player with a huge upside. He can block shots, run the floor and has good skills with the ball, especially for his size. He does need to improve as a back to the basket scorer and as a rebounder. Developing strength and toughness will be the key to how much of his upside he achieves.
