Mark Turgeon Has A Parting Gift For Rick Barnes

He is Sterling Gibbs, a 6-1 guard from Seton Hall Prep in New Jersey.

Gibbs had signed with Maryland, but when Gary Williams retired and Turgeon left Texas A&M to replace him, Gibbs asked out of his national letter of intent. Turgeon granted the request. He is taking Seth Allen of Fredericksburg Christian, who has committed for 2012. Turgeon was recruiting Allen for A&M.

Gibbs became Seton Hall Prep's all-time leading scorer this year, surpassing his brother Ashton, who is playing for Jamie Dixon at Pitt.

Gibbs averaged 21 points and 4 assists per game for Seton Hall Prep. He is considered to be a quality four-year player. Gibbs had been recruited to Florida by Rob Lanier and he said their relationship was a key factor in his deciding on Texas.
