Gibbs spent the last two seasons with Seton Hall. Before playing for the Pirates, Gibbs played for Texas during the 2011-2012 season.
After Seton Hall's final game of the season, Gibbs said he planned to remain with the Pirates.
“I’m at Seton Hall and that’s where I’m going to be," he told SNY's Adam Zagoria. "That’s where I’m going to finish it out."
In 29 games in 2014-15, Gibbs averaged 16.3 points and 3.8 assists per game. He was named second-team All-Big East.
