Gipson arrived at Pitt as a three-star recruit from Aliquippa High School and was in their Class of 2019. It’s interesting that Pitt was recruiting both Gipson and Aliquippa 4-star safety MJ Devonshire and at the time, Gipson signed with Pitt and Devonshire with Kentucky. Two years later, Devonshire has transferred to Pitt and now is Gipson is transferring.
Gipson is a big (6-foot-3, 185 pounds), athletic wideout with tremendous playmaking ability but with the depth at wide receiver, never had the chance last season to show it.
Gipson will have four seasons of athletic eligibility at his new school.
