Gibson Returning!

From Adam Rose at All Things Trojan:

Taj Gibson's father, Wilbert, told LA Times reporter Ben Bolch that the USC forward will return for his junior season.

Fox Sports is reporting that Davon Jefferson is entering the NBA draft and will hire Arn Tellem as an agent. That's about all to the story right now. Draft Express has him going 5th in the second round and NBADraft.net will probably update their list on Monday (they currently have him going in 2009).

While the losses of O.J. Mayo (who declared a few weeks ago) and Jefferson will be tough, retaining Gibson is huge for the basketball team -- literally. At 6'10", he's the largest and most physical of USC's experienced players. Had he left for the NBA, you might have seen a lot of small line-ups and some fast paced ball. If he keeps on pace, Gibson could leave USC on top of the school's career blocked shot list.

That is good news as it will offset the loss of DJ but we still have some work to do.
