Torrance Gibson has had one heck of a story.

He was at one time a 5-star recruit who decided to sign with the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Class of 2015. Then, he was redshirted and eventually moved on to play football at Cincinnati.

Once he realized his time with the Bearcats wouldn’t work out, he tried to play at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Gibson was a QB coming out of high school, but was moved to WR at Ohio State.

Once he went to play at a lower level, he had the opportunity to play at both QB and WR. That’s how gifted Gibson is athletically.

Unfortunately, he disappeared from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College for a stretch in October, closing that chapter of his football career. It was noted that Cincinnati tried to make it work with Gibson, but it never did end up working.

Gibson was also suspended by Ohio State for a year due to a violation of the school’s student code of conduct.

Long story short — again — he has had one heck of a story. On Saturday, though, his story took a different turn:

The Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL — who have won 14 Grey Cups and most recently in 2015 — have signed Gibson. It’s interesting to note that he has been deemed as a WR, of course, because of his ties to the QB position.

The Eskimos made it to the Western Final this past season, losing to the Calgary Stampeders, 32-28.
