Kirk Earlywine on Gibbs: "Alden will come in and be one of the best athletes in the Big Sky. He will remind Eagle fans of Chris Hester, and he may go up even higher than Hester -- and that's saying a mouthful. He's an unbelievable rebounder for a player 6-3. He pursues every ball and he can really get out in transition and finish plays at the basket. If he shoots the ball effectively from the perimeter, he's really going to be hard to guard for other teams from our conference."

Junior College: While at College of the Siskiyous in California, Gibbs was a California Community College Athletic Association first team All-State selection in the 2008-09 season.

Gibbs averaged 13.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 3.5 steals as a freshman, including three double-doubles with a high scoring output of 25 points. He led the school to a 22-12 record in 2008-09 after a 9-20 finish the year before.

High School: Graduated from Canarsie HS in 2007. He helped lead his team to the semifinals of the 2006 A Division Playoffs in New York, losing 67-62 to the eventual champion with a berth in the championship game at Madison Square Garden on the line.
