Gibson is a power forward out of Downey, C.A. and he is currently averaging 11.4 points and 7.7 rebounds per game while shooting 54 percent (55-102) from the floor.
"Leon has really good footwork for his size. He has the ability to faceup from 14' in and can hit a little jump-hook in the lane," said JucoJunction Publisher Bret Swanson.
Gibson has a host of schools recruiting him this spring according to Bulldogs Assisant Coach Eric Colbert.
Allen is a shooting guard from Eureka, C.A. that is off to a good start this season for the Bulldogs.
Allen is shooting 43.4 percent (30-69) from 3-point range while averaging 11.9 points per game.
Creighton, Boston College, Idaho, UC Riverside and Southern California are all showing interest in Allen according to coach Colbert. Idaho and UC Riverside have offered Allen.
"Greg plays very under control on the floor. He can really pop off screens for good looks. He has a great demeanor on the floor at all times," said Swanson.
Jeremy Adams will be able to leave after just one season in Corsicana.
The redshirt freshman is division one transfer from Texas A&M. Adams hails from Jackson, M.S. and is averaging 10.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game this season from the wing position. Adams will visit Alabama and Colorado over the holiday break according to coach Colbert.
