Dillan Gibbons, one of the top offensive line prospects in Tampa Bay, has transferred to Palm Harbor University, and has also received his first SEC offer, from South Carolina, his father Shannon said Wednesday. 

Gibbons, only 14 years old but already 6 feet 5, 278 pounds, started at right tackle for St. Petersburg Catholic last season and in the spring game. But he and twin sister Delanie, a starter on the Barons' girls basketball team, have accepted assignments to PHU.

Delanie, who is 6-1, averaged 5.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game for the Barons last season.

Already holding offers from Ohio State, Louisville and Cincinatti, Dillan, the younger brother of Stanford signee Reilly, has emerged as one of Pinellas County's most sought-after prospects this spring.

South Carolina assistant coach G.A. Magnus offered him a scholarship Wednesday.
