John'Ta Edwards has transferred to Gibbs for his senior season. Edwards, a defensive back, was at St. Petersburg last season. He recorded 34 total tackles in 10 games and had four pass deflections.
"He's been here for about a week,'' Gibbs coach Rick Kravitz confirmed. "I really don't know much about him right now.''
Edwards is the second player to transfer to Gibbs recently. Tyrell Hubbard-Smith transferred from Lakewood. Kravitz said Hubbard-Smith will likely play quarterback and defensive back.
This is also the second player to recently transfer from St. Petersburg. Defensive back Anthony Foster transferred to Lakewood three weeks ago for his senior season.
