Southern Illinois landed a verbal commitment on Monday from junior college shooting guard Hunter Gibson (Bethany, Okla./Three Rivers C.C.), according to The Southern.

Gibson is the third recruit for head coach Barry Hinson in 2013, joining point guard K.C. Goodwin (Memphis, Tenn./Melrose) and small forward Sean O'Brien (Mundelein, Ill./Mundelein). He was a high school teammate of former Kansas and current New Orleans Hornets guard Xavier Henry at Putnam City (Okla.) High School.
