Rian and Tanner Sign

Tanner Gibson was a three-year starter for the Zanesville Blue Devils. Rian Burrell had a prolific senior season for Zanesville, after transferring back to his hometown. Both men have been best friends since they can remember. This afternoon, they signed letters of intent to play collegiate basketball the only way they could do it: side by side. On Thursday night in the Zanesville cafetorium, Gibson made it official that he will be an Albany Great Dane, while Burrell is headed to North Canton to become a Walsh University Cavalier. The combination of Gibson and Burrell leading Zanesville to a 21-3 record this past season and a Regional Semifinal berth. For more details, click on the video to the left.
