Two days after starring at Heinz Field in the WPIAL championship, Aliquippa senior Will Gipson reopened his college recruitment.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver had committed to Ball State in June with teammate Solvauhn Moreland, but announced Monday night on Twitter that his “recruitment is 100% back open.”

Gipson drew increase interest this fall from Power 5 teams and received a Rutgers offer Oct. 15. He attended Pitt’s home game Oct. 27 and posted a photo with Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi.

Gipson caught seven passes for 165 yards and three touchdowns Saturday as Aliquippa defeated Derry, 42-19, in the WPIAL Class 3A final. He leads the Quips with 53 catches for 1,494 yards and 18 touchdowns.

“After a lot of thought and praying with my family, I have decided to de-commit from Ball State University,” Gipson wrote on Twitter. “I want to thank Coach (Mike) Neu and Coach (Alex) Bailey for believing in me and my abilities. This has been a very tough decision, but it is also a decision that I have to live with. I have to do what is best for my future. I am reopening my recruitment.”
