Mike Bibby Jr. Commits To South Florida

Aug 9, 2016 6:50 PM

South Florida has signed Mike Bibby Jr., who is the son of Mike Bibby.

Bibby is a 6'3 guard who can handle the ball and also run the offense.

Bibby had two knee surgeries on the same knee in high school to repair a torn meniscus that cost him most of his junior year, but he is now playing without a knee brace and appears to be healthy.
