Maximus Gibbs is a 3-Star 2021 offensive lineman, who many may know as “Big Max” from Netflix’s little league football show, “Coach Snoop.”
Gibbs has come a long way from his time on the show as he now holds 15 Division 1 offers and stands at 6-6 while weighing 350 pounds plus. The Crimson Tide is the latest program to offer Gibbs. Gibbs’ offer came from Alabama’s offensive coordinator, Steve Sarkisian, and the Tide’s offensive line coach, Kyle Flood.
“My head coach had coach Flood and coach Sarkisian on the phone and we had a great conversation,” Gibbs said. “They offered me a full scholarship.”

Nick Saban also got a chance to talk with Gibbs, which left the California product inspired.
“The conversation with coach Saban was really good,” Gibbs added. “It gave me more inspiration to work harder and always believe in myself.”
Gibbs currently attends St. John Bosco High School. The Braves lined Gibbs up at the offensive guard position during his junior season and used him in several ways, which showed his versatility as an offensive lineman. The rising senior also helped protect one of the more explosive high school offenses led by 5-Star quarterback and Clemson signee, DJ Uiageleli.
The 3-Star offensive lineman wants to make multiple visits this Spring and Summer. Alabama could get one.
“I have not plan on visiting Alabama yet, but I was planning to this spring or summer,” Gibbs said.
The Tide signed a total of eight offensive linemen over the last two recruiting cycles. They will look to continue adding beef upfront in the 2021 recruiting class and Gibbs is a name to watch out for.
