Gibson spent the summer in Texas preparing for his college career. In five tournaments this summer, he has two top five finishes. He tied for third-place at the Houston Golf Association's (HGA) Wildcat Golf Club tournament with a 75. He followed that with a fourth-place finish at the Cypresswood Golf Club tournament with a four-over 146.

Gibson, from Glenalmond College in Dundee, Scotland, averaged 73.10 strokes in his senior season, where he graduated in the spring of 2017. He earned four top-five finishes in the Scottish National events. Gibson was the 2017 Perth and Kinross County Schools champion while tying for third-place at the 2016 St. Andrew's Championship.

Added Emil, "We are delighted to bring in a student and golfer of Campbell's caliber. He has experience competing for his native country on their national boys squad, which will be valuable as he joins with our team. Campbell is a great fit for Rice both academically and athletically."

Harrison Hineline

Hineline, from Boerne Samuel V. Champion High School in Boerne, Texas, is averaging 75.00 strokes through seven rounds so far in his senior season. Hineline won medalist honors and helped Boerne to the team championship at the NISD Marshall Boys Regional Preview on Oct. 27. Hineline has four career high school victories. He is a two-time team Most Valuable Player and team captain. He is also a three-time member of the All-District Team and a two-time member of the All-Region Team. In 2017, he was named Second Team All-State.

Hineline is averaging 72.25 strokes per round on the America Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Tour. He also qualified for the 2017 U.S. Open Sectional with a score of two-under 70.

"I've watched Harrison develop into one of the top junior players in Texas," said Emil. "He has the confidence and belief in himself that not only will benefit him as a player, but also positively affect his future teammates at Rice. He is a determined young man and that will show up both in the classroom and on the course."
