In 2007, as a junior, Gibson started 11 games and was named to Phil Steele's Third-Team All-America. Also, he was voted First-team All-Pac-10 honors. He set the WSU single-season record for receiving yards in a season with 1,180 on 67 receptions. He also led the team with nine touchdowns, a tie for third most touchdowns in a single season by a WSU Cougar. In 2006, he played in 12 games with no starts. He led the Cougars with 731 yards and was second on the squad in both receptions (49) and touchdowns (four). As a freshman, he earned a varsity letter after playing in 10 of the Cougars' 11 games during his debut season. Gibson ended the season with 9 catches for 172 yards (19.2 yard average) and 2 touchdowns.

Gibson seriously considered leaving Washington State to declare for the 2008 NFL Draft due to the team switching coaches, however, the new coaching staff convinced him to stay.

As a senior in 2008, Gibson earned the fourth varsity letter of his career after starting in each of WSU's 13 games. He was named honorable mention All-Pacific-10 Conference and the team Offensive Most Valuable Player. In 2008, he caught 57 passes for 673 yards and two touchdowns.
