Gilbert cites up-tempo style of play as a factor that makes many of the finalists attractive to him. He also says that he grew up as a Syracuse fan and is from Richmond, Virginia originally, so he is familiar with new Texas coach Shaka Smart. Gilbert has not set a date for his commitment, and still wants to visit schools, so expect this recruitment to heat up between these five power programs.
