Texas A&M guard Admon Gilder, one of the top grad transfers on the market, has committed to Gonzaga. Gilder revealed his decision this afternoon.
Gilder did not play for the Aggies this past season while recovering from a blood clot. In 2017-18, he averaged 12.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game as Texas A&M reached the Sweet 16.
Gilder also shot 45.8 percent from the field, 82 percent from the free throw line and 39.5 percent from three-point range that season, all career-highs. He’ll be immediately eligible for Gonzaga and has one year left to play.
“The journey continues in Spokane,” read Gilder’s Instagram announcement.
Gonzaga is losing Geno Crandall and Josh Perkins to graduation, and could lose Zach Norvell Jr. to the NBA Draft, so adding Gilder was paramount to the team’s backcourt depth.
The Bulldogs earned a No. 1 seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament and reached the Elite Eight for the third time in the last five seasons.
However, they fell short in the West Regional final, losing to eventual national runner-up Texas Tech.
