Gonzaga is in the picture for Texas A&M graduate transfer Admon Gilder, along with a number of other prominent programs.
Gilder, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound combo guard, is considered one of the top graduate transfers. He’s visiting Texas Tech this weekend, and the former Dallas prep standout has reportedly drawn interest from Texas, TCU, SMU and Iowa State.
Gilder missed last season with a blood clot in his arm, sitting out Gonzaga’s 94-71 rout over the Aggies in November. The teams meet next season in College Station, Texas. He tweeted earlier this month that it’s been a long journey, but he’s been cleared to resume basketball activities.
The Zags lose senior guards Josh Perkins and Geno Crandall, and there are growing indications that Zach Norvell Jr. will remain in the NBA draft. Norvell apparently received an invitation to the NBA draft combine next month in his hometown of Chicago, tweeting Saturday: “See you there #NBACombine.”
Gilder averaged 12.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 2018, helping Texas A&M reach the Sweet 16. He averaged 13.7 points as a sophomore. He declared for the draft, but decided to return for his junior year.
Gilder has made 49.4 percent of his shots inside the arc, 37.4 percent of 3-pointers and 77.4 percent at the foul line in 98 career games.
Guard Max Hazzard had Gonzaga on his list, but the UC Irvine graduate transfer recently committed to Arizona.
