Admon Gilder, a graduate transfer who spent his latest college basketball season with the Texas A&M Aggies, has committed to the Gonzaga Bulldogs. He made the announcement on Twitter.

This is a significant get for Mark Few, as Gilder proved his worth with Texas A&M the season before last, scoring more than 12 points per game. He sat out the previous campaign due to a health issue.
He actually averaged 13.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists as a sophomore.
Basically, he’s good and fills some major needs the Gonzaga Bulldogs will have for the upcoming season. The Bulldogs for sure lost Josh Perkins and Geno Crandall to graduation, and could lose starting wing Zach Norvell Jr. to the NBA Draft if he keeps his name in.
Admon Gilder should not only make an impact for Gonzaga, but likely fight for starting minutes.
As for the Gonzaga Bulldogs, using plug-and-place graduate transfers is clearly a smart move. Time will tell how much it pays off for Mark Few.
