Texas A&M continues success, gets Gilder

Admon Gilder, a four-star shooting guard out of Texas, opted to stay close to home. He committed to Billy Kennedy and Texas A&M.

There’s been substantial buzz surrounding the Texas A&M football team the past few seasons. But if Billy Kennedy’s recent recruiting success is any indication, Aggie fans are going to have plenty to cheer about on the hardwood too.

On Thursday, Texas A&M picked up a commitment from in-state shooting guard Admon Gilder. The 6-foot-2 guard from Dallas (Tex.) Madison chose the Aggies over Baylor, Oklahoma State and SMU.

With the addition of Gilder, Texas A&M now has three highly touted commitments in the 2015 class. He joins five-star center Tyler Davis and four-star sharp shooter D.J. Hogg to make up their class.

Gilder took official visits to all four schools on his list. His last trip was to Texas A&M with close friend Elijah Thomas, who will make his college choice next week, last weekend.

At 6-foot-2, Gilder is known for his ability to score. He’s comfortable off the catch and has good range on his shot, but he’s also capable of going off the bounce and making mid-range pull-ups.

As a junior, Gilder averaged 25.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists. He helped lead Madison to back-to-back Class 3A state championships. Gilder is regarded as the No. 30 shooting guard in the 2015 class.
