CuseNation.com is able to confirm multiple reports that Colorado State graduate transfer guard John Gillon is interested in Syracuse basketball. Gillon said he has been in touch with Orange assistant Adrian Autry about the possibility of finishing his career in Central New York.
"I just think it would be a great place to finish my college career," Gillon said. "They just showed interest and want me to visit."
No visit date has been set quite yet.
Gillon started his career at Arkansas-Little Rock before transferring to Colorado State, where he has been the last two seasons. As a junior, he averaged 13.2 points and 3.9 assists per game. He is shooting 36.5% from three over his career, including over 39% in each of his first two seasons.
The 6-foot-0 point guard is originally from Houston (Tx.). He would be eligible immediately under the NCAA's graduate transfer rules.
Syracuse is also involved with graduate transfer guard Grant Mullins, a 6-foot-4 combo-guard. He visited Syracuse on Friday, April 15th.
There is room for the Orange to take both.
