Admon Gilder, ESPN top 65 recruit, commits to Texas A&M


Texas A&M and Billy Kennedy are positioning themselves fantastically for the future, reeling in their third ESPN top 100 recruit on Thursday with the commitment of shooting guard Admon Gilder.

Gilder, a four-star prospect out of Texas, is not only the third member of the Aggies 2015 recruiting class, but the third Texan as well, joining centers Tyler Davis and DJ Hogg.

The choice to go with TAMU came as a bit of a surprise, as 247Sports’ crystal ball had Oklahoma State as the favorite, followed by SMU and then Texas A&M. However, Kennedy and his staff will be more than pleased with the addition.

With only two seniors on the current roster, Kennedy is shaping up to have an impressively deep team next season with this recruiting class.

Even better, the Aggies may not be done reeling in top recruits this year, with center Elijah Thomas now a possibility. Thomas and Gilder took their visit together to College Station, prompting many to believe the visit may have swayed Gilder.

As is, the Aggies already have one of the top recruiting classes in the nation and can only get better. Kennedy and his staff are doing a fantastic job on the recruiting trails this season, validating his recent contract extension.
