The 6-foot, 168-pound Gillon began his college basketball career at Arkansas-Little Rock where he played just one season before transferring to Colorado State. After sitting out a year due to transfer rules, Gillon played two seasons with the Rams, and averaged 13.2 points and 3.8 assists as a junior in 2015-16.
He announced his decision to transfer from Colorado State last week, and as a graduate, he will be eligible to play immediately.
According to Jeff Borzello of ESPN, Gillon will first visit Syracuse this weekend before taking trips to visit the Aggies and Sooners next week. Both Syracuse and Oklahoma advanced to the Final Four in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, while Texas A&M was the only SEC team to earn a spot in the Sweet 16.
