Anton Gill had his choice of places to visit for Midnight Madness, but the star junior chose to take a trip to Louisville for the Cardinals’ Red-White Scrimmage.
It turns out that was just a preview of what was to come. On Wednesday, Gill made a commitment to Rick Pitino and Louisville.
His father informed CBSSports.com of the news in a text message.
Gill is a 6-foot-2 shooting guard from Ravenscroft (N.C.). He’s a big-time scorer who has proved he can hold his own against anyone. He gets to the rim effectively, and knows how to finish once in the lane. The lefty is more explosive off the dribble, but he has shown the ability to knock down outside shots.
Miami (Fl.) was strongly in the mix, while Gill also held offers from East Carolina, Charlotte, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, Louisville, South Carolina, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech and Xavier. North Carolina had thrown its hat into the ring recently.
Gill ranks No. 36 in CBSSports.com’s Top 100.
