As the transfer dominoes begin to fall, one of the more intriguing ones was South Carolina's Anthony Gill. Last night he made the call and went with the Virginia Cavaliers. Virginia was one of Gill's finalists coming out of high school so he was comfortable with the staff. He just completed his freshman season, and will have three years of eligibility left after he sits out a year.
Being forced to sit a year will be highly beneficial to Gill and the Hoos. The system run by Darrin Horn and the system run by Tony Bennett are not at all similar, and Gill will need a season of practice to get used to the intricacies of the pack-line defense. The good news is that he's 6-8, 235 pounds, and highly athletic. He'll easily slide into a similar defensive role as played this season by Mike Scott.
Gill was a borderline top-100 recruit coming out of high school, and barely missed making the consensus top-100 at RSCI hoops.
Offensively, what to expect? Is he another Mike Scot...
