AAU Coach: Gamecocks' Gill Transferring to UVa

The Virginia men's basketball team has reportedly added former South Carolina forward Anthony Gill.

Rick Lewis, Gill's former AAU coach who now runs the recruiting website PhenomHoopReport.com, posted the news on Twitter Monday afternoon.

"Per Anthony Gill's father, AG will attend UVA. The Wahoos have a future ALL ACC player," Lewis tweeted.

Multiple other outlets have also reported Gill's decision to join the Cavaliers.

Gill started 26 of the Gamecocks' 31 games as a freshman in 2011-12, averaging 7.6 and 4.7 rebounds in 25.3 minutes per game. New South Carolina coach Frank Martin announced on April 6 that Gill had been granted permission to transfer.

Gill was rated as a four-star recruit by by ESPN and Scout.com, and ranked as one of the top 150 prospects in the country by Rivals, as a senior at Charlotte Christian School in North Carolina. Virginia forward Akil Mitchell, a rising junior, also attended Charlotte Christian.

According to the Gamecocks' official website, Gill chose South Carolina over Virginia and Wake Forest.

Gill must sit out the 2012-13 season, per NCAA transfer rules. He'd be eligible to join the Cavaliers for the 2013-14 season as a redshirt sophomore, with three years of eligibility remaining.
