Texas A&M basketball kicked off Labor Day weekend with some big news.

Junior guard Admon Gilder announced that instead of staying in the NBA draft, he’ll return to College Station for his senior season:


Gilder is a key returnee from an Aggies team that made it to the Sweet 16 in 2017-18. As a junior, he averaged 12.3 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Gilder averaged 32-plus minutes per game in each of the last 2 seasons.

The 6-4 guard will have a chance to end his A&M career with a bang, but he’ll do so without a few key pieces from 2017-18. The Aggies lost Tyler Davis, T.J. Hogg and Robert Williams to the NBA.

Gilder and freshman point guard T.J. Starks will look to provide some stability to a young Aggies squad.

Players have until May 30 to decide if they want to hire an agent and offcially declare or withdraw from the NBA draft.
