I would call him a pg. Saw him a couple times in Pontiac. Seemed like the type of kid we have not gone after and I really don't understand why. Even undersized he always seemed to run the team and make great decisions. Something we have not had in a really long time. Even Paris really struggled with decision making quite a bit as a pg.

So is Gilyard a PG or not? You guys seem to disagree on it.

I haven't seen him play in person, just going off the numbers Sports Reference. Career he has averaged 11.3 points, 1.7 assists, and 2.2 turnovers. That's why I didn't call him a PG. Those numbers would tell me he played off the ball more at UTEP. Maybe that's part of the reason for the transfer, he wants the offense to go through him.

Also, thanks for sharing that video. He looked like an exciting HS player. I wonder why he didn't get more attention.

Athlon and Street and Smith's preview magazines seem to consider him a PG, but he clearly likes to shoot. Freshman year he averaged nearly 4 assists per game, a little better than last year. This season it appeared like he played with another ball handler at guard, so maybe assists fell off. Maybe too much analysis, but UTEP had a pretty crappy looking offense, by the stats. Possible there weren't that many assists to get - his guys weren't making shots.

I'm partial to Simeon guys in general (Chicago area in general), so I'd be glad to see the guy. Can he bring along Reeves too?

And as a "negative" aside, UTEP won like 8 or 9 games this year - when did we become attractive to guys from crap teams?

100 percent point guard that can shoot/score. Actually Evan played up as well on the U16 MeanStreets program when he was 15 as that team needed a point guard. Evan can create a lot of shots for others. He would have worked well with Fayne and Milik.

get both players in the opening pic of the video....Charlie Moore and Evan G would get ISU a ton of victories. Moore should have stayed at Cal vs transferring to Kansas...what a mistake.

I was surprised Evan did not go to a Dayton as it seemed he was heading that way and then he ended up at UTEP.

I went back to the article to see if they also mentioned Iowa state thinking they might have listed the wrong ISU. The article now says that he has committed to Houston. weird.
