VCU Basketball Recruiting: Commits/Considering


Jonathan Williams 

  • 5'11/170lbs
  • Point Guard
  • Class of 2014
  • St. Benedicts Prep
  • Offers from Wagner and Wisconsin. 
  • A Slashing PG with great speed in the open court, Williams has the ability to stay up in the air and absorb contact well to finish at the rim. Williams is a good floor general who will find the open man, but can create off the pick and roll for himself. Williams' outside shot is still improving, but he does have good form on his shot. 
 Justin Tillman

  • 6'8/200lbs
  • Small/Power Forward
  • Class of 2014
  • Pereshing High School
  • Offers from Xavier, Providence, Iowa State, and Dayton.
  • Tillman can really get up and down the court fast for such a  big guy. He has a long wing-span to block shots and he can get off the ground quick to dunk the ball. He has a smooth game overall inside the paint and can extend out to make a jump shot.

Terry Larrier                                          
  • 6'7/200lbs                                     
  • Small Forward   
  • Class of 2014   
  • ESPN Top 100 Recruit(#40)
  • The Phelps School
  • Offers from VCU, UCONN, Florida, Miami, Marquette, Minnesota, Penn State, and St. John's.
  • Terry Larrier was VCU's most prized prospect that they were trying to land. Larrier posses great athleticism to finish above the rim. Larrier is a very long player so he is a matchup nightmare. He has the potential, especially in VCU's system, to become an excellent defensive player. His game is very smooth and calm, but he can be an aggressive scorer when needed to be. He has a good outside shot to make defenses play tight on him. Only thing he needs to improve in his ball handling and get his weight up. He is a certified stud and will make an impact right when he steps on campus.

Mike Gilmore          
  • 6'8/205lbs
  • Power Forward
  • ESPN Top 100 Recruit(#76)
  • Class of 2014
  • James S. Rickards High School
  • Offers from VCU, Kansas State, and Miami.(Final 3)
  • Mike Gilmore is a skilled big man. He  can knock down threes and get up and down the court. His athleticism shows with his ferocious dunks and block shots. Gilmore just had an official visit to VCU this past weekend with Terry Larrier (September 13th-15th). Gilmore will have to gain much more weight to be able to play against collegiate big men and also become better in the post. Gilmore  is a high upside prospect that can turn into a special player in the right system.
