Billy Kennedy put together an impressive 2015 recruiting class and have solid returnees but they needed depth at the point guard position.
On Sunday evening, the Aggies learned that Anthony Collins has committed to their program and will be eligible immediately (college graduate).
The 6’1″ point guard from Houston, Texas averaged 7.1 points per game, 5.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in his final year at South Florida.
The point guard is not a factor from the perimeter but he does see the floor well and has a high basketball IQ.
Collins received a hardship medical waiver after the 2014 season as he was limited to only eight games due to swelling in his left knee.
In addition to Collins and his ability to set the pace of the game, Kennedy is adding 4-star center Tyler Davis, 4-star big man Elijah Thomas, 4-star small forward D.J. Hogg and 4-star shooting guard Admon Gilder. Texas A&M will return their leading scorer from last season, Danuel House, in addition to experienced players like Jalen Jones, Alex Caruso and Alex Robinson.
Texas A&M qualified for the NIT this season and should have a shot at making the NCAA Tournament next season.
