Gilbert is a 247 Sports three-star recruit who played locally at Durango and finished his prep career at Vashon High School in St. Louis, MO. So far this preseason, Gilbert has impressed coaches with his on-ball defensive skills.
Overall, there will be a lot of new faces this season under first-year coach Kevin Kruger, as the Rebels welcome nine scholarship transfers. Kruger is a former UNLV student-athlete and assistant coach. It should be an exciting season, so join us as we go Runnin’ with the Rebels on YurView – November 15, December 15, and December 22.
