FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State men’s basketball Head Coach Larry Eustachy on Thursday announced the addition of former Arkansas – Little Rock guard John Gillon to the Rams’ roster.

"We are really excited to add John to our program,” said Eustachy. “He had a very good freshman year at the Division I level.  He is very fast in the open floor and can really put pressure on opposing defenses. John was one of the best guards in the country at drawing fouls and converting foul shots, but on top of his physical abilities he is also a very good student with high character"

Gillon, a native of Houston, Texas, made an immediate impact at UALR as a true freshman in 2012-13. He played in 27 of the team’s 32 games, notching 12 starts and finishing second on the team scoring 10.6 points per game, to go along with 2.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per contest.

He joined the Trojans’ program following a standout career at Houston’s Strake Jesuit High School, where he was a two-time all-district honoree, leading the team to back-to-back district championships during his junior and senior campaigns.  As a senior in 2011-12, John was named the District 19-5A Offensive Player of the Year.

Gillon will sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules, and will have three years of collegiate eligibility remaining when he steps on the court as a redshirt sophomore in 2014-15.

The Rams graduated five senior starters in 2012-13 but have bolstered the roster throughout recruiting calendar, with Gillon becoming the seventh newcomer added to the roster by Eustachy and his staff.

The Rams signed three players – high school guards David Cohn and Carlton Hurst, and junior college big man Marcus Holt – during the fall early signing period, and have since added J.J. Avila and fellow Division I transfers Dantiel Daniels and Stanton Kidd.
