South Carolina transfer power forward Anthony Gill has committed to Virginia over Ohio State, according to multiple sources, including Rivals and The Daily Progress. Gill, a 6'8", 235 pound rising sophomore, will need to sit out for a year before getting any playing time in 2013-2014, per NCAA's rules.

Entering the off-season and the post-Mike Scott era, head coach Tony Bennett and company knew they would need to need to find some help at both the guard and forward positions, and after losing T.J. McConnell to Arizona, Gill appeared to be the staff's top acquisition prospect.

Gill -- or "A.G." as he is affectionately called -- averaged 7.6 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year as a freshman. He had a field goal percentage of 45.3%, starting 26 of 31 games.
