Izzo on Schilling:

"I'm excited about Gavin Schilling's addition to our program. He comes from a tremendous program and a great family. He defends, rebounds and runs the court very well. He's a great worker that wants to learn and improve. Not only will he be a young freshman who doesn't turn 18 until next November, he's also young to the game, having picked up the game later in life than most college players. With that in mind, I look forward to watching him grow and develop."

Schilling recently came in at No. 125 in the Rivals150.
