Last year, Gittens averaged 14.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game, and is rated a three star recruit by Rivals. Eric Bossi of Rivals has this to say:
Richaud Gittens is a very nice pickup for #WeberState. Bouncy athlete, great first step and his shot isn't bad. Explosive/transition playerHe fits with Weber State's recent theme in recruiting - which is to go after explosive athletes. They did it with their 2012 recruiting class, and appear to be headed that way with 2013 as well. He has long arms, and can really get after it in the open court. He may need a year or two to refine his game, but that is a luxury the Wildcats can afford in with their depth.
It appears that as of now WSU will have two scholarships available next year, and one of them will be used on Gittens.
