A couple of mentions about GU from the Daily Word today

-Now the big question is how much money is Stanford willing to pay? Will the Cardinal go out and pay well over $1 million to lure Mark Few from Gonzaga? Will the Cardinal make a run at Notre Dame's Mike Brey or Washington State's Tony Bennett? If they do, then they'll need to pay big bucks to offset the cost of living in the Bay Area. Davidson's Bob McKillop would be a great fit. If the Cardinal want a younger up-and-comer, then Tulsa's Doug Wojcik, winner of the inaugural Collegiate Basketball Invitational, would make sense.

-Expect more early-draft decisions soon from Memphis (Derrick Rose and Chris Douglas-Roberts), Kansas (Brandon Rush, Darrell Arthur, Sherron Collins and Mario Chalmers), North Carolina (Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington), Texas (D.J. Augustin), USC (Davon Jefferson) and Gonzaga (Jeremy Pargo).

Should be interesting to see about the Stanford opening and what choice Pargo makes

I think Pargo wants some feedback and to see how he compares. Expect him to play in K2 next season. But he might not even do the draft thing, he has enough NBA connections to get some excellent feedback w/o entering the draft. Either way, he'll be baaaaaack. :)

Lots of kids on that list have already said that thehy'll be back in school next year. SOunds like lotsa gossipy type things are makin the rounds. Gives the authors something write about but many "facts" are nonsense.

Keep in mind that these basketball writers cannot follow EVERY team so they naturally tend to side with certain teams. Kyle Whelliston=mid majors, Vitale=ACC, Bilas=Big East/ACC, and Katz seems to follow west coast basketball the closest.

This being said, its only natural for Katz to bring up Few and Pargo in his article because he pays the most attention to them.
