Burton's reputation is rising too quickly for me to be happy. A guy who started out as a potential project player is now attracting attention from BCS and elite D1 programs. Not good for GU chances of catching a diamond in the rough.

Let's hope for a quick commitment in July.

It's almost impossible these days to hide diamond in the rough players in Burton's neck of the woods. The greatest thing Gonzaga has going for itself is that he's undersized. It's likely going to turn off some BCS powers. That and those JP Batista highlight reels, which demonstrate how an undersized 5 can thrive in Gonzaga's offense.
