Wow. Brandon ahead of #5 Reeves Nelson, verbal commit to UCLA. Rivals has Nelson #79 on their 150, #23 on their PF rankings, with a 4-star rating.

Rivals has Brandon (http://rivalshoops.rivals.com/viewprospect.asp?pr_key=87016&sport=2) as a 3-star so far, not included in their top 150 and doesn't have him included in their top PF rankings.

Though Hicks has Bak Bak as the #10 PF in the west, Scout still doesn't have a "real" prospect page (http://scouthoops.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=3747106) with bio and school list and show him as only a 2-star. Go figure ... Busy, busy, bbusy, I guess, over on Scout ...

Regardless, it's apparent Brandon is rapidly ceasing to be a hidden gem ...

Good to see Hicks thinks that highly of Brandon. Of the three bigs Gonzaga is bringing in for visits, my preference is Dower + Davies. We need bangers more than SF types. Just my personal preference.

Would a commitment from Dower hurt our chances with Brandon Davies? Both are PF's and in the same recruiting class. I would love to have both in our front court :)

Doubtful. Good players like to be playing with other good players. They don't want to feel like they're the only good player at their position, it just puts too many expectations on the guy. Bigs can't play all 40 minutes.
