Nice kid, but lets hope the Zags set the bar a little higher for the precious remaining scholarships for 2010

The bigger concern could be the lack of schollies available for 2011 class. If Austin leaves early (whether this summer or next), then we'll have just the one schollie available when SG graduates.

Speaking of 2011, does anyone know if Kyle Wiltjer is still on the staff's radar? Although he'll have the P10 sharks after him, it seems GU is in a perfect position to recruit someone like Kyle. He's a NW kid, goes to a catholic HS, and has probably watched a lot of Zags games over the years (I'm guessing). Plus, given that we seem to be set for guards and wings for the foreseeable future, Wiltjer could be nice fit. Also, from the footage I've seen, he appears to have the ability to handle the ball and shoot from the outside, which would fit well in the Zags' offensive scheme. But if Wiltjer took that one available schollie, that'd mean no Kingma, Hanstad, or Johnson... What to do, what to do?

Wiltjer is high on the staff's list.
