I saw this story today in the online Spokesman-Review. The Coeur d'Alene coach is pretty high on Ryan Nicholas of G-Prep. Just how good is this kid? Are the Zags interested in him at all? At 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, it sounds as if he has sort of a Brockman build.

Coeur d’Alene boys basketball coach Kent Leiss has seen several talented post players in his 21 years as a head coach.

None is better than 6-foot-7, 235-pound Ryan Nicholas of Gonzaga Prep.

Leiss made that statement based on watching Nicholas play last summer. The coach was convinced all the more after Nicholas scored a game-high 19 points in Gonzaga Prep’s 58-43 win over CdA in a season-opening game between the teams Tuesday.

“He’s better than Brock Osweiler,” Leiss said ...

He's a solid, smart (3.9 gpa), workman-like, slightly undersized post.

He's already signed with Portland.

Thanks Angelo. I hadn't heard of this kid before seeing Greg Lee's story in the SR.

I am really high on him.
