Wow that is huge for how little we heard about him here in town the majority of his season. Only until the very end of regular season play was his name ever on the news.

So where exactly are we national recruiting class wise (not that it actually means how good a team will be IMO but fun to know)?

Not to get all political, but that's the first time my vote has counted in Seattle in a long time.

Me too Zagregious...

Sounds like we have a great kid coming in. We should have solid point guard play for a long time between David, Kevin and Chris.

Anyone know if he has a 'mix tape' video? My Googler skills might not be up to snuff - I don't see anything.

A very pleasant surprise. Makes the outlook--longterm and short-term--all the more brighter for the 2011'ers.

I could see this a month ago. As Chris recovered from his injury his game kept improving every day. By February he was really playing great right through the play offs. I am very excited to have him onboard.

I saw that he was named to the state 4A team with Gary Bell Jr. - the other two seniors (one was a jr) were going to Pac 10 schools (WSU/UO) - - can anyone tell me objectively if Sarbaugh would have been recruited to a high division one program had he not literally been born a Zag? I know it is speculation, but i was under the impression we were getting someone who would be akin to a walk-on b/c his tuition is covered by the late Dr. Sarbaugh (God Bless his beautiful soul - best history professor I had) as a family waiver.

TNT named Sarbaugh to all-state team (also GBJ). Tia Presley of Prep made Girls team. Matty McIntyre of G-Prep named Boys Coach of Year.

That's for sure.

I find it interesting that there is all this hype on UW's incoming freshman Wroten, yet Bell and Sarbough are winning the awards.... Am I missing something?

From the ST article:


Sarbaugh, however, carried state-title aspirations. He spent much of the regular season sacrificing his scoring totals to make sure his teammates felt like key contributors, preparing them for the postseason.

"The whole season, everyone was jawing at me," Sarbaugh said. " 'You're going to GU (Gonzaga), you should be scoring more points.' I just felt like, during the season, if everyone was involved, we'd stick together more, be more unified."

He also played through a sprained left knee that felt better late in the season, but still needs time to heal completely.

"The word I use is competitive greatness," Bullpups coach Matty McIntyre said. "He did everything the coaching staff asked him to do. I feel blessed to be his coach. He didn't have to put up huge numbers to be a well-respected athlete. He would do whatever the team and coaches asked him to do. I just have a great deal of respect for a player like that."

I agree completely.
In short you can throw out all the stats and numbers, Chris is simply the kind of Zag you want on your team.

That's for sure.

Wroten is a 97 on ESPN, and their 14 ranked player. Bell is a 94, ranked 64. But most people perceive Wroten as a hotdogging punk, as evidenced by his off-the-backboard alleyoop to himself dunk at the final buzzer in the Puyallup game, for a ten point final margin. Puyallup wasn't contesting it.

His playground allstar game and attitude apparently don't go over well with the people who vote for these awards.

And Sarbaugh's tournament performance was transcendent.
