Sorry if this has been talked about already...

Percy's Times blog has an article on LSU transfer Aaron Dotson where it mentions Gonzaga as a possible place for him to land. First time I have heard this so far. He was a top 100 coming out of Rainier Beach.

Anyone know if there is any truth to this??

The staff recruited Aaron out of high school, really liked him, but in the end the staff chose Manny Arop...uh, er, um, yeah....that's right.

I imagine if Bryce chooses elsewhere, Aaron could be the next target. Just guessing.

He's signed with Utah (http://thehuskyhaul.com/2011/05/05/aaron-dotson-has-signed-with-utah/), apparently.

Although I don't follow or make a lot of comments on the intracacies of GU recruiting -- I do know this. Gonzaga and Aaron were in close contact, and that contact ended (from GU) when Guy Landry became a Zag.

A recent article about Dotson seems to confirm GoZags had the inside skinny from the jump:

"Dotson ... decided to transfer closer to home. He thought he would end up at Gonzaga. That didn't work out. An opportunity then presented itself at Utah with new coach Larry Krystkowiak."

I also really like Landry. If you haven't seen video of him, do it. This young man has hops folks, and he looks to me like he's a total team player, passes and plays defense. He can also shoot and proved it in the National Junior College Basketball tournament. He's going to move into that 3 spot that Gray left open. It may take time, as it did with Carter, but My bet is on him.

I think I heard that Landry will be getting to GU on the 25th or so. I'm really excited to read some reports on him.

Speaking of Manny, if you go to Gonzaga's site and use the 'Ask Spike' autoanswer-o-rama feature (provided by a booster - most certainly) and ask 'who is the best gonzaga basketball player' it takes you to a roster page where Manny is listed first. Heard it from Spike first.
