I'm thrilled about the addition of Kyle Wiltjer to the Gonzaga program and can't wait to see Knight work his magic on him during this red shirt year. That being said, I think it's unfair for people to expect Wiltjer to be the second coming of Olynyk. What we should be hoping for is Wiltjer to be the best Wiltjer he can be... that should be good enough, with the team he is playing on next year, to make us relevant in any Final Four conversation.

We cannot rely totally on Wiltjer- when he comes out hot- he will see doubleteaming and physical play.

Wiltjer will carry his weight but I'm wondering why we cannot do same for Edwards, Meikle, and Nunez, et al.

He could benefit from addition of Sabonis next year!

I hope he likes to rebound

I finally had a chance to watch the KREM 2 special on his redshirt training program and a thought occurred to me. Assuming that we see an Olynik "like" transformation, there will obviously be some consideration by Knight to take a better paying job. As I have no inside connections with the team, I figured I'd bring it up here. Could he instead of going to the highest bidder make a how to video and sell it for a hefty price tag? It seems to be the best of both worlds. He stays here and makes more money. I have no idea if this may violate any NCAA rules or if it's something that he would want to do. But thought it would make for an interesting alternative.
