I wonder if they'll ask him about his future?

How did he get to L.A so fast??
Thanks for the heads up.

What a wonderful young man.
The reactions of him, Mathews and Melson when Kobe walked in was priceless.
All I can say is...he left the door open....

Did they ask?

They asked what his plan was for next year. Nigel smiled and said he hadn't thought about that yet, was still decompressing from the final four, and that he will now start figuring out his plan.

Did they ask?

The hostette asked what was in his future and he said he was weighing options or words to that effect and that he had made no firm decision.

He can do a video interview from anywhere. Being in Los Angeles before the semester is over suggests he's interviewing agents.

EDIT: Forgot about the Wooden Award Zagceo mentioned.

One thing is 100% for sure.........he will test the waters. Makes no sense not to.

It's interesting that DraftExpress doesn't mention either NWG or Collins. Would've at least thought Collins would get a mention. Maybe because he wouldn't go unless he got a first round look?

Also, Swanigan and Grayson Allen look ranked.

DE has them mocked at #11 and #40 in 2018. Unless you are talking about the EE list.

I think they are likely to update their lists soon to factor in the NCAA tourney, but yes, both guys are viewed as 2018 prospects.

Here is their early entry list:

If that is the same list as in the other thread then Monk and Bluitt are so good they are mentioned twice each.

I meant to say that Swanigan and Allen look UNDER ranked in DE's 2017 mock. Missed a key word there...

2 Video clips from the interview are up on ESPN. If you go to the Gonzaga page they should be at the top. Nothing but love for Nigel Williams-Goss, still blows my mind that he had a bad reputation at UW because he has been awesome in every conceivable way at GU.

The bad rep was created by upset fans after he left the program.

I doubt ZC goes unless he is top 15

It's also possible NWG is waiting to see what Collins does.

He didn't say it in a bad way, but in the redshirt players chapter of Glory Hounds he seems very unimpressed with their staff's level of preparation for games.

Not saying he had a bad attitude, but when you are a competitor like he is, perhaps sometimes one is warranted.

Yup. He could average 20 and 12 fist team All American, national player of the year and go top five if he comes back. Thing is he'll probably be top 20 this year already.
