Chet Holmgren plays for the same high school as Jalen Suggs. Obviously needs to add a great deal of strength but has a lot of skill/upside if he can add the weight. I believe he’s dad is a former player for the University of Minnesota.

Not from what I’ve heard either. He’s had a lot of big games this year, though.

The real catch at Cashmere is Hailey Van Lith. She has her pick of schools, including UConn. Would be a great get if GU had any chance at her (doubtful).

Why? All you need is one big to inbound to another big at half-court who pivots & throws a lob to the basket where any one of the remaining 3 bigs go up & dunk it.

Really like Bittle but he runs with West Coast Elite - he’s not going to GU....Gregg on the other hand seems very likely given it seems like it was said GU is his dream school.

Another 2021 big deserves his own thread - Paolo Banchero out of O’Dea in Seattle. Top 5 national recruit in our backyard who was at GU team camp last year.

One of Coach Few’s sons is 2021 and plays AAU - coaches have seen plenty of Banchero - only problem is both his parents went to UW so they’ll be hard to beat most likely.

From what I have heard Banchero is not a serious option at this point, hints why he does not have his own thread. We are aware of him of course, but UW seems like the logical landing spot at this point in time. Things can change though.

Gregg will end up being our first 2021 commit I have been saying that for awhile now and will reiterate that once he is offered expect a commitment very shortly after.

Bittle we really like and he has mentioned he likes us to, I would not worry about what AAU program he runs with, as GU is a national brand now and we can land kids from any level of high school/AAU program.
