It would be kinda' cool to go right into the heart of the ACC and steal a 5-star away from Duke, UNC and UVA.

Given that he's from Greensboro NC, that he's no secret, and the entire ACC and part of the Big 10 is after him, it is a little odd that we're doing anything beyond a letter to gauge interest.

When I think of very young 5 stars, I instantly think of 6'10 220 lb 16 year olds. The 6'1 shooting guard doesn't leap to mind. I guess they have those, too.

Maybe next year's national championship will gauge his interest.

I don't know anything, so don't take it as fact, but just maybe THIS KID IS SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THE ACC, DUKE AND NC AND JUST WANTS TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM HOME AS HE CAN!

Exactly. With the trajectory of GU's program the 'long shot' is getting shorter. The chances of GU landing anyone they go after have gotten higher. I believe they are high enough now where schools the likes of Dook are not discounting GU's interest in similar recruits.

It makes you wonder if Gonzaga has some sort of "IN" (as they say in college b-ball recruiting circles) with this kid. Classic example: Jordan Mathews being the God son of Donny Daniels. Maybe this kid's dad is a long time friend of one of the coaches? You never know. "INS" are the one thing that can make a kid like this make a surprising school choice.

That’s what I was thinking. If we’re truly showing “strong interest” it’s for a reason. Something else at play.

I wonder if there's a monetary value to having a name on a recruits list. If two 5 star recruits were "seriously interested" in Nevada only because they were paid 10k to pretend to be interested, lets say, I bet other recruits would be looking into why that school is being considered by so prestigious an athlete and consider it as well. FBI will tell us all about it when someone realizes this and monetizes it. :jk:

I just saw on a Jeopardy! clue—and confirmed in a Forbes article—that (face-to-face) word-of-mouth advertising is the most effective tool. It probably goes for recruiting, as well.

No problem. CDC84 asked if there is any connection between a kid from Greensboro and Gonzaga and the only connection I could think of was Kyle Bankhead

DixieZag
04-26-2018, 07:10 AM
I think that the Bankhead connection - though speculation - makes as much sense as any. Wiki tells me that Grnbro is a little bigger than Spokane, it would make sense that a 9th grade kid that is a 5-star has been going to the local D-1 basketball camp for a few years and it is not hard to envision one of the young assistants pulling the kid aside and saying; "You know who you should really consider? And I can set up a meeting ..."

Exactly. He is a member of USA Basketball 3-on-3 tournament team that won Hoopfest.

If in town, take an unofficial visit to a top #10 team that you normally would not visit and have to waste one of your official visits.

No Bankhead, no conspiracy, just in town to win Hoopfest with Team USA.

Maybe if GU shows well, he may make an official visit later. Gonzaga not out much and if he is interested, maybe we get lucky.

To the best of my knowledge we've never recruited a player from Greensboro, NC before. A former Gonzaga player and grad assistant is now an assistant coach at UNC Greensboro and all of a sudden we offer a kid from Greensboro. You think it's just a coincidence? You could be right.

"recruits"? The kid is a 5 star located 30 minutes from Duke. UNCG has zero shot at him, zero. Obviously Bankhead knows of him via coaching contacts in the city(G'boro isn't very big) how difficult would it be for him to call or text Tommy or Few and say "hey, there's a kid here that you should take a look at"? I mean, you honestly think that it's a coincidence that the first kid we ever offered from Greensboro NC is at the same time that a former Zags player and grad assistant is now an assistant in Greensboro? You could be right.

To the best of my knowledge, no USA 3-on-3 team has played in Hoopfest before. The young man did not come here on his own, he came with team USA. If he had no interest in GU, then obviously he would not have taken an unofficial visit to GU this weekend. Having Bankhead less than 30 miles away does not hurt, but I don't think Bankhead's presence will matter much.

If he takes an official visit to GU, I would tend to get a little more excited. Still think our chances of getting him our slim, but having him in Spokane during Hoopfest and him taking an unofficial site visit to GU, is all good. Other than bringing him in during a game at the kennel, we showed as good as we could have.

You're right, it wouldn't be that hard for Bankhead to call. Aside from the lack of difficulty, do you leave room that someone on the staff saw him play at an AAU tournament and made contact? Those things are national events, right?

I mean, Mark Few and staff never target kids who are knockdown shooters and have some bounce to their game. Those kids just don't stand out. Probably had a former player or assistant give them the jump on Grayson Allen a few years ago before offering, too.

McCorkle received an offer from Iowa before ever playing a high school game. I wonder if they had a former player coaching basketball at his middle school? It's preposterous that Iowa could have identified a prospect outside its geographical footprint without help.

Oh, OK I see the disconnect now. You didn't read this thread from the beginning, did you? We offered him way before his team got to Spokane. My point was that for me it is more than mere coincidence that the first kid that we ever offered from Greensboro North Carolina is located in the same city where a former Gonzaga player and grad assistant is now an assistant coach. Again, it could be a mere coincidence but I highly doubt it.

I appreciate the Snark, but we offered Grayson after his junior year I believe. I honestly don't know how much national run a freshman from Greensboro North Carolina got, but he is a five star so I would imagine a lot but again if you think it is purely coincidental that he plays in the same city where our former player and grad assistant coaches, you may very well be right.

thespywhozaggedme
07-02-2018, 12:43 PM
OK, so it is apparent by all of the replies in this thread that I am the only person that thinks there's a remote possibility that Bankhead may have alerted Few or Tommy about this kid and I don't want to beat a dead horse much more than I already have so I will concede that I am probably wrong and it is just a coincidence.

I didn't' at all think it was that "out there" that Bankhead would pull him aside. None. Nor did I think this constituted a "fight" in any way, but then I have a higher tolerance for disagreement than is often healthy.

Jazz, this is exactly the type of player that would show very sincere, very strong interest in us, bc of how we play, the family atmosphere, the national championship we won 2 years prior, (slipped it in), all that ...and we'll be in the last 3 ...and he'll go to either Duke/UNC as his destiny, OR, he will exercise his inner rebel and go to UVA.

Loads of speculation: could be, maybe, no he didn't, yes he did, what actually happened could be, nothing to support, i know a guy whose sister's bff knows prospect and says he said, couldn't be, might, won't, etc. etc. Three pages of drivel, conjecture, speculation, arguments, hypotheticals.

I'm as anxious as anyone ro see the Zags add at least one more player for this year and next. BUT, I don't have any facts, do not control any thing, than you do. Wishing doesn't make it so. The coaches will, if they can. And with several good, uncommitted prospects in Spokane, they will not miss a chance. I'll hope and wait. In the meantime, I'm as bored as you.

Fact: 5-Star Player was in town playing for Team USA for Hoopfest

Fact (According to Spokesman-Review): Said player took an unofficial visit to GU during his time in Spokane.

Fact (According to Spy): Gonzaga has already offered player a scholarship.

With the exception of a few posters trying to tie our former player and former Grad Assistant (Bankhead) to providing "insider" info on the player to the GU coaching staff (as if they were unaware of a 5-star recruit), how is this thread any different from any other thread discussing potential recruits? Not sure why you think this thread has so little value.

Fact: Until the recruit gives a verbal commit and/or signs their LOI, most everything is conjecture.
