This is going to be a tough one...UW has had such great success putting their players into the first round of the draft these past few years...I hope he realizes his draft status won't decrease coming to GU and he could well be on another FF team in 2020...IMO

I think UW is on the rise, but not sure their first round success will be the same as it has been in the past. Plus Strawther is no a one and done type, his education is important to him and parents are super supportive of him going to school first then looking at the NBA after.

We have had success getting bigs into the NBA, while UW has had success with guards...and Strawther is a guard BUT as you stated they have a new coach, new system (Zone D) and we will have to wait and see...I have only heard of one of UW’s players being mentioned in projected draft boards and that was Thybul(?)...if memory serves the last guard we had drafted was Stepp by the Timberwolves...

As you stated, I feel much more confident in Strawther choosing GU over UW...

Yes our success has been getting bigs drafted, but NWG was drafted just two years ago and Snacks is on draft boards already. Plus Strawther fits our system better than UW's and we are a successful program. Not saying he picks up, just saying we are in a great spot for him.

The crowd was amazingly supportive. They cheered on the Huskies ever time they did anything right even when they were down. The Huskies were within 6 or 8 for a good chunk of the second half. Our crowd would have sat stunned in hushed hysteria if our guys played that badly.

I don’t think recruits are basing their decisions on one game. I hope he was there to see how everybody handled it. Probably shows a player more in a loss vs a blowout win.

My post was more tongue-in-cheek than anything

I agree. I feel pretty confident in what I was told about meeting with Julian, that we might have a slim lead right now. It's still early in the process, but we are in a great position.

like you said, it's still early...many of the "big" name schools tend to get involved later on if they miss out on the 5 star guys...i doubt it comes down to just the zags and marquette...

i've come to the conclusion that a longer a recruit waits to decide, the less likely they are to pick the zags...you're either a zag or you're not.

i'd say timme's recruitment is an excellent counter-example. we were in early, big boys tried but failed to break in later, announced on signing day senior year. similar story for perkins, iirc-- though he verballed in august before signing day.

sure, anything can happen... there's plenty of time left. but we've had recruitment successes that have followed both paths. we've seen nothing but positive updates from the various insiders... i don't see a point in getting down on his recruitment based on some imaginary clock in your head. but that's just me.

We have become one of the big boys. Very few kids we recruit would run to KU or UK or Duke or UNC over us now.

As soon as I said that I knew this would be the name brought up... We were in on others too that back out, but the difference is he never visited either and except Brandon Williams whose dream school was U of A and had already committed there once, most the guys we get on campus are choosing GU over other schools.

half the battle for gonzaga seems to be getting guys on campus...agree that the conversion rate is really high when that happens. in fact, other than the unique b-will case, when was the last time the zags didn't land someone who visited? did jordan brown ever visit?

Jordan Brown never visited campus, honestly as soon as he heard rumblings Rui and Tillie were staying around we were never a full threat to get him. Actually we kind of cooled on him as well and as you can see from Nevada this year, we saw something that made us cool.
