Wow!
I knew it would be good, but this from the 247 Report on Ballo....


The addition of Ballo gives Gonzaga a banner recruiting class that consists of six total recruits. Ballo joined fellow international standouts Pavel Zakharov and Martynas Arlauskas, plus four-star prospects Drew Timme, Anton Watson and Brock Ravet to make up their current class.

Gonzaga's recruiting class ranks No. 4 in the 247Sports Team Rankings with the addition of Ballo.

Congrats to the staff for putting this class together. I'm enjoying the ride this year, but wow, these are some high prospects.

Biggest difference between the two is Timme and Ballo are 5 star recruits on Rivals and 4 star on 247.

Has Gonzaga ever had a top ten or even top twenty recruiting class before this class ?

Throw in grad transfer Jordan Mathews for that one. That class might have been slightly underrated.

If this No. 1/No. 4 class turns out to be as good as the No. 20 class, I’ll take it.

Looks like the numbers are influenced in part by the amount of recruits that you have coming in which I find a bit odd.

Each service has a difference balance between quality/quantity. More recruits definitely influences things, but having an extra 3* recruit doesn't do much for your rankings.

In retrospect, I bet 247 wishes they could take another shot at ranking that class...

really only the ranking for rui was significantly off and perfectly understandable...ranking internationals is a difficult task because they are basically only going off video clips. 247 should be commended just for trying...other sites don't even bother.

I love that we have a class with 3-4 future NBA players (some of them first-rounders), and 1 guy who probably would have ended up making money in Europei, and it's ranked 20th.
