    Great and logical question regarding Kessler. This is/will continue to be a crutch the Zags lean on. What I know (and we all assume) is that Walker wants to be in the NBA and have a long career....

    Yep, there is and should be some guarded optimism there. The Kessler family has grown extremely close to Powell. Kessler is announcing a list of 6 schools on Friday that Gonzaga will surely make. ...

    This explains the logic of the Barthelemy offer. If we can add a 4 star pg and still wait on Suggs if need be, that is exactly what we should and will do. Again, Suggs is a guy you wait for but if...

    Let me clarify a few things that are ongoing on this chain:
    1) There is zero chance that Jazz has inside info on the Suggs recruitment. I don't know Jazz and perhaps he has a "source" but his...

    Pretty straightforward stuff here guys. Look at our roster, we lack guards and I know the focus is on adding depth there. As mentioned above, only 247 ranks foreign players and they have Barthelemy...

    I'm a Michigan football fan and they are loaded at the QB position. My point was more of: If Suggs wants to focus on hoops but still be a part of big time football for one year, then Michigan...

    Personally, I don't think this is alarming. Suggs is a top 15 recruit so of course big name schools will be after him. Michigan already has a commit from a top 50 type pg and Suggs isn's going...

    UNC also added two of the top 5 overall grad transfers as well. They went from not being ranked in preseason polls to a possible top 8 team in the country. They are good.

    No it won’t impact Suggs because I don’t believe we will take Grimes if we do not have a strong comfort that he will be immediately eligible. In other words, he would play immediately and then enter...
