    As far as I can see, Gonzaga has 16 open offers out there.

    PG- Josh Perkins and Jordan McLaughlin.

    SG- Namon Wright, Sandy Cohen, Trey Kell, Iziahiah Sweeney, Ronnie Harrell and Bryan Alberts.

    SF- Malik Pope, Kameron Chatman and Isaih Bailey.

    PF- Reid Travis, Brekkott Chapman and Josh Martin.

    C- Goodluck Okonoboh and Thomas Welsh.


    Would love to land 3.

    ZZ, can u rate our chances of landing each of them on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being a top chance?

    Without knowing what other offers these players will receive.

    Josh Perkins 2.25 I like our chances. Kentucky and UCLA on him.
    Reid Travis 2 I love our chances.
    Goodluck Okonoboh 5 Wishful thinking here.
    Thomas Welsh 3.5 Gonzaga offered just over a month ago.
    Brekkott Chapman ?
    Josh Martin 3 UW offered 1st Gonzaga 2nd ( 2 dog race? ) Like Donovan Dorsey was.
    Malik Pope 3 Gonzaga is in his top 9 with high interest.
    Kameron Chatman ? Namon Wright and Josh Perkins are friends.
    Isaih Bailey ?
    Namon Wright 3.4 Is friends with Josh Perkins.
    Sandy Cohen 4 Minnesota and Marquette on him.
    Trey Kell 3 San Diego kid going to SDSU?
    Iziahiah Sweeney 2.5 He has high interest in Gonzaga. Do they?
    Ronnie Harrell ?
    Bryan Alberts 3.5 Gonzaga on him early. Seems to be off the radar. Wisconsin has edge.
    Jordan McLaughlin 2.9 Has high interest in Gonzaga. UCLA has edge? Gonzaga did have an in home visit a few months ago with Jordan and family.

    Percentages, not fractions! But they are partials, so you get a 'C' Jazz.

    Kendall Small is 2015. If we don't get a PG for 2014. I think Kendall Small is the closest thing to a slam dunk since Michael Jordan in an All-Star Game.

    Kendall Small 1.25 If we don't recruit a PG in 2014. 2.25 If we land a PG for 2014. I love Kendall Small.

    Default Fractions & Percentages

    Are the same. Just a different way of showing the same value. But we are going from a scale of 1-5 for a value here.

    1 - Being almost a slam dunk.
    2 - Having a great shot.
    3 - Having a decent shot.
    4 - Being a long shot.
    5 - Not a chance.

    Thank you for the breakdown.

    As a collective group - from what I have read here - this seems like a another level of recruiting than we have seen in the past. Of course, one can recruit at any level - question is how many we land.

    Agreed. It's nice to be in the conversation but it's worthless if we don't land them. I'm sure we'll end up with a very good class but it would be great if we ended up with a nationally recognized class. I really feel if we can start landing 1 or 2 top 30 recruits a year we'll start that transition from being a great program to a Duke level program.

    Default Good Company

    Regardless of whether we get a National Letter of Intent from any of these young men, it is - IMO - positive for the GU program to be considered by quality young athletes like these men. I welcome their interest, and I am grateful to GU staff who carefully scout and track and offer the best available players in the country each year.

    Default Playing with Fire

    I agree that in order to take that next step forward we need to go after and hopefully sign top rated recruits. The problem is that we sell ourselves short if we swing and miss on all these potential guys on radar. Kind of hard to have back up plans when most of these guys are being recruited by high majors, its a good chance we could miss on all these guys: Perkins/Reid/Cheatham/Chapman/Kell etc. What then, who do we scramble for, were not going after the 2 and 3 star prospects right now.

    Fractions and percentages are both correct. Or are they decimals?

    Hmmm.

    So far what I see is an average of 3 out of 5. Which really means "maybe" on everyone and the fact is, it is first come first serve.

    Default I would assume

    The recent twitter feed on TSSF is showing that JP may be a GU lean.

    Regarding Travis I don't know, going to be very tough to pull away from Mich St, Minnesota and Stanford, but I believe we are right in the mix. Of course merely my opinion, no insider knowledge.

    We are in the top 5 for Perkins. I still love our chances with Reid Travis. I have not heard anything to change my mind. GU is on these guys big time.

    Not really...SSF tweeted and linked to site showing one recruiting analyst out of about 20 picking JP to GU...the rest picked UCLA with one going Kentucky.

    Just to give a slight bit of context, the one guy who picked Gonzaga happens to be Jerry Meyer who leads the 247sports team and has been covering recruiting for about as long as anyone. He was Rivals head guy for years.

    He followed up his choice by saying he recently heard information about Perkins and Gonzaga that he deemed reliable.

    All this must be taken with a grain of salt but it continues to be an exciting time.

    I should have said I saw the tweets on TSSF. But gotcha. Glad to know we are in the running, would be a huge get.

    It's just awesome that we're not only in the conversation, but also have received early visits (nearly impossible 5 years ago).

    While I'm not holding my breath, it's easy to acknowledge that the success the program has been able to sustain over the last 14 seasons puts us in the conversation.

    Default I agree

    Keeping the interest of highly touted recruits consistently now we just need to land a FEW.

    I peg our program comparable to a Butler and the likes of Memphis. Schools that come up from a smaller market but are able to sustain success and attract top talent. Wish I could be in hibernation mode until fall and wake up with the commitment of Reid/Perkins/Sabonis etc.

    If I could chose one, I think I'd lean Sabonis. Can't teach pedigree...
