    PG is our #1 need. Not a knock on Perkins, he is here at most 1 more year and they would be a great backcourt tandem.
    I know people are high on Ayayi based on practice reports, but I'd like to bring in more of a proven commodity in Williams.
    Takes the pressure off Ayayi, IMO. He's very young.

    How exactly is a high school kid more of a "proven commodity" than a college freshman that has been practicing with and against a top 10 team all year?

    I think he has a starting spot on Gonzaga if he commits. JMO on that.

    I think he would replace Silas in the starting line up, that would look something like this:

    Perkins
    Williams
    Norvell/Kispert/Hachimura
    Tillie/Hachimura
    Clarke
    I'm playing Clarke in front of Tillie and giving sophomore Larsen the nod at 5.

    He never visited. Never had any intention to sign here. Could it be similar to a NWG situation, where he decides to re-evaluate and actually explore GU? Sure. But I don't think so. I think the dribble-drive motion offense would be enticing for a player of his caliber, talent and skill set. But he's not coming here. Neither is Jordan. OKG or it ain't meant to be.

    Ducks have Payton Prichard and Will Richardson for next year at the point

    Agree!

    He never visited and don’t believe he will...no interest imo

    F1D don’t
    See how you keep Rui from starting at the “3” and Zach WILL start at the two if he’s healthy

    Well, Few and I are close, but he doesn't take coaching advice from me and I don't take marketing advice from him

    (100% true, except the 1, 2 and 3rd facts in that sentence!)

    Few doesn't seem to take advice from me either, no matter how loud I scream from my couch....

    Go ZAGS!

    Former, you're starting to sound like Woohoo!! I don't think this board is big enough for both of you!!

    But we don't play nobody.

    I don't know about net casting, but casting a flyrod is something coach Few can help you with.

    I bet he recommits to Arizona when all this noise quiets down some.
    "After holding open practices during his first three seasons, Romar closed them to reporters last season, citing the "Gonzaga factor." He felt his team was compromised before the 2004-05 game against the Zags, that the opponent awaiting him and beating him 99-87 in Spokane seemed a little too well prepared."

    Just my opinion...has he even visited the campus? One does not start to understand the magical powers of Zagland until they've actually been on campus.

    42 years after graduation, and it's still my fountain of youth.

    I'm sure Will Richardson would be thrilled to have him sign with Oregon

    Also, inside the kennel says: "Man....@JoshGershon dropping some VERY interesting news on the premium board ($$)- "

    If you go to their board, you see the top post is by Josh Gershon and titled "Brandon Williams Update".

    I think he is coming. Only thing we really need to add for next year is another PG to take some pressure off Perkins. Top 3 team next year. Best in the MWC. Best on the west coast.
