    Can’t disagree on the undergrad transfers. The ones that came in after a year at another school have been great.
    Chandler and Katie are two of the current transfers that have had a positive impact on the team. Both I believe were on GU’s radar while in high school.

    Question.. does the player contact the university they would like to attend after they request a release from their current contract?

    Go Zags!!

    My Bad.

    Thanks Skip for pointing out I only missed the two most obvious transfers, the ones currently on the team.

    I guess I could have used another cup of coffee before making that post.

    Nobody can talk with a student athlete while they are under scholarship with another team. The student "athlete" has to be a "free agent" before they can be contacted. I would assume there is nothing wrong with a student contacting a university after they have been released from their scholarship.

    Thought I would throw out there what I know or at least think I know from the summer recruiting so far. I was able to talk with the staff over the weekend. They keep things pretty hush hush I think because a lot of the work they are doing can change very quickly with AAU coaches, High School coaches, parents and the actual girls themselves. During the first 2 weeks of July our coaches have been in Portland, Oakland, San Jose, LA, Chicago, Kansas City, Orlando and Seattle. They have a quite week this week and then back out there for the remainder of July. Still hearing they want to sign 2 more to the 2019 class. Alyssa Pili is very high on the Zags list but not expected to declare her choice until fall. I think that would be a good one to get. As far as I know there are no grad transfers this year.

    I see that we have made Alissa Pili top 5. USC, ASU, Pepperdine and TCU are the others. She is rumored to be on campus again for an offical visit in early October.

    If you get a chance take a look at Charolette Whittaker from New Zealand's highlights. Zag coaches were over there last weekend and she is having a campus visit this week. 6' 3" post that looks she can play. Hope she has a great visit.

    Thanks for the heads up Zag on the Run.

    The highlight videos focus primarily on her offensive skills, so don't show much of her defensive skills beyond some good anticipation on steals and the occasional block.

    My thoughts after viewing several of her highlight videos:
    - She seems to run the court pretty well
    - She's a lefty.
    - She is very aggressive taking the ball to the hoop
    - She positions herself so the guards have somewhere to pass her the ball (pass her open).
    - Her shooting range appears to be 12-15' and in. I did not see her take a single 3.
    - Her body structure is larger than our current staff.
    - She seems very willing to in part her will on her opposition. Something we need.

    Here are some direct links to some of her videos:

    She looks very promising. Hope she has a great visit.
