    Pretty impressive two days for Pavel Zahkarov. 2020 big with Montverde is skilled, tough and productive. One of the best junior prospects I’ve seen this year in the frontcourt

    Sounds like he can be either 2019 or 2020, from what I am hearing it actually depends on what the Zags want at this time.

    I believe it depends on the departures at the end of this season whether he will be 2019 or 2020. I suspect it will be 2019 and regardless of departures his other option is to undergo the Olynk Clinic. Regardless Pavel is definitely Gonzaga bound the only thing missing is the formal announcement.

    “Pavel has the size and strength to dominate the paint, but he also has great outside touch and feel for how to play,” Montverde coach Kevin Boyle Jr. said. “Once he adjusts to playing in the U.S., I expect him to really start putting his athleticism and ability to run the floor and play on the perimeter on display. He’s as good as any true big man we have had at Montverde offensively, and at 17 years old he has the potential to be a major impact player at the highest levels of college basketball.”



    Dave Arsenio on Pavel "He’s a 6-10 forward that is physically imposing and is a force at grabbing rebounds."

    Steve Keller on Pavel "1st look at 6’11 Jr Pavel Zakharov from Russia and at Montverde CBD. Kid is big, strong, mobile & can score well. On top of that he is nasty & plays hard. Today people throw out “1 & Done” like candy at Christmas. This kid could really be one."

    Thanks for the post I really enjoy the pictures and the quotes! Hope he commits soon, I thought it might be during early signing period from what I was hearing, but we only have a few days left there.

    More detailed Pavel blurb from Evan Daniels on 247 today.

    One of the best prospects at the Prep Showcase this past weekend was 6-foot-10 post player Pavel Zakharov. Having watched him at the European Championships this past summer, we knew he was good. But he exceeded expectations in New Haven. He has legitimate size and the type of body that will fill out. His hands are terrific, and he consistently made difficult catches in traffic. His touch is deft and he can score it with his back to the basket, particularly over his left shoulder. Zakharov also has a good feel for the game, advanced footwork, plays with patience on the block and is a talented passer. Throw in a 7-1 wingspan, a 8-10.5 standing reach and impressive athleticism and he’s quite the prospect.

    Guess he saw this post and realized he had to send in the paperwork.

    More stuff about Pavel, plus a summary of links to info about him:

    First, he is from Russia and attends CBD Montverde, which is distinct from the regular Montverde program. Hence, he's not listed on the Montverde roster, but rather on the CBD Monteverde Prep National roster.

    Adam Zagoria piece covering Pavel's signing with Gonzaga:

    2019 Russian big man Pavel Zahkarov Signs with Gonzaga



    NEW HAVEN, Conn. —Pavel Zahkarov, the 6-foot-10 big man from Saint Petersburg, Russia playing for CBD Montverde Academy, signed his NLI with Gonzaga on Monday.

    Zahkarov was one of the major standouts at the National Prep Showcase and went for 18 points and 11 rebounds on Sunday in Monverde’s 74-67 loss to Sunrise Christian (KS)

    On Saturday, Zahkarov had 9 points and 7 rebounds in a 78-68 loss to Putnam Science.

    Zahkarov joins Drew Timme, Anton Watson, Brock Ravet, and Martynas Arlauskas as the fifth commit in Gonzaga’s 2019 class.

    “Pavel has the size and strength to dominate the paint, but he also has great outside touch and feel for how to play,” Montverde coach Kevin Boyle Jr. said. “Once he adjusts to playing in the U.S., I expect him to really start putting his athleticism and ability to run the floor and play on the perimeter on display. He’s as good as any true big man we have had at Montverde offensively, and at 17 years old he has the potential to be a major impact player at the highest levels of college basketball.”

    Zahkarov helped Russia place 4th in the 2018 FIBA Euros with strong performances against France and Lithuania.
    (There's a little snippet of video in the piece you can look at if you wish.)

    Evan Daniels piece announcing the signing in 247 Sports

    After watching Zakharov in our second setting, he's slotted No. 37 overall and as the No. 9 center prospect in the Top247.

    At 6-foot-10, Zakharov has good size for the position, terrific hands and touch around the basket, plus impressive athleticism and mobility. His feel for the game and passing ability from the block and high post also standout.

    At the FIBA u18 European Championships, Zakharov averaged 7.3 points and five rebounds in seven games for Russia's u18 team. He connected on 15 of his 31 field goal attempts in the event.
    247 Sports rankings for 2019: As noted in Evan Daniels piece above, Pavel's ranked #38 (Daniels said #37, but that's changed as of today). 2019 Zag recruits ranked:

    #33 - Anton Watson
    #38 Oavel Zakharov
    #44 - Martynas Arlauskas
    #46 - Drew Timme
    #92 - Brock Ravet

    "Savkov adds MVP award to Russia's gold" Pavel played in both the U16 and U18 FIBA contests. First, in the U16 contests:

    SARAJEVO (FIBA U16 European Championship 2018, Division B) – Having helped Russia secure the FIBA U16 European Championship 2018, Division B title, Pavel Savkov captured the Most Valuable Player award with a stellar individual campaign in Sarajevo.

    The 16-year-old shooting guard put up 13 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists in a victorious title clash against Bosnia and Herzegovina, as the Russian side celebrated an 83-77 victory to claim gold.

    Over the course of the tournament, Savkov averaged 15.9 points, 8,0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals for an average efficiency score of 18.3, the best mark on the trophy-winning Russia team.
    From the FIBA U18 contests: Pavel's team lost in the semi-final to Joel Ayayi's France team: Pavel had 13 points,7 rebounds, and 2 blocks in the game. Box Score

    Pavel's stats for the tournament.




    Schedule for Upcoming Games: Looks like his first game coming up will be January 10 vs. Combine Academy.

    A reminder of Pavel's teammates when he arrives at Gonzaga, with heights added. My gosh, that's a tall bunch!

    So if I'm reading this right, it's basically the JV team. Because Kevin Boyle's son is the head coach of this team. And it looks like Filip's brother is on the team as well. They are 4-5 so far but I can't see any box scores. I wonder why Pavel is not on the varsity team.

    It's not so much a JV team as a parallel varsity team. Definitely looks more like a 'B' squad though. Orangville Prep in Ontario has a similar scenario where they have two varsity teams running out of the same school and the talent is kind of spread out a bit. (one team is definitely better but there are often kids who are better than some guys on the 'A' team)

    Considering they already have Balsa Koprivica & Precious Achiuwa in their frontcourt, perhaps they wanted him on the other team to get more minutes?

    He put up 18/11/4A in 37 min & 9/7/2blks in 26 minutes in two games at the national prep showcase. Petrusev's brother didn't get much run.

    Hoping Few stays in contact with Montverde though. They have two freshmen on their 'A' team from Ontario that have high ceilings. Caleb Houstan is probably the best Canadian in his class and is a 5 star calibre player. Ryan Nembhard is Andrew's brother and I've heard people say he has a higher ceiling.

    I would guess Montverde and Gonzaga are going to pair up a lot in the next few years for recruits. Many of the top international talents are landing there as a prep for college/NBA.

    ZagNative posted in the Dom Harris thread the schedule for the Hoophall Classic, and Montverde plays in the game following Rancho Christian at Noon Spokane time. However, in reading this thread, I'm not sure if Pavel will be playing. Have to assume Montverde sends their primary team for a nationally televised ESPN game.

    Pavel's on the JV team, not the one that will be on tv.

    Soft hands. Agile. Looks like a good prospect with future upside. Not there yet, but promising.

    I think it's a post-grad team. Several 5th year guys doing college prep work, several foreign players. Many D1 guys on the team, none quite a Pavels level though.

    Almost like a prep school year?
