    Sign is correct, I meant to say verbal commit.

    As for playing two sports: I've talked to a couple high school kids who at one point considered football and baseball, about 4 years ago. The problem is the offseasons and expected training. Football is for the most part, a year round sport in NCAA, as is baseball. One kid, who's playing in the PAC12 for football, when he was a sophomore, was told he could play both but would have to pick one after Frosh year, and it would keep him back a year. He was intrigued by getting the shot to play both so he could experience both and make a decision then, but ultimately knew (even at that age) he was going to have to pick one. His HS coaches urged him not to attempt two major sports in college.

    Suggs loves football, but knows it's over for him after high school.

    Huh?

    If anything, I view this as mixed news.

    "Ya never know big bro".

    Playful rejection perhaps?

    Huh? You aren’t going to spoil the announcement of your college choice and end all speculation and drama beforehand unless it’s to your closest friends and family. So yeah he’s not just going to say “Yeah Geno, of course it’s Spokane”

    +1. He could be a part of something extremely special, and we've seen some special teams.

    Any chance that he could reclassify? He would start from day one.

    Son of a... and hes a high school junior! He is head and shoulders the best guard weve seen GU recruit and have a shot at.

    Devils' advocate here. How come the super blues aren't after him? Baylor, GT, Iowa State, Marquette don't cut the mustard in that dept.

    Hereís something I found where Kansas, UNC has/had interest. Maybe itís because they donít wanna use their time on a possible football prospect? I honestly have no clue and think thatís a terrific question

    Odd indeed.

    I have listened and/or read to 3 separate interviews where Suggs himself brings up Duke.

    In one interview, he was recorded as saying the Duke Coaches and him were talking often, sometimes daily. This interview was from Summer of 2018.

    Obviously the interest is/was there, but possibly one sided at this point.

    I have felt all along he has been waiting for that elusive Duke offer, which has yet to materialize.

    If Duke offers, based on his previous commentary, I would assume he'd take it.

    But then again, Jalen is a bit all over the place. Very casual, cool, & changes his "tune" quite often.

    Keep in mind, 3 months ago, he was telling people he planned to be a dual sport D1 athlete, play football and bball.

    That has settled....

    He is a tough read whose tweets should be taken with a grain of salt based on his all-over-the-board interest and schools.

    Indeed. That’s the concern. Verbal isn’t worth the paper it’s not printed on.

    This is a very good forum for us. Only second time I've been on here. It has taken a little time for me to begin to begin to think about the future of the Zags. It has been inspiring to read. There are certainly some really fantastic players to think about. Regarding Mr Suggs, I think he'd be the prefect guard to lead us to another Final Four and maybe championship. He is everything Brock Ravet is accept he is 6'5" and dunks like a small forward. His defense also appears to be better. Suggs is a great passer, great dribbler, very good shooter, but so is Ravet. Suggs should be priority #1 in the 2020 class.

    Thanks for the videos, guys. I really enjoyed them. Suggs, imo, could be the best Gonzaga guard ever. And that says a lot, and all I need to say. Yes! He's better than NWG. He's also more athletic and taller.

    Go Zags!!!

    Don’t see this posted yet. The fact Jalen doesn’t have any negatives with GU is promising. Lots of big time football interest it sounds like, unfortunately

    Great article the fact he is talking to another schools reporter and talks so highly about GU confirms much of what I heard about his visit.
