    He did this for himself and maybe to appease his best friends. He obviously loves Gonzaga and Dom/Julian.

    He is a Gonzaga Bulldog for now. We can enjoy it until he's not

    His game tonight may have increased some of those Aussie offers.

    Would imagine parents would be front and center and that ESPN would at least flash them.

    What are you even talking about? LeBron said “I’m taking my talents to South Beach” Even if Suggs had said “I’m taking my talents to Gonzaga”, which he didn’t, who cares? Stick to the main basketball board. Your consistent bashing of 17 year olds is so lame.

    He had his two sisters behind him so that counts as something

    Bottom line. I hold Gonzaga to a very high regard and although I know recruiting is a filthy but necessary business, this kind of half arse commitment is an affront to Few, the program and the school. Out.

    Everyone just do your best to ignore Jazz’s idiocy. In a vacuum over the last 3 days here is what has happened to Gonzaga basketball:
    We started a new decade ranked #1 in the country.
    We finished the last decade as perhaps the best team in america over the course of that decade.
    The top pg on America committed to Gonzaga (whether he shows up or not).

    Yet Jazz has had zero positive things to say about our program. Just ignore him and focus on Suggs with the hope that he arrives in spokane.

    Have you seen Chet? As multiple board members have said, regardless of his ranking, he is extremely skinny. Therefore, I do not feel he is a good reclassification candidate. His body needs to fill out more. He's a great talent. I never denied that. But he needs weight. People are ranking him based on his long term potential.

    The boy literally crosses up Steph Curry in a pick up game. I have to disagree with you.

    Pretty sure that I heard him say that he "was" considering going overseas, not that he still is.

    He also said he was very serious about the commitment.

    You need a transcript? He was asked how serious he was about the commitment and he said "very serious" then he goes into talking about pro ball. Thats a quote taken out of context for the sake of content.

    Why make a commitment announcement if you emphasize overseas is a serious possibility. There's no foreseeable deadline to force this commitment. I wish it would have been about a college and sport choice (focus on basketball) more than an overseas professional statement. Truly a deflating commitment... if you can even call it that.

    Jazzdelmar my friend,

    I promised better content with the commitment

    I suspect if he gets an offer in the 500k range that he will head overseas but they haven’t offered that much “yet” but there is a very real possibility that they will hit that mark. I’m very happy he committed to Gonzaga but I will be surprised if he is on the roster next year. He is one hell of a talent and long term he would benefit going to Gonzaga but short term the money is very difficult to resist.

    $500k is really not that much money for Suggs, in my opinion, considering his future prospects. With all of the talk about his parents wanting him to go overseas, I hope he takes his own path and does what he wants, as opposed to letting himself be pressured into something.
