    Well that was quick. After announcing his final 5 yesterday, Nix commits to UCLA today.

    Everyone: at some point with top recruits who both play the same position, a decision has to be made. These kids don’t want to play second fiddle to anyone on the court or during the recruiting process. As Caldwell said, once the staff felt comfortable with Suggs, they had a choice to make as Nix was nowhere near as close to confirming a very strong Gonzaga interest. He was literally starting to sort through the process but he did want to feel like the priority of. With Suggs strong interest, we couldn’t provide that in good faith. So, as Caldwell said, we cooled on that recruit and focused 100% on the guy who is extremely interested.

    This is a extremely incorrect generalization. If this were true teams like the Blue bloods wouldn't exist in fact usually top players try to team up and recruit each other much like you see with Dom and Julian. Us backing off had to do more with number of scholarships left and the pieces that mark few wanted.

    This is not usually the case when they play the same position.

    Julian and Suggs are listed at the same position (even tho I think Straw will end up playing the 3). Nix was listed as PG and Suggs is listed as a SG/CG depending on which source you prefer so this still wouldn't have been a problem. But it happens often where two five star recruits commit to the same position UW for example this year, Duke last year, Kentucky last year and almost every year before that. I'm sorry but the argument that schools "back off a player" because they are both high level recruits and demand the ball just doesn't hold any water.

    Both players have said -- this school made it clear that I am their priority ----Suggs knows he is our priority ---- UCLA made Nix their priority --- if you are watching them play --both are the alphas who run the their teams. Hoping both go on to have great college and then pro careers. UCLA got a very good player and we will have a very good player leading our team also.
