    Gonzaga has picked up a commitment from 2019 elite international prospect Oumar Ballo, a source told Stockrisers and Prep Hoops.

    Spoke with him during his visit, he really enjoyed it. Originally planned to take all visits but felt at home in Spokane. Top-5 class for Mark Few.

    I honestly don't think there is comparable. Dude is unique.

    The 'Baby Shaq' nickname exists for a reason. Quite probably the highest ceiling of any GU recruit ever.

    Any redshirt possibilities? Pretty crowded front court if Tils or Clarke returns.

    Does it really matter though? Neither Ballo or Zakharov figure to be 5 year guys.

    Give whoever is least ready the Rui freshman treatment and go from there.

    Also, Clarke is so completely gone that we don't even need to entertain that idea anymore. He's gone.

    Very cool. I’m very intrigued by him. He is Lebron James-esque in regards to having a man-like physique at such a young age. Only 16 years old... he’s the Doogie Howser of basketball players. He’ll be the same age as a senior as some BYU freshmen.

    7’6” wing span... not sure if we’ve had anybody like that.

    In one of his highlight videos he seems to do a chin up every time he dunks. They might need to reinforce the rims.

    I’m excited to see this guy play. The Zags keep finding very unique players.

    The staff has done a remarkable job recruiting for 2019-20 season...

    Let's hope that S&S commit and make 20-21 another top class!

    Apparently told another coach that he didn't commit.
    Any reports from the staff?
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Not saying it isn't true, yet this is far from official.

    I'm not so certain we shouldn't delete this thread until verified.

    Solely based on a tweet from a source. Oumar was quoted as saying he would take all 3 visits prior to committing.

    Is this premature?

    We'll know more after the initial camps. Don't be so sure.

    Clarke is G-O-N-E. Full stop. Enjoy him while we have him because he isn't coming back.

    My sentiments exactly. As much as I wanna hoot and holler and welcome Oumar Ballo to ZagNation, I’ll await an official announcement.
