    Sounds like everything we can bring to the table. That being said, it does sound like he wants to commit before school next season, so I’m not sure how much of a chance we have

    As with all recruits in which GU has an interest, they MUST come for a visit!

    We have four bigs already that more than likely will still be here after his senior year...don’t think he’ll have an interest in a visit out west...he mentioned UVA, UF, FSU...but then I know less than 5% of what actually goes on in GU Basketball...

    His daddy played at Georgia, so I figure that is where he will end up. He would be a good pick up, but our front court is already loaded, is it not ?

    I wonder how many new guys will pop up from Powell being on board! This is a great start!

    This 2020 team could end up being gigantic. They may need to play a 6'10 guy at the 3 just to keep everyone happy. It hints at a new era of GU basketball and is making me start to think that I should get used to the idea of guys sticking around for only two years.

    It is for exactly that reason that I think that this smoke has some fire associated with it. It seems so odd that they are offering more bigs at this time that there must be something there. Maybe he really wants to play here or follow Powell here. Maybe Petrusev is gone after this year. My head is still spinning from the Norvell announcement... 3rd ranked center coming to an already loaded front court??... I feel like I stepped into bizarro world tonight

    Great offer, I heard rumblings of this one last week before we officially came on board. No slam dunk here but he fits and he is tight with Powell.

    Well I guess we will have a 6'10 giant playing PG for us next year, gotta be a first for everything right! Nah, good problem to have, we really need guards though!

    Gonzaga University completed in-home visit with Woodward Academy’s 2020 7’0 PF/C Walker Kessler.

    Noticed nobody had this up yet, so thought I'd throw this up even if it's over a week old.

    Good spot. I must have PM'd people about this only, but yes the Zags did have an in-home visit with him and it went really well. We have a lot of ground to make up, but we have Powell in our court, which is a big deal to Kessler.

    Good stuff. Thanks for posting. Duke fans I think that he is a lock for them.

    I found it, glad I am not going crazy, it was posted in the 2020 recruiting thread as well. All good Kessler is a stud and he is a very smart kid, so his recruitment will be interesting to follow.

    "[Walker] Kessler is a Georgia legacy kid, which in theory would make him most likely Athens bound. But perhaps Walker decides to build his own legacy elsewhere, Auburn would be a heckuva landing spot with guys like Austin Wiley and Anfernee McLemore graduating after next year. Kessler was here for the Kentucky game and Bruce Pearl had an in-home visit with him on April 29th. Some big news from last Friday was that Kessler announced he will be taking his last official visit as a junior to Auburn this weekend. While Georgia is probably the favorite, keep an eye on Gonzaga and California who have entered the picture here recently. Cal is where former Georgia coach Mark Fox has landed so we’ll see if that gets Kessler out to Berkeley."

    Said this in another thread, just don't see him trekking to the west coast to play bball and especially go to GU when we have three bigs coming in this year...but then again, we had one bench player drafted in the 1st round so whose to say he wouldn't want to be the second!

    Never say never... This recruitment is getting a lot more attention that anyone not named Suggs right now.

    247 Sports Composite reports Walker's choice at 44% Georgia, 44% Duke, and GU not in the top five.

    Ignore all of the experts re Kessler right now. Most don’t even realize that we are after Kessler. Just know this: Those odds would be the same if Powell was still at Vandy and I can confidently tell you that Kessler would have committed to Vandy. Let’s just let this play out and see if we can overcome the distance and academic factor. I personally have zero concern for what the public believes with Kessler at this point.

    I might watch some more tape on him, just saying.

    Understand we’re an underdog here but it seems like there’s some cautious optimism.
