I’m just afraid that there are really unrealistic expectations for these guys.
    Spy-- i think with transfers it is always best to optimistically cautious.... as i predict Gilder if healthy will have an all american type season...

    One thing to note though, top CBB analysts/ writers (if you want to believe them), predicted Gilder as the #5 grad transfer (1 above Pierce btw) and Jenkins as the #2 "Sit out" transfer... so others think highly of them. Gilder would be much higher i imagine if he played last year and there werent concerns still about his health.

    Jenkins shot 45% from three ball with three games of 8 or more 3's hit. I dont care what conference you are in... if you are hitting 8 + 3's in 3 different games in a college season and shoot 45% on the year with 247 attempts, you are an absolute ELITE shooter.

    From an elite college basketball analyst regarding Gilder: "Solid player. He's good enough to help solidify backcourt."

    I think Harris and Strawther trying to get Suggs to come to Gonzaga is a bigger deal than Geno. Which isn't to say that Geno and Dower cannot help. I have no idea if either guy knows the Suggs family. Pargo was instrumental in landing Norvell.

    Haha, yes because if I don’t agree with your assessment I’m an idiot.

    What’s funny is that I said I want him on the team and that he’s a good player. AA is very hard to achieve and up to this point in his career, I don’t see it. Hope he proves me wrong.

    Also, SEC AA’s in the past 5 years...2 first teamers and 3 second teamers. All bigs except for 1 guard. 4 from Kentucky alone. They aren’t exactly spitting out AA’s and certainly not at the guard position.

    Really hope he comes so you can gush over him all year

    I know there are some that are not extremely high on Gilder, but it sounds like he is really high on the Zags and the Zags are high on him. He looks like the grad transfer we need to land.

    Wasn't just meaning you Spy, I know you will cheer for him. Just throwing it out there that we are in a good spot with Gilder and with him coming to campus I would not be shocked if he commits this week.

    Underrated aspect of a grad transfer: leadership. Especially from a point guard. Especially from a player with tournament experience.

    Would be a nice "win" over Texas Tech after our loss to them... and our loss to them on Matt Mooney last summer.

    Gilder is a terrific overall player who can add leadership, fantastic defense, and quality play from either guard spot. He seems more comfortable at the 2 and let’s face it.... the reality seems to be that we will need a boost at both the 1 and 2 spots so I personally have no concern that a Gilder commit has an negative impact with Nix. On the alternative, being a better team can only help in that recruitment. Quite honestly, I’m not sure why anyone wouldn’t be ecstatic adding Gilder. Our team has a few glaring holes possibly and he fills those. The reality is that grad transfers are usually added to play a solid role but Gilder is one of a few (at most) that has a chance to be a star.

    While I would be ecstatic to add Gilder, I can see why the scholarship chart would make some fans nervous.

    If we assume Norvell stays in the draft and Tillie + Filip return, adding Gilder would leave us with 1 opening for 2019. That means we could add only one of Nix, Jenkins, Boogie, or allowing Dom to reclassify.

    Not to mention that adding Nix/Jenkins/Boogie would fill up our scholarship chart for 2020. So beyond playing time, this seemingly adds a level of complexity to Jalen Suggs committing.

    I know posters say "the scholarships always work out themselves," but this really illuminates how important it is to not give a scholarship to a player that you'd rather have as an "OPEN" spot on the chart.

    Gilder would be a fantastic addition. I'm not sure about the All-American hype, but he's a quality starting point guard for a top 25 team from what I've seen. His veteran presence and experience would be a huge asset for next year's team.

    Excellent! I'm assuming you have some legit whispers on this. Keep us in the loop as you can.

    I worry about Jenkins, as if he were to choose GU, does that hurt our chances of Suggs/Nix/Burnett? If he is not immediately eligible then I think it will hurt, if we can get him this year then I don't think it will as Suggs and him can play side by side for a year, while Harris comes off the bench.

    What do we know, if anything, about Jenkins chances of being immediately eligible?

    The NCAA is all over the board on this right now, so it's really a crap shoot. He will argue his coach left and that changed his situation. The NCAA allowed some football players to be eligible immediately, it will be new territory with basketball.

    Thanks! Man, it sure would be helpful to know. I’m sure this weighs on the staff as it pertains to the larger recruiting strategy.

    Gildner is a monster defensively.

    Has Geno's fast hands and instincts but with more size, strength, and a legit D1 build.

    Given his prowess on defense I'm sure Coach Beard is ALL IN on Admon.

    Texas Tech is more of the same for Gilder. Have to assume he truly wants a fresh start somewhere and a guarantee to be the lead guard.

    Ixd expect Moretti takes over at Tech.

    Probably, though there is zero, zip, nada going on in Lubbock besides all things Texas Tech. There is nowhere near the rivalry between A&M and Tech, as opposed to UT Austin. Spokane is a long way from Texas, I think that would be the biggest sticking point that would lead Gildner to Lubbock.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    I assume so, yet he also listed Texas, SMU, TCU, Iowa State.

    Iowa St could be the dark horse. His game and style fits well with them as well.

    Just so we all know, although PCZ is "with" another WCC school, I consider him 100% a Zag!!
