    In the video interview he seemed very interested in GU. Hope that's a good sign.

    I personally would rather have foreign recruits be bog guys like Sabonis, and Karnowski instesd of guards. I know Joel is an exception. There are always excellent guards here and in Canada, but to me there are more skilled big men in Europe. I would love to see some more big men like Tillie, Sabonis, and Karnowski in the future. Just my opinion.

    as an aside, how sleazy is it that prolific prep just hired mark phelps as head coach? he was one of the zona assistants fired in the wake of the fbi sting.

    If he pays those recruits and is supposedly no longer at arizona, then arizona can just start paying players earlier while they are still in high school. What a sleazy operation arizona is. This should tell you all you need to know about them, when they rallied aehind miller, when this paying players first came about. Why didn't they fire him when this first came about ?

    Funny you say that because Mark was once of the exact same opinion until Ayayi busted out. He was right though you need to find the right Euro PG and they are very difficult to find. Mark had been burned in the past with Euro PGs. Ayayi has really learned how to play and will be in the league next year.

    IMHO:
    Ayayi is in danger of becoming GU's greatest success story in terms of player development.
    Ayayi would be a second team AA if he was on another team. Seriously. He'd be pushing a triple double with a few forced turnovers. His defense is good right now, it could be great by the end of the year.

    Well he's looking for PT. Timme, and Chet will both be gone. He would be in a 3 man rotation with Gregg and Perry

    The thing is, in some of the twitter posts, it is mentioned he might reclassify to 2021

    He turns 18 next month, so it would make sense to be in the 2021 class.

    Yohan Traore (No. 98) took visits to Texas and TCU in June. Says he’s hearing from Tennessee, Ohio State, Michigan, Gonzaga and others. #3SSB

    Yohan Traore is putting on a show for @DreamVisionBall. Maybe the best performance I’ve seen here. Was apparently terrific yesterday too. Running the floor, has hit a couple corner 3s, hit a floater off the dribble, blocked a shot, competing with Kijani Wright on the glass. #3SSB

    Adidas 3SSB Birmingham: Four-star big man Yohan Traore is on the rise

    "Gonzaga: "What stands out the most about their program is the pro-style offense that they run. They will give me the opportunity to play inside while also allowing me to play outside as well."

    Jaden Bradley isn't on our 247 Sports targets list, and neither was Anthony Black even after we offered him. I wonder if 247 is slipping.

    This time of year, I expect they're heavily focused on football. Football is what brings in the big bucks for them.

    Looks to me like they have different recruiting experts for basketball & football. Guys like Eric Bossi and Brandon Jenkins only report on basketball, for example.

    It remains to be seen if this young man actually plays for Gonzaga. We have seen this before, but it could be nice. I haven't seen or heard anything about him, but if he is the best player in Indonesia, he should have some skills.
    I'm laughing. Why aren't you?
