I have no inside info, but I would bet he just signs with an agent and trains somewhere. Covid has pretty much ruined everything. Even the voluntary workouts seem cumbersome.

    Strawther and Harris have been flag carriers for the program. Suggs has come across like GU is almost an inconvenience. Being in a generation and cohort that loves to post everything on social media, Suggs’ silence toward GU has been telling. Again - I’m sure I’ll get jumped on here, and I really really hope I’m wrong (hell he may be in Spokane as I type this) but my bet is he never shows.

    There is absolutely nothing that says this will happen. Give it a rest.

    And there’s nothing that says it won’t....

    Again, I said I have no inside info. And said I don’t and wouldn’t blame him. Just making a GU basketball prediction on a GU message board.

    If Suggs doesn't arrive on campus in the same relative time period as other incoming recruits, what will be the reason or explanation for that?

    He didn't get here at the same time.
    It's not funny.

    It's amazing the ability people have to panic over and over about Suggs.

    That's what our incoming freshman and transfers usually do.. and the reason why these other guys are here so early. They can practice with the staff on a limited basis when they're enrolled in summer classes. The athletes usually get put in a program with other athletes and regular students that gets them up to speed and gets them credits before freshman year officially and traditionally starts in the fall.

    True, but has Gonzaga had a consensus one and done before? Just because others have done it one way doesn't mean they all have to.

    I guarantee that he will be on campus...or he won't. The sun will still rise and the Zags will still be a top 5 team.
    Could he decide to sit out the year not playing for a G league team instead of not playing for Gonzaga? Sure. The pay would be the same. But not playing for Gonzaga lets him get a start on a college education.

    Jalen said he feels Coach Few is the best coach in the country.

    I would imagine he would see the value in learning from him for one year instead of training on his own.

    I would also imagine that... but it's 2020 in the middle of a pandemic. The other 2 freshmen and the grad transfer managed to arrive in Spokane on this seemingly planned out date. So where is Suggs?

    Perhaps there's a washout on I-90 somewhere between Minny & Spokane.

    No skeptic here BUT this surly possible; however, I’d expect some type of announcement stating this in media. Hope you’re wrong on both occasions...
