Thread: Fanbo Zeng Commits to Zags!!!

  1. #1

    Default Fanbo Zeng Commits to Zags!!!

    that came from a little outta nowhere...there'd been rumors of zag involvement but normally i get notice via my fiba connections on the internationals, but not this time.
    i'm guessing being back in china and unable to return to windermere prep had something to do with it...moved up the expected timeline.

    does this say anything about chet holmgren???

    https://www.espn.com/college-sports/...s-play-gonzaga

    zeng is currently in the '22 class but is planning to reclassify into 2021...espn has him ranked #33 and 247x at #52 in 2022

    Welcome Fanbo!
    Saw this on ESPN as well and was surprised there were no threads when I first checked the board.
    Says he's reclassifying to 2021, but I still don't think it really means anything about Holmgren.

    Looks like another young one who might redshirt for time to develop.

    I have zero connections but I think I can definitively answer that question. No.

    I know mixtapes can be deceptive sometimes but dang, he looks smooth.

    Pretty impressive! Watching him go coast to coast on the fast break was pretty impressive! Some great vision and hops too. Pretty skinny but to be expected. Man these next few years are gonna be exciting!

    Maybe to put on weight, but his game looks extremely mature for a sophomore to me, though admittedly its hard for me to judge high school players. This was the first time I watched some tape on him and was really impressed.

    Reminds me of Tillie. Is that a good comp? Kind of funny that our 2021 class is (3) 6'8" - 6'10" guys.

    If Holmgren wants to commit it'll work itself out...also with the expectation being that Suggs will be a 1 & done that would open up a scholarship spot as well.

    Yeah, and I doubt Joel is staying another year. There will be scholarships available
    Probably the only Gonzaga fan in Ireland!

    That pass at 1:36 looks like one Magic Johnson might have made: a perfectly timed and placed skyhook from the three-point line to a baseline cutter for a layup.

    I’m impressed.

    Agree this signing doesn’t impact Holmgren recruitment imo because Fanbo reclassifying suggests his first year would be spot minutes and player development focus (if not RS) while, hopefully, Holmgren shines during his likely one and done season.

    Looking at the schollie chart though and assuming one or both of Suggs and Ayayi go pro, Zags need another guard for 2021-22.

    Exactly if Suggs & Ayayi go pro in an ideal world the Zags finish out this class with Holmgren & Hunter Sallis.

    Didn’t the NCAA implement a rule saying no winter sport athlete would lose a year of eligibility? If so, I would think Aaron Cook would be a good candidate to come back for another senior year in 2021/22.

    I understand the projections, but Suggs might want a year with Holgrem to get a second Natty, and one with his friend. For whatever reason Ayayi might want/need to come back.
    I DO know that neither of those is likely, but they are possibilities. I ALSO know that Few and the staff know what they are doing.
    It's not funny.

    Scholarships always work out.

    With that said, there is no way Suggs is going to forego the lottery projections to play with Holmgren if he came here.

    it's definitely a new zag world...few & staff have never previously gone overslot before, so bringing in another 2021 recruit without an existing open schollie would be breaking new ground
