    Actually with his East Coast vibe and linguistics bumped up way over the top to an ultimate theatrical level, which I'm sure is well within Jazz's wheelhouse.. I think it would be one heck of a performance... I'm in...

    Welcome Braden!!! Coach and staff found a hidden gem..

    Just my opinion...

    Go!! Zags!!!

    - glad to see a recruit who coming in wants and expects to learn over the course a few years.
    - love to see another 4 year player on the level of anton watson.

    - welcome on board braden!

    Agree, we need to find a balance of the 5* one and done and players who will stay 4 years, and most importantly, know that is their plan coming in.

    Only if he wears Maria's dress and has her range!
    I'm laughing. Why aren't you?

    Fanbo went one of the pro routes after Lloyd left.

    Dress? Like Julie in Victor/Victoria, gender not an issue.

    Good signing, but let’s not get carried away. Timme was ranked much higher. We have to assume the rankings are all nonsense (and there’s some validity to that given the schools recruiting him), because the alternative will leave many disappointed.

    Too many of the experts get hung up on athleticism. Adam Morrison didn't crack the top 200, but it was obvious he was McDonalds AA caliber when he put up 37 in the state title game to keep an outmanned Mead within striking distance v Franklin's 4 D1 players led by McD AA/future NBAer Aaron Brooks.

    Adam was a ferocious competitor and could hit shots from any point on the floor from any angle. I hope this kid has some of that.

    We need a banget, a tough guy to balance out the Finesse. A Sabonis l, Brandon Clarke etc...we may have latter, time will tell.

    Huff is not a banger. More finesse.

    After Domantas, there ain’t no more Sabonis.

    I take that as an accurate statement.

    Sadly, inevitably, irrevocably yes.

    Hoping Perry will be more the banger/interior presence. Nice to have an inside out combo with bigs, Gonzaga often hangs their hat on that big man high low.

    He is under ranked. His ranking will change by the end of the year. Guaranteed.
    Probably the only Gonzaga fan in Ireland!

    I think the trend has been that once a recruit signs with GU their ranking seems to drop a few places...never understood this but there seems to be some kind of prejudice involved.

    That was like 10 years ago right? I’d expect that to flip here. When a top program signs a fringe top 100 guy in current rankings he’ll get more attention.

    That said, couldn’t care less about rankings.

    Unless your name is Chet Holmgren or Jalen Suggs.
