Rumor: Ramello Carter verbal Commitment

The Zags have received a 2013 Verbal Commitment from Ramello Carter according to the twitter account of his friend @WorldFnPeace. At this point, this is obviously an unconfirmed rumor and we are trying to get confirmation on this. The tweet reads like this:
"Keiron TongolYeatts@WorldFnPeace So that boy @RamelloCarter10 done verbally comitted! #gonzaga"

Gerard Coleman announced via Facebook he is visiting Gonzaga today, for those of you who use Facebook his listed name is "Gerard Denzel Coleman". Sources are telling us this is an official visit and that Donny Daniels and Ray Giacoletti are leading his recruitment. At this point his list is looking like Gonzaga, Xavier, and Florida, however with him taking his first official visit to Spokane its likely we sit atop his list right now. We will keep you posted as we learn more about Gerards Recruitment. As Always, GO ZAGS!!

Robert Sacre Draft updates

More draft updates from Leslie Sacre:

In regards to workouts:
"Work outs consist of:

1:1 inside the paint, 1:1 outside the paint, 2:2, 3:3, shooting contests, shooting series, running baseline to baseline as many times as you can in three minutes - Robert completed 24 times, the record was 28. Defensive drills, offense shooting off screens, sometimes there are 30 players at the work out, some times 6 and sometimes just Robert.

Today, I checked in with him because he was leaving Florida, so I was being a mom and concerned with the hurricane. Our thoughts and prayers are with those people in the area of the hurricane because as a family Robert has already experienced Hurricane Andrew and Katerina... he tells me all is good and he will call me tonight...

Robert is enjoying the process and he understands this whole process is a once in life time opportunity and he is making the best of it... I know his schedule has a lot of traveling but Robert is embracing the whole experience with a smile.

Once again thanks for all the kind words of encouragement... we will keep you posted.."

Robert Sacre's Draft Experience, From a Mothers Perspective

A very, very special thanks to Leslie Sacre (Robert's mother) for granting us permission to run updates directly from her on Roberts experience with the NBA Draft process. The Consummate Zag Mom!

Leslie speaking on the process of getting set up for the draft:
"So far the process has worked like this:

Robert chose his agents - Keith and Greg

They have been in touch with the different NBA teams. The agents work with the NBA reps to set up work outs. Each NBA team that wants to have Robert work out pays for his expenses- travel, hotel, meals etc. Robert has said some teams have sent a member from their organization to pick him up from the airport and some have arranged for a driver to pick him up. Each work out has been different. He has told me that he has met GMs, Coaches, staff and players from different teams. (He hasn't given me any

IMG- Is a private training center in Florida- It was one that the agents recommended but Robert had the choice of several. The family is paying for the expenses at IMG. The package includes: Meals, an apartment, Individual work outs, group work can check out their information on- line. When Robert went down to New Orleans, we asked Dale Brown (The LSU Coach when I was at LSU) - where he would send a "Big guy" ...he said he sent "Big Baby" to IMG... so it made sense to IMG Robert is getting alot of one on one time... prior to going to IMG the trainer's watched film on Robert and developed an action plan...on what he needed to work on to improve...

Finally Robert told me last night he got another tattoo (Water the Bamboo!!! ) ... even on the road Robert can find a tattoo parlour..."

New ESPN 2013 Rankings

ESPN released their 2013 rankings today and there was a lot of movement. Three players being courted by the Zags made the list:

20. Xavier Rathan-Mayes
93. Kendal Harris
97. Zach LaVine

The Zag Whisperer

We are extremely excited to announce the fourth member of our team here at Zagaholic:

Matt Carson!

Matt is a Spokane native who will provide in depth analysis and intriguing commentary on topics ranging from the players to the coaches to the nuts and bolts of the games. He is an excellent writer who we believe will become a fan favorite. Look out for his first post coming soon!

Mathis Mönninghoff and Elias Harris Invited to Join German National Team

According to, both Elias Harris and Mathis Mönninghoff have been invited to join the German National Team this summer in preparation to qualify for the 2013 EuroBasket tournament in Slovenia. The training camp will be held June 19-21 near Berlin. After the training camp the German team will then compete in Qualification Round Group B against Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Luxembourg and Sweden. Their first game will be on August 18 at home vs Luxembourg.

While some might be frustrated with both Harris and Mönninghoff losing time with the Zags this summer, we should step back and realize this is a great opportunity to both players futures and allow them the freedom to represent their nation. We wish Elias and Mathis good health and good luck!

New Recruit in town this weekend?

Ah, the beauty of the "Twitter-verse", if you are not following guys like Guy Landry Edi, Sam Dower, Gary Bell Jr., or Kevin Pangos via twitter, you are missing out. Yesterday afternoon Gary Bell Jr. and Sam Dower had this interesting conversation via twitter:
"@GBell_5: @DoloDower you back in Spokane bro??
@DoloDower @GBell_5 Yeah Bro come mess wit us one weekend haha
@GBell_5: @DoloDower they want me to come back this weekend for the recruit but idk
‏@DoloDower @GBell_5 yeah try to come back if u can, but if you can't then its all good"
So apparently the staff is trying to get a few players back to Spokane for this weekend to entertain a new recruit. At this point we have not pinned down a specific recruit, but we will keep you posted as we learn more.

Adam Morrison's Revival Continues at Nets Camp

According to Adam Zagoria, of, Adam Morrison is currently in New Jersey trying out for the Brooklyn Nets. He is participating in a three day mini camp of sorts along with other former NBA players such as Al Thornton, Hilton Armstrong and Julian Wright. The hope is he can make the roster and perhaps revive a fledgling NBA career that many have left for dead. Sporting "Jesus" locks and a heavy metal goatee, Adam seems to have the support of Nets GM Billy King.

Adams agent stated that he has a number of teams interested at this point and he fully expects him to return to the NBA this year. Here's hoping Adam can come back and find a role in the NBA. As always, GO ZAGS!

Pacific to Play at Gonzaga this year

According to Bob Highfill of, Gonzaga will play host to future WCC rival Pacific next year. This news comes hours after the announcement that Bob Thomason, coach for 25 years at Pacific is set to retire following this season. Pacific will also play Santa Clara and San Francisco at home, and potentially Saint Mary's in an Anaheim tournament this season.

Bob Thomason brought his alma mater unprecedented success during his quarter century at the helm, leading them to 8 NCAA tournaments, the only Big West program since 1993 to advance to the second round of the NCAA tourney in consecutive seasons. Nine 20 win seasons, more Big West wins than any other coach (234), 414 wins at Pacific, 470 if you count his time as a player there. They also won 75% of the home games played at the Spanos center. But according to the Pacific press release he also has many wins off the court:
"His legacy is certain at Pacific, not only in the wins on the floor, but the wins off the court. Under Thomason's guidance, 96% of his student-athletes that have finished their eligibility at Pacific have earned their degrees. Pacific has a long history of its athletes achieving the highest GPAs in the Big West Conference -- with graduation rates and GPAs that often are much higher than the NCAA average. As Thomason has coached, recruited and driven the Pacific program for the last 24 years, he has posted four All-Americans (Michael Olowokandi, Miah Davis, David Doubley, Christian Maraker), a number one overall NBA draft pick (Olowokandi) and 59 All-Big West Conference awards."
We will never see Bob Thomason in the WCC, but what he did for the program returned them to their original home and cemented their place in the future of College Basketball. Bob, you will be remembered.

Recruit Profile: Jamal Reynolds

Looking over the list of players that our recruiting staff has reached out to, it appears that finding a combo guard has become a top priority.  Guys like Zach LaVine, Kendal Harris, and D.J. Fenner are all known and sought after commodities, in the 2013 class, and have all been offered by the staff.  North of the border, in Ontario, 6’5 Jamal Reynolds exhibits all the characteristics of the player we’re looking for, but has not been recruited by Gonzaga to this point. In fact, for a player who averaged 33 points (three 50+ point games), 7 assists, and 5 rebounds last season (in a league comparable to Washington 3A), Reynolds doesn’t seem to be garnering anywhere near the attention one would expect.  

May 20, 2012

The X-Factor: Kelly Olynyk

It wasn’t all too long ago that Zag fans were getting introduced to a longhaired, lanky, seven footer out of Kamloops, British Columbia. The relatively unknown big man averaged a ridiculous 35 points and 13 rebounds, during his senior year of High School, and had everyone asking “just who the heck is this kid?” Kelly Olynyk, now entering his junior year, has made his presence known across the country with his impressive play off the bench during his first two seasons. After an eye popping performance at the FIBA Americas tournament (including a 19 point 12 rebound game against Luis Scola and Argentina) many scouts began touting KO as a possible NBA draft pick. Following his terrific offseason playing international ball, Kelly returned to campus with high expectations. However, after choosing to redshirt the 2011-12 season, Olynyk once again seems to be flying under the radar.

The Canadian Pipeline

We are extremely excited to announce the newest addition to our team here at Zagaholic:

 Mark Reynolds!

Mark will be filling in as the Canadian Correspondent, keeping us informed on the recruiting picture from up north. He will also be providing updates on AAU tournaments and insightful commentary about some of our most beloved Zags. We hope you enjoy his interesting analysis and worthwhile content. His first post will arrive shortly! As always, GO ZAGS!

Recruit Profile: Tristan Etienne

There is a very talented post player developing north of the border. Not many know of Tristan Etienne yet, but he is in the class of 2014 and his recruitment is in its early stages. He is 6-10 forward, out of Abbotsford, BC(about an hour from Vancouver). He will probably grow another couple inches before college, setting himself up to be a true 7 footer. Recently, Tristan underwent open heart surgery, doctors discovered a hole in one of the chambers of his heart. He is now back on the court and playing full time again.

Robert Sacre Interview by HoopsHype

Big Rob says he is "hungry to be the best post player in the World." And that IMG not only helps him work on his game to help showcase his talents to NBA scouts but that they also help him prepare for questions and interviews. Good stuff!

Scheduling Update: West Virginia to Come to the Kennel This Upcoming Season?

Josh had recently posted that West Virginia and Gonzaga were trying to schedule a home and home starting this upcoming season, to begin at West Virginia.

However, according to the Charleston Gazette, they are working on coming to Spokane first.

We will keep you updated as this gets finalized.

Bob "Huggy Bear" Huggins bringing his West Virginia Mountaineers to the Kennel? I like the sound of that.

Although the Zags handled the Mountaineers in last year's NCAA Tournament, Huggins is a terrific coach and always finds a way to put together very good teams. He has been to the NCAA Tournament 14 of the past 15 years, and to two Final Fours. This will be a tremendous opportunity to show the East Coast just why opponents do not usually fare well in Spokane.

Looking forward to seeing them go at it in the Kennel.


Recruit Profile: Mouhammadou Jaiteh

According to, Mouhammadou Jaiteh of France will be taking a visit to see both Gonzaga and UW in the coming days. Here is the direct translated article from french:
"The young prospect is soon to go to the U.S. to visit universities. Resident of INSEP, Muhammadu Jaiteh of envy. It must be said that the potential of the pivotal 2m07 impressive wingspan is promising. With the federal center, he turned to a double-double average of N1 (14.3 points and 10.2 rebounds average. Reportedly, Jaiteh must go soon to the USA to visit the universities of Washington and Gonzaga (where is that Ronny Turiaf)."

Mini Interview with Robert Sacre by NBA Draft Blog

I just ran across this from last week on NBA Draft Blog. Check it out right here.

Big Rob is currently training for future NBA workouts at IMG in Florida. We wish him well and will be following his career closely. Go Zags!!~

Big Rob

He's Dynamic, enough said...

Zach LaVine has a favorite?

According to Zach LaVine of Bothell now has a favorite in his recruitment:
“[It was] good to see the coaches out there, I just hope they saw all the aspects of my game. I’m trying to get stronger, UCLA is my favorite right now, I think I’ll pick toward the end of AAU season and just comfortability level [will be the biggest factor],”
Priority #1 in the 2013 recruiting class appears to be leaning towards So Cal, with such little time left before the July Evaluation period, the GU Staff might have too much ground to make up in LaVine's recruitment to be able to close the gap and secure a commitment. We will keep you posted as we learn more about Zach's recruitment. 

Recruit Profile: Darin Johnson

So the recruiting news keeps rolling, we now have a 2013 recruit taking an unofficial visit to Spokane sometime around June 15-17. Darin Johnson is a 6-4 wing out of the Sacramento area. He is being recruited very heavily by Wazzu at this point, but perhaps the staff can parlay his initiative of visiting spokane into something more. According to Garrett Tucker of

May 15, 2012

Recruit Profile: Jadon Cohee

The last time Mark Few and Co. reached into Vancouver B.C., they unearthed a project. This guy was a true 7 footer and built like a football player. He was a project, no one would argue about that, but there was a fire within him. He would come to the program with a chip on his shoulder, a drive that helped him develop into one of the best centers in college basketball. If you haven't figured out that im referring to Robert Sacre by now, i would seriously need to question your fan hood.

Just so you know...

To the readers, We really appreciate the following that has developed over the last couple months. It is truly a joy to see this site start to come alive. This blog has been alive for over five years, there have been breaks, there have been revivals. Like you, we have spent years scouring the internet to compile information about past, present, and prospective players. Like you, we have been frustrated by a lack of activity on other similar sites. This site is intended as a place where you can get the information you crave, perhaps we can do some of the leg work for you so you can spend more time on other endeavors.

We have no grandiose vision of world dominance or Pulitzer prizes. We are fans, just like you, who wants to be as "in the know" as possible about the team we all love. This is not the Seattle Times, or the Spokesman Review, we do not have a team of assistants to do the work for us. This site does not provide for our families. At the end of the day the intention is for the fans to have another source for information, hopefully one that is updated with available information as often as possible. We will report rumors unlike other sites, because like you we get excited when we hear possible leads. Will these rumors always turn out to be true? No. If we decided to run a rumor it will be because we have heard the information from multiple sources. We will clearly label these posts as "Rumors" and provide disclaimers that we have yet to confirm the story. In the event the information proves to be false, we will notify you via the comments section to that effect.

We promise to be as accurate as possible, we will continue to get better about providing worthwhile content. We are still looking for other contributors to this site so that no one will get burnt out and we can provide more diverse information. If anyone is interested in participating in an official role on Zagaholic, we would most certainly be interested in hearing your story. Feel free to email Josh at or Gaz at As always, GO ZAGS!

Gonzaga's Ronny Turiaf Steps up For Miami Heat in Playoff Win

Former Gonzaga star Ronny Turiaf is making Zag Nation proud in the Miami Heat's push to win an NBA Title during playoffs vs. the Indiana Pacers.

Ronny has stepped up his game coming off the bench to help  fill the void left by an injury to Miami's Chris Bosh.

How cool is it that potential Zag recruits can be told that hey, if you come to Gonzaga you might get to be throwing down dunks set up by Lebron!

Rumored: Gerard Coleman on campus

At this hour we are hearing rumors that the mystery player who has been visiting campus this weekend with his family is none other than Gerard Coleman, a transfer from Providence College. According to, Gerard was the #58 prospect in the nation for the class of 2010.

Recruit Profile: Kendall Small

How often do you hear of a recruit who makes it known how much he loves a school? Usually its the coaches out there hustling, drooling all over these kids like they are a prime delmonico steak. Kendall Small is the exception to the rule. His father recently made it known that not only does Kendall have Gonzaga on his list, He is a full blown fan:
 "He's a Gonzaga fan," his father said. "He wants to go to Gonzaga. He just likes Mark Few's offense and the guards that come out of there are really good."

Conference Affiliation

We live in a tumultuous era for Collegiate Athletics. Conferences are in flux as teams jockey for position trying to find that last seat after the music stops. Football seems to be the deciding factor in all this, but what of Basketball only schools? What if The Power conferences secede from the NCAA and form their own league?

*Announcement: Free Zag Poster Contest Winners

One week has gone by, the contest is now officially over, and it is time to announce the winners of the Free Zag poster contest.

Josh has verified that the 5 winners are:

1. Zagazags
2. KG
3. Gonzagapride
4. Chefzag
5. Bigparb13

My favorite nickname for Przemek Karnowski was - The Prez.

You must email me your shipping address{}. I will pay for a poster tube and the shipping of your poster to the address provided. You MUST respond within 10 days from today or an alternate winner will be selected {in order of next winning guess}.

Recruit Profile: Michael Carrera

With the rumors floating around that the Zags have a recruit visit lined up for this weekend, many people have been tossing around names. Clyde Santee has been mentioned, also Sekou Wiggs, even Savon Goodman. One of the more intriguing names ive heard is Michael Carrera. Carrera is a 6-6 wing out of Montrose Christian in Maryland.

Guy Landry Edi Interview: Part II

Below is Part II of our Guy Landry Edi series - The interview: 

Gaz: Thank you for taking the time out from your busy schedule to answer some questions for

Edi: Hey, no problem, don’t even mention it.

Gaz: I wanted to start with asking why you chose Gonzaga when you had interest from schools such as Michigan State, Minnesota, and Tennessee? 

Edi: I just felt real comfortable during my visit. Everything clicked and I made up my mind pretty quickly. They had one of the best programs and coaches in the country and they were always playing in the NCAA Tournament. I had family ties and went to high school on the West Coast, so that helped. 

May 8, 2012

Adam Morrison back to the NBA?

According to, Former Gonzaga great Adam Morrison has been invited to attend a special 2 day free agent camp later this month. He will be competing with at least 20 other free agents for potential roster spots with the Brooklyn Nets. While beating out most of the these players will certainly go a long way towards Adam earning a roster spot, im sure the team will invite him to their Summer League camps prior to signing him to a deal.

Adam spent last year playing in Serbia and Turkey. He actually almost signed a 10 day contract with the Nets during the 2011 season, but suffered a serious ankle injury. Heres hoping we will see Mr. Stachio back in the NBA soon! As Always, GO ZAGS!

Guy Landry Edi Interview Part I: Is Guy the Answer at Wing?

By: Gaz

Gonzaga appears to have the makings of a very good team for next season. With the backcourt in the very capable hands of Kevin Pangos, Gary Bell Jr., and a frontcourt loaded with Elias Harris, Kelly Olynyk, Sam Dower, and the recently acquired Przemek Karnowski, the Zags look loaded.  

But, what of the wings?  This is the area of the team that is questionable. Hoff may be transferring and even if he stays he has been inconsistent. Hart provides defense, but no offense. Dranginis is unproven and may be a bit small to play the position. So far Gonzaga has had some near misses on wing acquisitions {see: Trent Lockett}. And, it’s getting late in the game to bring someone in with experience that could make a difference next season.

The Mothership Gonzaga makes it Official: Prezmek Karnowski a Zag!

This announcement makes me feel much better. We thought he was a Zag, but for the usually tight lipped mother ship to make a formal announcement like this certainly seals the deal.

WELCOME Prezmek Karnowski!!~

SWX- 7'1 Center Signs Letter of Intent

Schedule News

According to Zac Jackson of Fox Sports Ohio, West Virginia and Gonzaga have been involved in discussions on a home and home series to begin this season in Morgantown. He lists Bob Huggins as his source. With the potential to play West Virginia in the Old Spice Classic, the Zags may actually play the Mountaineers twice.

With the recent new the Zags will play Kansas State in the Battle in Seattle, its obvious the staff is trying to fill the schedule with solid, tough games to get this squad ready for the tournament. At this point the schedule looks something like this:

May 6, 2012

Recruit Profile: Savon Goodman

Alex Kline of the recruit scoop is reporting via twitter that the Zags have shown interest in Savon Goodman. Savon is a 6-6 Wing built very well and is currently ranked by as the 72nd best player in the Class of 2012. Read more after the Jump.

Recruit Profile: Clyde Santee

Quiet. A word that describes GU's interest in 2012 Wing, Clyde Santee of Houston, Texas. The Zags have been linked to wings all across the nation as analysts continue to speculate the staff will add a wing from this class. But who is Clyde Santee? Read more after the Jump.

Recruit Profile: Zylan Cheatham

According to Josh Gershon from, 2014 Wing, Zylan Cheatham has been receiving interest from the GU staff. Zylan hails from South Mountain High School in Phoenix, Arizona. From what we know, Zylan has only received one scholarship offer thus far, from Arizona State. He is a tall, lanky wing around 6-7 and needs to add more weight to his frame. Read more after the Jump.

The Arrival of Gaz

OK, I finally got brave enough to attempt a post on here. Please be patient with's my first time. Lots of new gadgets to tinker with but I'll be just fine after a couple of practice swings, lol.

For 2 1/2 years I had a blast posting down the street at It was fun making buddies with so many posters. I enjoyed the give and take, and just keeping up with all things Zag. But, Josh asked for my help over here, he was getting burnt out running this place all by himself, and he made me an offer I couldn't refuse. So, I am now moved in and looking forward to getting the ball rolling over here at our new home.

To start things off,  I want to thank Josh for bringing me on board. I look forward to helping this site to grow and be successful. It will be a place for fans of all levels. We want readers to feel comfortable posting their thoughts and we welcome all opinions. The only thing we ask is that you keep it respectful. Please come back again and again. We will be a good source for keeping you up to date on Zag recruiting, current news, transfers, misc. tidbits, and we will be throwing up fun giveaway contests from time to time.

Speaking of giveaways....Let's get right to it:

I have 5 really nice Gonzaga Men's 2011-2012 posters that I am going to give to the first 5 fans that can guess my favorite nickname for our prized recruit Przemek Karnowski. Since he is going to be a Zag we really need a nickname, right? The choices are right below:

1. The Poleslaw
2. The Prez
3. Karno the magnificent
4. Karnivore

In the comments section simply pick what you think is my fav nickname. I have emailed Josh the answer and he will verify the 5 winners. The contest will end in one weeks time from today's date. We will announce the winners  and you will need to provide a shipping address. I will send it to you in a poster tube, and pay for shipping. If you are local in the Spokane area, you could pick it up if you choose. At contest end, and after verification that you are a winner, email me your mailing address at:

These are great posters. I have one for each year, going back to the days of Ronny Turiaf on the walls of my back office. Throw it up in your office, give it to a special zag fan, or maybe put it up in your man cave?

Good luck!    and GO ZAGS!!~

Here's a pic of your new poster!!~ Nope, you don't get my Ty Cobb pic, lol.

Coach Cal, Slimy As Ever...'s Gary Parrish wrote an interesting article discussing the schedule negotiations between Mark Few and John Calipari back when they originally set up the GU/Memphis series. Definitely shows Cal's true colors, hes like a used car salesman...YUCK!

Click here for the article.

King Karnowski

For a team looking for as many as five scholarship players this offseason, the Zags have been relatively quiet. No big name recruits, no big name transfers, at least until yesterday afternoon. The Bulldogs did what many thought was inevitable, they grabbed one of the most talented big men in the class of 2012 in Przemek Karnowski. A supremely talented 7 Footer with the wide body to control the paint (280-320 depending on who you ask) he brings a certain fear factor to the post that we would have been lacking sans Sacre.

There are also implications to this that could affect future recruiting, in that when Karnowski told Duke, Kansas, Marquette, and California to take a hike, he told the blue bloods, the high majors, the guys who think they can hop in and muscle out anybody. Well, they cant. It shows other recruits who may like the Zags but fear lack of exposure or a big stage to hone their craft that they can get all that and more in sleepy Spokane.

What still would have been considered one of the best front courts on the west coast, looks like perhaps one of the top 2-3 in the whole country. I have no delusions of Karnowski coming in from day one and being "The Guy", this is Elias' team now, he is running the show and rightfully so. We will live and die by his otherwordly athleticism and improving offensive game, but without a "true" center this team would have lacked the "oompf" that we previously had with Sacre.

Zag nation, stand up! Our time is now to put together a young, blossoming back court led by the laser court vision of Kevin Pangos and a Beast like front court. We have the talent to make that final four push, will it happen? Time will tell, but this coaching staff has a vision for the future, and i have to admit its awesomely bright!

May 2, 2012


Przemek Karnowski officially commits to play for Gonzaga via Twitter in the last hour, here is his tweet:
"In the next season I will play in Zags uni! "
Huge congrats to the staff and specifically Tommy Lloyd who has been working hard on PK for the last couple years, More Analysis to follow!

Recruit Profile: Namon Wright

The Zags have offered 2014 recruit Namon Wright out of LA. He is a 6-4 wing who is very adept on the offensive end. His recruitment is being led by Donny Daniels and has really picked up steam over the last week. He has received offers from USC and New Mexico State as well. According to he has also received interest from New Mexico and UNLV. Read more after the Jump.

Recruit Profile: Malik Pope

The Zags have offered class of 2014 Forward Malik Pope out of Sacramento. Donny Daniels has been busy of late scouting and trying to find players that might not have cracked the top rankings but have the high D-1 talent the Zags need to continue their ascension to the pinnacle of College Basketball. Read more after the Jump.

Recruit Profile: D.J. Fenner

D.J. Fenner is a very intriguing wing prospect from the 2013 Class, and he was offered by GU today. He currently attends Seattle Prep, but recently spent some time in the DC area. His game is very refined on the offensive end and he has a chance to come in and start right away at the three obviously depending on who else the staff brings in at the position. has him listed at 6-5 but he is still growing and may be closer to 6-6 by the time he attends College. Read more after the Jump.
