Where do the Zags go from here?
The Gonzaga Bulldogs have had such an exciting season! What’s new for next season? Who other than Kispert, Ayayi and Suggs should declare themselves for the 2021 NBA Draft?
The 2020-21 Gonzaga Bulldogs season is over. Corey kispert and Aaron Cook are old people. We say that Jalen Suggs will be the first pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Junior Ayayi has already declared himself for the draft, and two other players are in the transfer portal, so there are a few holes to fill. One of the best rookies is signed and another may be on his way to Spokane.
Hunter Sallis – Engaged
Hunter Sallis is a five-star shooter from Omaha, in the Northeast. He is 6’5 ″ and has already signed up to the Bulldogs. A quick apprentice; Sallis already has a very good basketball IQ. Not as big as Suggs, who weighs 205 pounds, but he’s taller. Sallis also has long arms and is already a great shooter. He was recruited by many but signed up to Gonzaga very early on.
Chet Holmgren – Offer
There aren’t many, if any, other rookies like the 7’1 ″ six-star Chet Holmgren. Holmgren is from the same high school as Jalen Suggs, Minnehaha Academy. Watching him play is fascinating. The seven foot six star is incomparable rim protection. He’s a game-changer with his defense which is something the Zags lacked, a rim protector blocking hits! He is also a solid replacement should Drew timme decide not to come back.
Holmgren received 31 offers from schools across the country. Do not worry. He didn’t consider Baylor. The four competing teams are:
- Bulldogs Gonzaga
- Michigan Wolverines
- University of Minnesota
- Ohio state
