    Hunter is a much better contributor than just 1 month ago, like he knows he's that good and he's settled more now and playing like every time out there he's out to earn and prove he deserves it. Growing budding confidence. It's happening to the whole team seems to me and he's right in the middle of it with all of them

Consistency and a deep run will help but I think we see both back next year. Sallis the same thing, I think one more year of growth and we see a crazy jump.

      Agree - one more year for those two as well as Sallis AND Timme...who would be our starting PF...Watson?

          My guess, probably Watson, but Gregg would likely get starter minutes. There is also potential for an elite big through the transfer portal, especially if Timme leaves as expected.

            I definitely wonder if we would have gotten Kessler if Timme hadn't returned. There are going to be a lot of good transfers next year just like there were this year. But I also think Gregg and Perry can be very good.

              I'd say a stud post player is the top priority for transfer market. Gregg looks skilled but not very athletic or quick...great as first backup big off off the bench next season but not starter or starter's minutes imo. Perry's ongoing back issues mean, unfortunately, coaches cannot count on him being available / key rotation player...that's just the hard truth. Zags will definitely need an experienced, quality, plug and play post player for next season if both Timme and Holmgren are gone.

              Hopefully the littles are set for next season with: Hickman, Harris, Sallis, Strawther.....could see Zags playing some small ball lineups with all these guys on the floor together and a big boy big (or Timme!).

                Speaking of Sallis, I hope y'all caught his excellent interview on the Mark Few Show this week. What a nice kid. And I completely cracked up when he told Heister he doesn't know who Dan Dickau is! OMG I am really old.

                  Hopefully Anthony Black in there too. Would understand if he looked at that and said it’s too crowded, like Kessler did with our front court this year. But we would have a lot of small lineups if AB joins.

                    New article on top 25 recruiting classes for 2022 at espn.com. It's paid content though sorry. https://www.espn.com/mens-college-ba...as-rise-top-10

                    Punch line: GU is not mentioned which makes sense with just 1 commitment.

                    I would like to think that our days of overachieving with with mid-major recruiting classes are behind us. Staff has been amazing with getting top HS recruits in the past 5 years along with quality transfers and some under the radar types. It's really hard to make a Final 4 without lottery-pick level talent.

                      Agreed. My concern is in the front court. Huff is not high level. Maybe he can get there. Perry is a big question mark with injuries. Gregg - I’m just not sure.

                        Timme is not overly quick or athletic, and he does ok. I think you need to see Gregg get more floor time than 2 or 3 minutes during blow out time to tell what kind of a player he can become. I look for Timme to be back next year. He is an awesome college player, but not what the nba is looking for these days. He is a 6'10'' not really athletic, below the rim player, that is not a 3 point shooter. Those Golden State teams have ruined the chances of players like Timme having an impact on the nba game. He might as well come back, get another big deal with the casino, have fun and become a Gonzaga legend. Let me restate that, become an even bigger Gonzaga legend than he already is.

                          100% agree. Would be a nice time to pull a skilled Euro but I'm afraid those days are gone. Oh for another Sabonis...........

                          Gregg has a ways to go, and even if Perry was healthy, he's still raw.....

                          We are going to have a very intriguing vacancy or two to fill at the PF/C positions next season. A showcase opportunity possibly, or an opportunity to be showcased by guards that know how to.

                            My gut is that we will go hard after another elite big. Perry may be to injury prone for us to see his potential (hope I'm wrong). I think Gregg will be a nice role player in the future I just don't see star potential but I could be 100% wrong with him, small sample size but just a hunch.

                              Wonder what the odds of Timme returning are. 0.001% chance he goes to the NBA, so it’s go make some money in Europe or one more year at GU.

                              You would think we would be the top destination for any transfer bigs this offseason.

                                It is my opinion that for Timme to be a first round draft pick, his 3-pt shooting would have to improve, because as several have stated he does not posses the athleticism required for the NBA UNLESS he has the ability to drain 3-pointers. Luka Garza was drafted and he is getting minutes and seems to be able to play at that level and he is no where as talented a big compared to Timme; however, Garza can shoot the 3-ball.

                                I would bet that Timme comes back for one more year as he does have two years of eligibility remaining due to the COVID year in 2020.

                                If I'm wrong then we would need two bigs from the transfer list since Gregg and Perry will not be ready to carry the load with only Watson.
