    A breakout year for Suggs this season would go a long way toward firming up Few's reputation when it comes to being able to develop NBA guards.

    • Few had Suggs for like 10 months 😂 Pretty sure talent like that was a sure fire lottery pick.

      • Question: Could the Marcus Adams Jr. departure signal we are close to a Zoom commit? Enquiring minds want to know.

          I dont think Marcus leaving had anything to do with Zoom. Different positions.

          • The more interesting question to me is Vyctorious Miller. Listed as a shooting guard but says he wants to play PG. I hadn’t heard a mention of before the August article came out. He is class of 2024 along with Zoom.

            The rumor was in the transfer window that the staff did not want any roadblocks for signing Diallo. Meaning a grad transfer with only 1 year of eligibility. They then proceeded to sign Nembhard (pure point guard) with 2 years of eligibility, Luka (prefers the 2 but can and has played the point) 4 years of eligibility , we already have Hickman (a 2 that can play point) 2 years of eligibility, we have Dusty (who is more of a 2/3), and now they are courting a guard that plays 1-3 with 4 years of eligibility. Add Jun and the comments on Miller were before Adams transferred.

            Could just be covering bases but it looks awful crowded in the backcourt to land Diallo. Who knows but I thought Miller had more relevance than Adams.

            • ZOOM DIALLO, PG, NAPA (CALIF.) PROLIFIC PREP
              Currently ranked: No. 14

              Who is in the mix: Alabama, Arizona, Gonzaga, USC and Washington

              Latest intel: After winning a pair of state titles in his home state of Washington, the nation’s top ranked point guard Zoom Diallo heads off to California for his senior season. Alabama is a relative newcomer to the party and Diallo has been on campus — either officially or unofficially — at each of his other suitors.

              For much of his recruitment, Gonzaga has been thought to be either at or near the top of his list. They’ve prioritized him and added assistant RJay Barsh, who has a strong relationship with Diallo and had gotten him to visit Florida State while he was on staff there. The Zags remain in a strong position. After a June visit to USC the Trojans have picked up steam and after seemingly not being all that involved early on, Washington has improved their standing. We will see what happens with ‘Bama and sources have indicated to 247Sports that a visit date for a trip to Tuscaloosa will be finalized in the very near future. We will see what happens if and when he makes that visit -- the Tide's playing style is appealing to Diallo -- but for now we would expect Diallo to remain out West for college.

                      Shouldn’t be. Hopefully Zoom understands he is Zags’ #1 PG recruit but this is also a business and no program can go all in on one guy without covering their bases and having a backup plan should he decide to go elsewhere.

                      • I don’t really see Perry as a backup plan. If he commits before Zoom I think they’d take it. Zoom has had so much time to commit and be the guy but hasn’t, so now I think they’d go with whoever commits first.

                        • Cast a wide net. Find those with the traits you look for and bring into the fold, in haste, those who are eager and indeed thrilled to be a Zag. Not every such player will be a 5-star recruit. And that’s perfectly ok. ** Go Zags!
