  • 2022 - Leonard Miller

    Any of you aware of the seriousness of GU's interest in Canadian 6'10 wing Leonard Miller?

    I keep seeing articles and Tweets mentioning the Zags are interested. If you are unaware of this kid, he is fairly under the radar, playing in Canada and now sort of bursting on the US recruiting scene. Now that Shaedon Sharpe reclassified and is at UK, I think Leonard Miller is the best Canadian prospect no matter the highschool class.


    Here are a few pieces on him:
    https://www.prospectiveinsight.com/post/zg-prep-classic
    "Offers and interest from Alabama, Wake Forest, Washington State, TCU, Kansas, Pittsburgh and Georgia as well as interest from Gonzaga."

    Vid from a Canadian scout.

    Canadian bball people tend to be overly optimistic so take that into consideration:


    I'm super intrigued by his size and skillset as a fan of Canadian bball, but am still trying to zone in on his pro prospects.

    I'm curious if the Zag fan base even knows about him, and if so, any opinions. I wonder where he'd generally be ranked if the U.S. rankers (24/7, ESPN, Rivals) were fully aware of him.


    Verbal Commits is showing offers from:
    Kansas, ASU, Providence, LSU, Wake, Pitts, OSU, Alabama, Georgia, TCU, WSU

    Very interesting, all depends on fit and timing.

    It would be nice to keep the Zags Canadian connection going.......there are currently no others after Andrew.

      I've only heard the burgeoning hype surrounding him but hadn't heard there was a GU connection.

      GU's 2022 class is small so I would love to land a guy with Miller's profile. Athletic guys who are 6'10 with guard skills don't grow on trees.

      Apparently he's draft eligible and possibly another Karim Mane situation where he forgoes the college route.

        No mention of GU in this interview from a couple days ago.

            I just came here to post this. This is big. This kid is a star in the making. Canadian Kevin Durant.

              Do we have a realistic chance? Seems like we are up against quality competition.

                  Auburn has had a good run with his peers the last couple years. ie recent top recruits out of the Toronto area. His brother is at TCU - which could be the winning card.
                  Overtime Elite and the Ignite are real completion too.

                  I think the kid really wants to be a wing. He plays a tonne with the ball in high school. Almost a combo PG/SG. I’ve seen some fan bases like UK talk about him as a 4, but if that is the case I doubt he’d choose that school. He wants to show case his perimeter skills for the NBA. Included in that is initiating the offense regularly.

                      Arkansas has over recruited. Some tough decisions for a program that made it to the elite eight and not alot of grads/draft prospects.

                              Hope we have a serious chance with this guy. He seems really skilled on both ends.
