Josh Davis Spurns Gonzaga, Transfers To San Diego State

USA TODAY Sports

After losing their top two post players from a season ago, the Zags are in desperate need of frontcourt help...

Call in a whiff, call it a swing-and-a-miss, call it whatever you want, but talented transfer forward Josh Davis is off the board and he won't be playing his senior season of basketball in Spokane, Washington.

Davis, the double-double machine who became the hottest transfer in the country, committed today to Steve Fisher and San Diego State. Davis' commitment is a major get for Fisher as the Aztecs lost their top two performers from a season ago and were in dire need of immediate help. In the end, Davis' first visit was all he needed as he elected to end his recruitment early.

Davis was scheduled to visit Gonzaga next on his tour which has had me thinking "what if Gonzaga would have been the first visit" all day long. In all honesty, Davis committing to San Diego State is hardly a surprise. The Aztecs offer a very solid program in a solid conference and Davis can come in and be the star right away. Also...playing your senior season in San Diego isn't bad at all.

On the heels of Moser's decision to transfer to Oregon, this is really hard news to swallow. From everything we had heard, the staff felt they were in a good spot to land Davis as Few had met with him a little while ago in New Orleans. In the end, San Diego State got the first visit and you had to think they were going to do whatever it took to not let him leave without a decision. The Bulldogs will now scour the transfer lists and the remaining 2013 prospects in hopes of just finding some depth to help Sam Dower and Przemek Karnowski.

At the end of the day, Davis' commitment to San Diego State means that the pressure is now on the Gonzaga guards to carry the load. Whereas last year's team was frontcourt-centric, next season's team will revolve around the perimeter and guys like Gary Bell, Kyle Dranginis, and Gerard Coleman will have to step up in a big way.
