2014 Recruiting Big Board: Three New Prospects Emerge

Gonzaga offered Brekkott Chapman this past week

The staff has targeted several high major prospects over the past week...

There has been plenty of movement over the past few days in the 2014 class. Since we last updated you, Gonzaga has shown serious interest in or has offered three new prospects. As we hoped, the staff is targeting several positions and is looking at some supremely talented kids. Lets take a look at some of the high level news:

New Faces (More In The Table Below):

Iziahiah Sweeney - 6'2'' Wing Prospect From Compton, CA

Brekkott Chapman - 6'8'' Forward From Roy, Utah

Andre Adams - 6'8'' Forward From Avondale, AZ

Point Guards

Collier and Perkins are still the main two options here. With Graham Woodward not in the works for 2013, it will be interesting to see if this list grows or if the staff elects to wait until 2015 to nab a point guard.

Colorado, Kansas State, Stanford, Iowa 10/11: The staff went out to see Collier this fall but interest is still pretty new at this point. 25%. Collier is a great option at point, just depends if the staff views it as a need in '14.

Colorado, Arizona, ASU, SDSU, Stanford, USC, Wake Forest 10/11: Like Collier, this interest is pretty new so we will see if anything materializes. 25%. See above.


Combo Guards

The Bryan Alberts category. Alberts visited in mid-October and seemed to have a great time; such a great time in fact that it seemed like he might commit. Based on what we can tell, a commit hasn't happened yet but things are looking great.

Wings

The next couple categories have gotten very busy and what is exciting is that each guy seems to be more talented than the next. As we pointed out above, the newest member to this group is Iziahiah Sweeney from Compton. In a recent Scout piece, Sweeney said the Zags were standing out so we will definitely keep an eye on him.

Versatile 4/3 Forwards

Brekkott Chapman is the new name here. The exciting prospect from Utah has garnered plenty of attention recently. The Zags have absolutely targeted this position as one of need in 2014 and it will be interesting to see how many prospects they seriously pursue.

Minnesota, Iowa St., WSU, Colorado, BC, Northwestern, etc. 10/11: Gonzaga has been out to Minneapolis to see Reid this fall. He is also a promising QB on the gridiron. 10%. Very tough to get him out of Midwest, also looking for school where he can play football & hoops.

UCLA, UNLV, USC, UW, Baylor, Arizona, Colorado..pretty much anywhere. 10/11: Zags were in on Pope early but he has since risen to a 5-star and is likely BCS bound. 10%. Don't see this one happening.


Athletic Bigs

We are all familiar with Okonoboh but Andre Adams is a guy that popped up this month and is very intriguing. Make no mistake, he will about as tough to get as Okonoboh will be as he touts numerous high major offers.
