Gonzaga Reportedly In Pursuit Of Elite Transfer Byron Wesley

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

The Zags are reportedly in pursuit of this offseason's most prized transfer...

As we said when Domas Sabonis signed on the dotted line with Gonzaga, the newcomers next season may be the best that Mark Few has ever brought in.  At that same time, we also said that there is a good chance the staff may not be done yet.  This morning, more news surfaced that verifies that statement as Gonzaga has shown interest in an extremely talented transfer.

Wesley is a graduate transfer from Southern Cal and will have immediate eligibility next season.

Last week, we learned that the Bulldogs were also pursuing another 2014 guard in Malek Harris so it doesn't come as a total stunner that they would talk to Wesley, as well.  At USC a year ago, Wesley averaged nearly 18 points per game and pulled down 6 boards per contest.  He was a three-year starter for USC but it comes as little surprise that he is leaving the program as they are in full rebuild mode under second year head coach Andy Enfield.

Gonzaga's is currently maxed out in terms of scholarships with the addition of Sabonis.  Stating the obvious, someone would have to go off scholarship or transfer for any additions to happen.  There were rumors weeks ago that Gerard Coleman might be leaving but that seems to have blown over so it probably isn't worth speculating about at this time until we find out more about the depth of Gonzaga's interest in Wesley.
