Kyle Wiltjer to announce college decision on Saturday

This tweet just came across in the past hour:

Kyle Wiltjer will make his college announcement tomorrow night on ESPNU during the live telecast of the Boost Mobile Elite 24 game.

Gonzaga's most prized 2011 prospect is without a doubt Mr. Wiltjer but this tweet from Alex Kline (@TheRecruitScoop) comes as a huge surprise.  I'm not sure of young Mr. Kline's credentials but he writes for Rivals, ZagsBlog, and The Kentucky Sports Radio.  It has since been confirmed by a few other sources so it sounds legit that Kyle will commit tomorrow night.

Initial thought. Who the hell knows but this is huge news as Mark Few looks to continue his hot recruiting streak with the 2011 class.  Wiltjer, a five star power forward from Oregon, will decide from a who's who of schools including Gonzaga, Cal, Kansas, Kentucky, GA Tech, Wake, and Texas...and yes those are the order I think those schools will wind up! 

Regardless of classification, position, or anything else, Wiltjer has blown up more than any other recruit in the country this summer.  He's flashed unreal versatility and has dramatically improved his post play.  He'd be a remarkable get for the Zags.

Thoughts?
