Gonzaga will host one of their biggest priority recruits this weekend for Kraziness In The Kennel

Gonzaga is down to two key priority recruits for the 2016 cycle, and one of them will be making his official visit to Spokane this weekend. After visiting with his high school team this summer, the Zags will get a chance to host Brendan Bailey for an official visit.

Bailey is coming off of official visits to Marquette and Michigan. Both of the schools impressed the 4-star recruit.

"On both of the visits, I got to hang out with the players a lot and they were all great guys," Bailey recalled. "There wasn't one jerk on either team and it was great seeing what kind of players they have. I also really liked seeing each campus and seeing where I'd be going to class and where I'd be living."

This weekend will be the second trip to Gonzaga for the talented wing, and he is excited to get a better feel for the program.

"I'm excited to watch their practice," Bailey explained. "I think that Coach Few has a different style than the other coaches. I want to see how he utilizes the players like me in the system they run."

Current #zagclass16 commit Zach Collins will be on campus for Kraziness as well.

"It will be really good to see all the support behind the program. I've been talking to Coach Michaelson and he has mentioned how excited Zach is to get there and hang out for the weekend."

The Zags coaching staff has continued to develop a strong relationship with the former Arizona St. commit.

"It's been really good," he said of the relationship. "When they came in for the home visit, at the beginning it was strictly business. But after we got through the basketball and school talk, it was like we had been friends forever and we were just talking about life. It was cool to be talking about basketball one minute, and then something else right after."

Following his visit to Spokane, Bailey will take the final step in his recruitment.

"It's not going to be a really quick decision," the American Fork star said. "I will sit down with my family and take some time and just try to find the best fit for me."
