While coaches weren't in attendance, one of the biggest events of the offseason took place at the University of Virginia last week, as the annual NBPA Top 100 camp took place. With many of the top players in the country in attendance, two familiar names put on a show against the best in country.
Zach Collins Shines:
This has been a huge summer for the Gonzaga commit and he only continued to gather momentum as one of the best bigs in the entire class. The Las Vegas native put on a show on both ends of the court and showed the versatility and skill set that will make him such a perfect fit in the class. We continue to hear that people around the program really think that Collins has a chance to be special during his time in Spokane:

Brendan Bailey Shines In Virginia...Then Visits Spokane:
The other recruit that the staff has really dialed in on is Brendan Bailey. The Utah native gives off a strong Austin Daye vibe with his skill set and build. He is the son of Thurl Bailey, who spend time in Utah when John Stockton played for the Jazz. As we first reported, Bailey took part in the Gonzaga Team Camp last week with his teammates. While Bailey was unable to stay for Hoopfest weekend, early reports indicate the visit went well and that he will likely return for an official visit.
