Corey Kispert, a big 2017 recruiting target for the Zags, will be visiting the campus April 26-28.

The Zags have been going after the 6'6 winger from Seattle, and the presence from Coach Mark Few recently shows he is one of the bigger priorities for the Zags 2017 class.
King's High School was the 1A Washington State Champions this season. Kispert is rated by 247Sports as the best small forward prospect in the state of Washington, and the fourth best on the west coast.
The Zags are competing with Notre Dame and Virginia for Kispert's services, although he has been offered by a total of eight schools. Kispert was recently visiting Notre Dame, and is in Virginia before finishing his tour in Spokane.
Either way, it will most likely be some time before we hear anything from the Kispert camp on a decision, according to Kispert himself.
"I’m a processor," he said. "I need time to think and time to reflect. I think one of the biggest enemies in this decision right now is impulse. If I head back to Seattle and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I have to go here’ after I just come back from a visit, I think that’s a bad sign. You need to let your emotions calm down and make an informed decision. I don’t expect it to be that quick at all."
One thing that should help out the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the race--as of now, Virginia only has one scholarship to offer in 2017.
