Add the Gonzaga Bulldogs to a LONG list of schools in play for Drew Timme’s, a center/forward out of Texas, services.

Timme is a four-star 6’9, 210 pound, workjhorse out of Richardson, Texas. He is rated as the No. 93 player in the Class of 2019 via 247sports, and the No. 10 player in the state of Texas.

From all of the scouting reports, it sounds like Timme is a rather athletic player with a solid spring in his step. He was named one of the Pangos Camp All-Frosh/Soph top prospects back in 2016, with this description:

One of the new bigs who popped up on the radar in Dallas, this physical and mobile big man can pop and face from elbow, but is at his best utilizing his body and feet on the blocks to score going either way with variety of moves. He has good bounce to finish above the rim and he made defense pay when doubled up with his ability to find open man with the pass out of post or top of the key. His skill set will make him an immediate impact player once he reaches college levels.

Brian Michaelson is on his trail after Timme’s performance in the EYBL league. Timme has said he isn’t in much of a rush for recruitment, but it will be a heated competition for his services. As of now, he has offers from 12 different schools, including every school seemingly within Texas/Kansas/Oklahoma, alongside Creighton, Illinois, and Purdue.
