Nembhard, a 6’4 guard from Thornhill, Ontario, plays basketball at Montverde Academy in Florida. 247 Sports ranks him as the No. 7 point guard in the country, and the No. 31 player overall in the class of 2018.
Nembhard will be joining Jamal Bey for an official visit at Kraziness in the Kennel, a prime time for the coaching staff to show their highest-interest recruits in what the atmosphere is like in Spokane during basketball season.
The Zags have some solid competition for his services. Nembhard is also choosing between Florida, Ohio State, and USC. Ohio State is a rather interesting entry in the field, considering the state of the program right now.
The big player to watch in the recruiting battle will be USC. The Trojans have a fantastic recruiting class in 2018, currently ranked No. 2, and Gonzaga has gone toe-to-toe on several recruits (and lost the battle). Both Taeshon Cherry and Kevin Porter chose USC over Gonzaga.
Gonzaga will be well stocked to start the 2018 season at point guard, with the senior year of Josh Perkins and the sophomore years of Jesse Wade and Joel Ayayi lined up. However, as last year showed, there is no such thing as too many ball handlers on the court at one time
