The accolades keep on coming in for 2019 Gonzaga recruit Brock Ravet. Ravet was recently named the Gatorade Player of the Year for Washington.
Considering Ravet almost averaged a triple-double during the regular season, this is a no-brainer. He averaged 31 points, nine assists, 8.8 rebounds, and 3.3 steals per game, all the while leading Kittitas High School to its second consecutive State 2B championship. Ravet is the first Kittitas High School player to ever win the award.
There has been quite a bit of talk in Gonzaga land wondering about the lower level competition for Ravet, but consider the following players who have won the Gatorade Player of the Year in Washington: Michael Porter Jr., Dejounte Murray, Gary Bell Jr., Peyton Siva, and Abdul Gaddy, among others.
It is looking more and more with each passing day that the Zags got a steal of a player in Ravet when he committed to GU almost a year ago. Ravet is now ranked as the No. 68 person in the nation according to 247 Sports, and considering the summer circuit is rolling up soon, there is plenty of time to garner more attention.
Ravet, alongside Anton Watson out of Gonzaga Prep, make up the top ranked 2019 recruiting class in the nation according to 247 Sports. That is just fun to say, because in reality, most 2019 recruits haven’t committed anywhere yet. But enjoy the top while we can!
