Five-star combo guard Jalen Suggs has scheduled his official visit to Gonzaga on Feb. 9-10, according to 247Sports.com. It is Suggs’ first official visit.

The 6’4 guard is one of the top prospects in the country, ranked as the No. 2 combo guard and the No. 11 overall prospect in the class of 2020, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

Suggs is also considering Kansas, Marquette, Florida, Minnesota, Georgetown, West Virginia and Georgia.

He averaged 8.7 points, 2.7 assists and 2.4 rebounds en route to helping the U.S. win the FIBA U17 World Cup last summer. This season, Suggs is averaging 24.3 points for Minnehaha Academy, ranked No. 1 in the 2A classification in Minnesota.

The Zags are pulling out the stops for the recruits that weekend. The coaching staff will also be hosting combo-guard Julian Strawther, who is ranked No. 33 by 247Sports. The Saint Mary’s Gaels will be in town, which is about the best atmosphere a prospective player can ask for when rolling into Spokane.
