Class of 2021 combo-gurad Hunter Sallis will be officially visiting Gonzaga this weekend, Jake Weingarten reported.
Just spoke with Top-40 junior Hunter Sallis, he told @Stockrisers that he will officially visit Gonzaga this weekend. Third Top-40 visitor for Mark Few in the last two weekends.— Jake (@jakeweingarten) January 23, 2020
Joins Nate Bittle on his visit, Paolo Banchero visited last weekend.
He will join five-star center Nathan Bittle this weekend, and as Jake noted, also comes one week after officially hosting Paolo Banchero.
Sallis is a 6’3 four-star guard and is rated as the top player out of Nebraska, the fourth-best combo-guard in the country, and the No. 42 player in the country (according to the 247 Sports Composite). He has gotten offer from schools all over the country, including Nebraska, Kansas, Creighton, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Missouri, and Oregon.
The fact that he is taking an official visit to Gonzaga is impressive, however. Recruits only get five official visits each. Sallis used up one of those on Nebraska, and has also taken unofficial visits to both Nebraska and Iowa.
Considering Gonzaga is quite a ways from Nebraska, it is safe to assume that as of right now, Nebraska has the upper hand. Gonzaga has the pedigree, however. So it will be interesting to track this recruiting race.
