Former Florida Gators point guard Andrew Nembhard, probably the top transfer in the market this offseason, will be making the decision on where he plays next on Monday, according to Corey Evans with Rivals.com.
Originally, the Zags were one of the top three schools, alongside USC and Duke. Recently, Memphis made a hard push into the arena as well.
Nembhard averaged 11.2 points, 5.6 assists and three rebounds per game last season. A graduate of Montverde Academy, Nembhard was ranked No. 23 overall in the Class of 2018, according to 247 Sports.
Gonzaga was originally in Nembhard’s top four back in the first recruiting phase before he ultimately chose Florida. Where he lands for the upcoming rest of his college career will depend on a variety of factors. Assuming he wants to attempt to file a waiver that the NCAA has seemingly granted willy-nilly as of late, Gonzaga does not fit the bill whatsoever. If the season happens, the Zags don’t have a minute of room for a player of Nembhard’s caliber.
However, if Nembhard is going to sit out the year, or possibly views the upcoming season as a wash because of COVID-19 concerns, the Zags are definitely one of the top contenders.
