One of those three, and apparently only the 5th Japanese player to play D1 basketball, has qualified academically, and will arrive in Spokane any day now:

That is very good news, and really the best decision IMO.

Karno will continue get professional training and medical care in Spokane as he recovers from his back surgery, and with some luck and a reasonably good year on the court he should recover enough to play professionally......and barring that, he should at least lead a "normal 7-1 life" upon his recovery.

Not unexpected, but guard Jordan Mathews will transfer to GU for his final year of eligibility after graduating from Cal.....

Interesting how GU has become the landing spot for a number of outstanding transfers in recent years.

WRV mentioned this on the 2017 recruiting thread. Zach Collins is a one-and-done. http://www.sbnation.com/gonzaga-zach-collins-2017-nba-draft-projection-lottery-pick

Sorry to see him go because he's good for GU and good for the WCC, but I understand.....

I’m proud to say all three of my goals were met. In the classroom, I earned my degree in Psychology and have begun work on my Masters. On the court, my teammates and I made school history winning 37 games, advanced to the Final Four, and played in the National Championship game. Coming to Gonzaga is the best decision I ever made.

What I was most surprised by this season was not the wins, awards, or recognition, but rather the genuine love I felt with our fans in Spokane. Since arriving, everywhere I went, I have been surrounded by love from the Gonzaga community. I cannot describe the incredible relationships I have formed in my time here and would not trade my experience for anything in the world. I could not be more grateful or humbled to call myself a Zag for life!

After many discussions with my coaches and family, I have decided to enter the 2017 NBA Draft with representation. I am 100% confident in this decision and believe I am prepared both mentally and physically to take this step in my career and my life. As always, I give all glory to God for granting me this opportunity. I will continue to represent the entire Gonzaga community to the best of my ability. To all my teammates, coaches, fans, supporters, and believers…I love you and thank you! Forever and always... #GoZags

The draft is going to be interesting this year. I heard one report that Collins may have to play D-league for a year. Wonder who else might be outside looking in?

Mrs. DD and I were discussing the same thing.  There are going to be a lot of college dropouts entering the job market in the next couple of months, and some are going to be disappointed....

One such player that has many South Carolinians scratching their heads is PJ Dozier. But, D-League salaries are on the rise so you can actually make a living off of it so I have heard.

When your choice is NCAA-style uncompensated labor or make money playing basketball then the decision seems a bit more clear for some of these kids.

On the other hand, Grayson Allen is returning to Duke. Must be he wants that coveted Duke diploma. And all the love he gets at road games. Rolling Eyes

Well, that was a bogus speculation. Collins goes #10 in the NBA draft, and the Trailblazers traded up to get him.

Real estate: location, location, location. NBA: potential, potential, potential.
