I can think of Chier Maker and Adam Quick in Pilots history, but no others...
It does seem like all the Aussies go to SMC, but 6-9/230 Chris Jackson, who hales from Wollongong, NSW, Australia played four years for the Pilots and graduated in 2007.

Chris posts on PN from time-to-time, maybe he can tell us of other Australian players who have played on the men's team...we've had a number of Aussies playing for the women's team, including two this coming season.



That's Chris catching the ball from Darren Cooper while at lunch before passing it to Kevin Field at the same table. If memory serves me correctly, Chris then tosses the ball to Walter Thompson who throws it to Sherrard Watson, who passes it to Rev...2006-2007 was Rev's first year.

BTW, I spoke to Ethan Niedermeyer, Rev's first recruit, a couple of weeks ago, he's now a lawyer with the district attorney's office in San Francisco.

I couldn't come up with that name, and that was even during my time at UP! Heck of a memory there, DoubleDipper.

Another Aussie!  Daniel Foster is a 6-6/170 combo guard originally from Perth and now living in Melbourne, Australia.



Foster, like his teammates Triplett and Adebayo, also has an offer from the University of Missouri - Kansas City (UMKC) Kangaroos, and also Hartford, UC Riverside, and Eastern Washington.

With yesterday's commitment by Zac Triplett from Melbourne, and assuming no one defects from the team before next fall, that leaves just one open scholarship for the Class of 2020...could the Pilots sign two Aussies?

Leyi Adebayo, also from Melbourne, and a youth club teammate of Triplett, reportedly made an official visit to The Bluff last week and it would appear he's narrowing his choices to UP, UC Riverside, and USD.

A 6-8 small forward with a good shooting touch, Adebayo would likely be the only listed SF on the roster next season after Isaiah White finishes grad-school.

2020 Recruiting - Page 2 Screen15

This is the same Elijah Gonzalez who was the 2017 Oregon Basketball Player of the Year and who subsequently signed early with PSU, but opted out when there was a coaching change there, and then had a brief workout with UP, but signed with St. Peter's in New Jersey.

PilotNation even devoted an entire thread to him: http://www.pilotnation.net/t5866-elijah-gonzalez-clackamas-hs

Gonzales played in all 29 games and started 20 games as a pass-first PG with St. Peter's during the 17-18 season, averaging 6.2 ppg while shooting 42%.

Gonzales spent the 18-19 season redshirting at Western Oregon, but when Coach Shaw left for WSU, Gonzales apparently enrolled at Clarendon College in the Texas Panhandle, but he is not currently listed on their roster.

It's my recollection that Gonzales still holds the all-time scoring record for the OSAA 6-A boys tournament (not single game) with something like 92 points.  I remember him scoring 40 points in the Chiles Center to take Clackamas HS to the semi-final or final in 2017...and most impressive was he hit 20 of 22 free-throw attempts.

As a senior at Clackamas, Gonzales averaged 25.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 steals.

Apparently UP once considered him a bit undersized for the WCC, but after seeing Chase Adams play, I think the coaches are realizing a big heart is just as valuable as a big body...

Huh? I recall Alec Wintering making a living off of driving the lane as an undersized point guard.

So when would Gonzalez be eligible to join the Pilots' roster? Is this an offer for next season, or might he be able to join the team for the second semester this year? Sounds like he already redshirted last year, so he should be eligible immediately, right?

The early signing period begins in less than three weeks and more offers and commitments are being made each day.

With Aussie Zac Triplett apparently committed and set to sign with UP in November, and with only one scholarship remaining (barring someone leaving the team), UP still has a few open offers out there, the newest of which is to 6-4/190 wing Dante Combs at Lincoln Trail Community College in Illinois.

Dante, originally from Indiana, will have two years of eligibility remaining after competing this season at Lincoln Trail.

Not sure if UP is still recruiting point guards, but two that UP previously offered scholarships to have committed elsewhere.

Paris Dawson, who once said it was "important to play for a coach who had been a point guard," has committed to Portland State...not sure what position Coach Peery played at Snow College and Southern Utah in the '90s.

Daniel Foster has committed at Nevada, and as a freshman, will be a rarity at the school that has stocked their roster with transfers and JUCO players...but perhaps new coach Steve Alford will go the more traditional route of a mix of players.

With the offer to LaTrell Jones, it's pretty obvious UP is looking for wings for the 2020 class as Isaiah White, Malcolm Porter and Lavar Harewood will graduate...although Porter will still have one year of eligibility remaining after graduation.

Jones is a 6-5 wing from Louisiana, but goes to school at College of Central Florida...a community college.
