Sunday Morning Zag Tracks


In other news...

-- What in the name of Luke Babbitt is going on here?! Gonzaga recruiting has taken another odd turn with the recruitment of Devonte Elliott. The Zags appeared to be at the top of the California natives list but now it seems that something has gone awry for Gonzaga. Elliott was scheduled to be in Spokane last weekend but the trip was cancelled due to the SAT test. The odd thing is that Devonte has not rescheduled his trip to Gonzaga. Apparently he is visiting Nevada this weekend and also has a visit set for George Washington on October 24th. He will be visiting a school the weekend of October 17th but the destination has not yet been decided. It will either be Gonzaga or University of Texas-El Paso.

Something does not feel right about the way his recruitment has gone thus far. I would hate the thought of Gonzaga not even getting an official visit from him. Maybe this bodes well for the recruitment of Daequon Montreal. The staff was watching him scrimmage this weekend and seems to be very interested in the power forward from the College of Southern Idaho.

If Elliott does visit on October 17th, he will be here for Kraziness in the Kennel. You have to like the idea of him being here for Kraziness, it should be an electric atmosphere.

--The Clash of the Classes was held last night between the prep stars of Oregon and Washington. The inaugural event took place at Lewis & Clark College in Oregon. The Washington team came out victorious in a very tight game, defeating Oregon 119-116. Team Washington had to be the heavily favored team with players like Josh Smith, Abdul Gaddy, Tony Wroten Jr., and Peyton Siva but Oregon rallied late to make it a close game.

For Gonzaga fans, it was nice to see Kyle Wiltjer (right) playing well. The class of 2011 prospect had 13 points for Team Oregon in the loss. The 6'9'' small forward is being recruited by the Zags and location should play a major factor. He is definitely a high major prospect and already has an offer from Oregon State. The PAC-10 will be all over this kid.

--The men and women's soccer teams are in action later today in WCC play. The guys will be looking to rebound from a 3-0 loss against San Diego as they take on Loyola Marymount. The lady Zag's will be staying home and hosting third ranked Portland. The Pilots are a perennial powerhouse and this year is no different. The ladies will be kicking off at 1 P.M. today. Head out to Gonzaga Soccer Field today to see if Gonzaga can pull off the upset!
