GU recruit Collins on McDonald’s All-American roster

Ryan Edwards’ left-handed hook was one of the highlights for Gonzaga in its game against San Diego last Saturday.

No media day today or this week -- inquired as to why but didn't hear back -- so I put together a notebook with Zach Collins batting leadoff. The 6-foot-11 GU recruit has been selected to play in the McDonald's All-American game.

Only three other Zags -- Micah Downs, Kyle Wiltjer and Nigel Williams-Goss -- have played in the prestigious game and all three transferred from other schools to Gonzaga. Collins is taking the direct route.

There's also a note on Ryan Edwards' contribution and how GU's limited number of available players impacts practice.

Here's a link.

Also, GU's Kyle Wiltjer and Elle Tinkle are candidates for the Senior CLASS award.
