Kittitas guard Brock Ravet commits to Gonzaga basketball

June 24, 2017 Updated Sat., June 24, 2017 at 9:45 p.m.

Kittitas High’s Brock Ravet has had success in Spokane before and Gonzaga is counting on more of it in the future.

The rising junior verbally committed to Gonzaga on Friday, adding another in-state standout to the Zags’ 2019 recruiting class. Gonzaga Prep forward Anton Watson committed earlier in the week.

Kittitas, coached by Ravet’s father, Tim, attended Gonzaga’s team camp this week. The Zags offered a scholarship after watching Ravet play and he quickly accepted.

“It was crazy, I didn’t really think it was real,” Ravet said. “It didn’t take any time to say yes. That’s been my dream school forever.”

Ravet put on a show while leading Kittitas to the State 2B championship at the Spokane Arena in March. The 6-foot-1 guard scored 46 points in the Coyotes’ 72-69 win over Liberty in the title game, capping a 24-0 season. Ravet had 40 points in a 67-59 semifinal victory over St. George’s.

Ravet is an accomplished shooter, passer and ball-handler. Tim estimated his son has averaged approximately 31 points per game in two seasons.

Ravet is a two-time Eastern Washington Athletic Conference MVP and was named the 2017 2B player of the year by the Associated Press.

Ravet said he’s been a longtime follower of the Zags and he’s attended numerous games at the McCarthey Athletic Center. He went to the Final Four in Glendale and watched Gonzaga defeat South Carolina before falling to North Carolina in the championship game.

“It means a lot (receiving an offer from Gonzaga), knowing that I put in a lot of time and it’s starting to pay off,” Ravet said. “But it’s just the start. I have to keep working and getting better.”

It was fairly early in the recruiting process but Ravet also heard from Oregon State and Portland.
