Gonzaga lands four-star big

THE RIVALS150: 2015 | 2016
For a while now, the general consensus had been that four-star junior big man Zach Collins could be leaning in the direction of Gonzaga. Monday, Collins ended any and all speculation when he made things official.
Zach Collins is headed to Gonzaga.
A 6-foot-11 power forward at Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman, Collins made his verbal commitment to Mark Few and the Zags. The news was relayed to by Collins' father Mike, who confirmed via text message that his son had decided to go ahead and end his recruitment. Currently ranked No. 56 in the class of 2016, Collins is a big score with major upside. Collins is very fluid, can shoot with range, is much stronger than you might think and has a polished game on the offensive end. Though he's not a traditional rim protector, he has the length and athleticism to bother opponents around the rim and he's a very good positional rebounder. What might be most intriguing about Collins is that nobody really knows just how good he can be at this point. He's in a very unique situation at Bishop Gorman where he has played alongside a pair of five-star bigs from the class of 2015 in Stephen Zimmerman and Chase Jeter. Gonzaga's first commitment from the class of 2016, Collins is one that feels could see his stock rise quickly now that he'll be playing a more featured role for the rest of his high school career.
