The Gonzaga Bulldogs are now set to have at least two – potentially three – players participating in Formula Zero, Damian Lillard’s highly exclusive basketball camp taking place in Portland August 3-7.
Class of 2023 commit Dusty Stromer is among the 20 high school basketball players invited to Lillard’s camp, while fellow 2023 prospect Kaden Cooper – a priority target for Mark Few and the Bulldogs – will be attending as well.
It’s appealing enough to think about Stromer improving his game under Lillard’s tutelage, while working to convince Cooper to join him in Spokane, but sources say current Gonzaga combo guard Hunter Sallis will be in attendance as well, as one of the 20 college players invited to Formula Zero.
As of this writing, The Formula’s Twitter account has not confirmed every high school or college attendee. However, Sallis is expected to be in attendance alongside some of college basketball’s best players, including North Carolina’s Caleb Love, Baylor’s Keyonte George, Iowa’s Kris Murray, Kansas’ Jalen Wilson, and Wyoming’s Graham Ike.
Sallis is already in line for a big jump production wise in his second season at Gonzaga, and getting to work with Lillard and some of college basketball’s best players will only help him blossom into a star for the Zags in his second season.
