The Gonzaga Bulldogs are hosting 2024 point guard Zoom Diallo (Tacoma, WA) on an unofficial visit this weekend. On Saturday, Diallo took to Twitter to reveal the team made him an official offer during the visit, while thanking coach Mark Few and the staff.
Diallo chose to head east for a visit to Spokane and Gonzaga before he received an offer, but now the Zags join an already excellent list of schools with offers out on the Curtis High School star, including Arizona, Florida State, LSU, San Diego State, UCLA, USC, and Washington.
The No. 1 ranked player in the state of Washington would be a huge get for Mark Few’s program, and his scouting report reads very similar to a report one might read about Gonzaga’s recent point guard, Andrew Nembhard.
“He’s a guy who’s going to run the show, not going to be sped up, going to play at his own pace,” Jason Jordan told me on a recent episode of the Locked on Zags podcast. “But he can score too. He can get to the basket, but he’s always looking to pass. They say pass first point guard, but he puts his teammates in the best position to score. He’s a guy who is going to put you in an optimal position to do what you do best.”
Diallo is a name for Gonzaga fans to keep a close eye on, and it is very possible he becomes the next Seattle-area hooper to join the Zags out of high school, a la Corey Kispert, Gary Bell, and Steven Gray.
Andy hosts the Locked on Zags and Locked on College Basketball podcasts, and serves Locked On in a marketing/digital content creator role as well. He lives just outside Portland with his wife Jenna and dog, Tillie.
