Mark Few and the Gonzaga Bulldogs remain engaged with a handful of high level prospects in the upcoming 2023 and 2024 recruiting classes, despite having just one player – guard Dusty Stromer – committed at this time.
In fact, the staff has even started taking a look at prospects in the far, far away class of 2025, including Joliet West (IL) point guard Jeremiah Fears.
According to Max Feldman of Made Hoops, Gonzaga made the trek to see Fears along with Oregon and Michigan State, while Tommy Lloyd’s Arizona Wildcats followed suit shortly thereafter.
Fears has already received offers from many high levels programs, despite just now starting his sophomore year in high school. Programs with offers on the table right now include Michigan, Xavier, Illinois, Michigan State, Iowa, Missouri, and Ohio.
Fears’ older brother, Jeremy, is a commit to Tom Izzo’s program for the class of 2023, so no doubt the Spartans are hoping to secure the pair for the next half decade or so.
There is little info out there about Fears otherwise, as he has not picked up any rankings at this young stage in his career. Still, multiple Big Ten schools making offers is obviously a sign this kid can really play, and Few and the Zags are smart to get in early and see if they can convince this young man to come out to Spokane and be next in a long line of excellent guards at Gonzaga.
