Gonzaga landed a third commitment in the Class of 2019 on Wednesday morning, as four-star center Drew Timme announced that he will be playing his college ball in Spokane.

The native of Richardson, Texas, made the announced at his high school this morning.

“I thank all the schools for recruiting me,” Timme said, “but I’m going to be a Zag.”

Timme is a 6-foot-10, 215-pound center that blew up during his junior season and last summer’s EYBL circuit. He’s skilled, he’s mobile and he’s an excellent passer, even if he doesn’t quite look the part. He’s No. 41 in the 247 Sports composite rankings, although some recruiting services rank him as a five-star recruit.

I tend to think that he is not a one-and-done kind of player, but that he will be an all-american for the Zags by the time that he is a junior. Kelly Olynyk with a beard.

Timme joins Anson Watson, Brock Ravet and Martynas Arlauskas in Gonzaga’s 2019 recruiting class.
