Mark Few appears to have landed a player that would figure to be a big piece of Gonzaga's 2014 recruiting class.
Portland high school guard Silas Melson has verbally committed to play for the Zags. ESPN's Jeff Goodman first reported the news, and Melson confirmed it on Twitter.
According to OregonLive.com the 6-foot-2-inch Melson averaged 18.2 points as a junior. He also led Jefferson to the Oregon 5A State Championship.
Melson also had offers from Washington and Colorado State. The Huskies appeared to be Gonzaga's biggest competition in landing the combo guard.
