"I've really been working on my jump shot since the summer," he said. "But just not that. I've been working hard on my ball handling and defense, too. I think I've improved in all of those."
"They weren't like just form letters, they were hand-written letters," Gurganious said. "I've probably heard the most from Kansas and UNLV."
Just going into his junior season, Gurganious doesn't have a scholarship offer, and he said he's in no hurry.
"I know some players like to commit early and maybe I will," he said. "It will probably depend on what kind of interest I'm getting and from who."
When asked if he'd like to take early trips (juniors can take official visits as early as this January), Gurganious said, "I might take some pretty early trips. If I have a chance, I'd like to see some schools and get it out of the way."
The springy athlete said staying close to home doesn't matter than much to him, and that his parents would be fine with him leaving the Bay Area.
Gurganious took the PSAT this week for the first time, and said he has a 2.9 GPA.
