As fans of Gonzaga continue to enjoy its historic undefeated start to the season, the coaching staff is always looking to build to the future. One of the primary targets continues to be David Singleton, the 63rd ranked player in the country according to Scout.
Singleton is one of the key pieces for Bishop Montgomery, one of the elite teams in California. After recovering from an injury, the talented guard has helped his team to a strong season.
“So far, so good,” the 63rd ranked player said of his junior year. “We got off to a rough start, since we lost our first game, but we haven’t lost a game since.”
Despite missing the start of his season as he was recovering from a fractured foot, the gym rat has continued to improve his versatile game.
“I’ve really learned how to pass the ball to a teammate when he can do the most with it,” he explained. “I have also learned how to improve as a leader and also working to attack the basket.”
Although he is already recognized as one of the elite guards on the West Coast, that hasn’t stopped the Gonzaga target from continue to add key details to his game.
“Right now I am working on my handles. I want to improve my crossover and moves when I attack the basket.”
While he is in the middle of his season, the recruiting hasn’t slowed down. Coach Few and Coach Daniels watched Singleton when Gonzaga played Arizona in LA, and other schools have stopped by as well.
“This year, Arizona, Stanford, Gonzaga, USC and Utah have seen me play. I’d say USC, Gonzaga, Penn, Arizona and Colorado are recruiting me the hardest.”
Of those schools recruiting him, the Zags, USC and Penn have offered scholarships. The Trojans, along with Arizona, are scheduled to receive unofficial visits during the season.
“Right now, I am planning to go to the University of Arizona for an unofficial and USC for an unofficial. Both of those visits will be for games.”
Even though he is focused on his junior season, the talented guard did admit that his timeline for his decision might be a bit sooner than originally planned.
“Right now I am thinking of making a decision maybe before the summer AAU season, or during it,” he revealed. “I might narrow down my list of schools soon. I’m still trying to figure out an official visit schedule and what schools I would visit.”
