Mark Few and Gonzaga have continued their hot recruiting streak as they landed a commitment from senior Braden Huff of Glenbard West High School and the Illinois Wolves. Gonzaga had just recently offered Huff back in August. The commitment comes after the 6’10” power forward just took his official visit out to Spokane. 

Gonzaga was able to beat out a long list of suitors in landing Huff. He had also received offers from some prominent programs including Creighton, DePaul, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Penn, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, and Wisconsin. 

In his commitment announcement, Huff wrote “first of all, thank you so much to all of the programs, college coaches and staff that have invested time and energy into recruiting me and building relationships. This has been a dream come true and I value and respect each of you…With that being said I will be committing to Gonzaga University, Coach Few, his staff and my future teammates. Thank you for this opportunity, I can’t wait to get to work. Go Zags!”

Huff is a highly versatile forward with a nice all-around skill set as well to good mobility at his 6’10” height. Not only can he stretch the floor knocking down shots from the perimeter, but he can also handle the ball and is an extremely skilled passer.

While Huff has been a coveted recruit for some time now, his recruitment really took off this summer. Huff had an impressive June while playing with Glenbard West and continued that with a tremendous July with the Illinois Wolves. He was a big reason the Wolves won the UAA Championship. 

Before he heads west next year to Spokane, Huff will be a part of a highly talented Glenbard West team. Along with Huff in their senior class, they have Bobby Durkin and Ryan Renfro who are both committed to Army West Point, Caden Pierce who has several mid-major offers as well as Paxton Warden.
