Geno Crandall was one of the biggest coups of the transfer season, but Gonzaga fans may need to temporarily halt their excitement. According to the Spokesman Review and multiple others, Crandall has not enrolled in classes at Gonzaga just yet.
The report states that he still had some work to do at North Dakota to complete his degree, which isn’t out of the ordinary for a graduate transfer. Gonzaga’s SID stated that “Geno is continuing to work on his NCAA transfer requirements and we are excited for him to become a Zag.”
That much shouldn’t be reason for worry. However, Crandall was not listed on the Bulldogs’ roster online despite being listed on there previously. That raises a few eyebrows.
Crandall is expected to play a major role in the Gonzaga backcourt this year. He has the potential to play alongside both Josh Perkins and Zach Norvell Jr., and would provide some depth and lineup flexibility for Mark Few.
This could all turn out to be nothing in the end. Transfers almost always have loose ends to tie up at their prior school. But since Crandall is expected to be a major contributor on what should be a Top 5 team nationally, this will certainly be a situation to monitor.
