5-star combo guard, top-ranked hoops prospect from Nebraska makes commitment decision
Hunter Sallis has made his decision. The 5-star combo guard out of Omaha, Nebraska is heading to Gonzaga.
Friday morning, Sallis made his announcement, committing to the Zags over offers from multiple programs. The 6-foot-5 guard received over two dozen offers on the recruiting front and received interesting from Nebraska, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin out of the B1G.
Other programs to show interest in Sallis include Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, Oregon, UCLA, Alabama, Louisville and Oklahoma State.

Per 247Sports, Sallis ranks as the No. 6 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class and the No. 2 combo guard. He’s the top-ranked player from Nebraska and is also a McDonald’s All-American.
Gonzaga’s success this season has likely played a major factor in Sallis’ decision. The Bulldogs are currently 28-0 and reached the Sweet 16 with relative ease following wins over Norfolk State and Oklahoma in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.
Mark Few’s team is trying to become the first undefeated team to win a national title since Indiana’s run in 1975-76 (32-0).
