Gonzaga gets basketball commitment from Sam Dower

Sam Dower, a 6'9, 210 lb center out of Osseo Senior High School in Osseo, MN., will attend Gonzaga University this Fall to play basketball. He is very mobile and a quick jumper around the rim. Although he is still a work in progress on offense, Dower has a couple of go to moves that he executes very well. Dower likes to shoot the jump hook over his right shoulder on both sides of the lane, but on the left block he will look to face up from time to time. He does a great job of sealing and resealing his defender to improve his post position. Dower is also a good passer out of the post against the double team. He gets the ball out of his hands once he feels the pressure which makes it difficult for the defense to recover due too such quick ball movement. Dower can hit the mid range jumper with time to set his puppies (feet). This young man has great upside!
