Gonzaga freshman center Zach Collins has declared for the NBA Draft and intends to hire an agent at a later date. Collins becomes the Zags’ first one-and-done player. “This was a significant decision for my family and me,” Collins said in a GU release. “It was definitely one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make. I just want to thank everyone at Gonzaga, especially the coaching staff and my teammates. “This season was special and something I will never forget. It was the most fun year of my life. I want to thank all of the Zag fans for all of their support and passion. I’ll always be proud to be a Zag.” Collins didn’t return a phone message. His father, Mike, said he’s vetted four agents and the family hopes to finalize a decision in the next two weeks. Signing with an agent eliminates the possibility of returning to school.
