Five-star prospect Hunter Sallis announced his commitment to Gonzaga’s 2021 recruiting class on Friday.

The 6-foot-5 combo guard from Millard North High School in Omaha, Neb., is ranked No. 6 in the country by the 247Sports composite and No. 13 by ESPN.

Sallis announced his decision on his 18th birthday, two days before the top-ranked and unbeaten Bulldogs’ Sweet 16 matchup with No. 5 seed Creighton on Sunday in Indianapolis.

“I feel like it was the right fit because I had already gotten down there on an official visit and I felt comfortable with the coaches,” he told 247Sports. “It was really about how they were on the visit. I was able to get there and really get to know them as people instead of just coaches.”

Sallis chose head coach Mark Few’s program in Spokane, Wash., over Kentucky and North Carolina.
