If all goes as planned, the Gonzaga Bulldogs will be landing one of the most highly touted recruits in the Mark Few era.

Josh Perkins, who is attending Huntington (W.Va.) Prep for his senior year, has narrowed his schools of choice to Gonzaga, UCLA and Minnesota. Perkins had previously been considering Kentucky and UConn. 

According to multiple sources close to SNY.tv, "all signs point to him landing at Gonzaga." Perkins, a 6-foot-2-inch point guard, is widely regarded as one of the best passers in the country. Senior David Stockton led the Zags last year with 3.4 assists per game. 

Rivals.com lists Perkins as the 28th best recruit in the class of 2014, while Scout.com lists him as the No. 25 overall player and the fifth best point guard, with his strengths being 3-point range, court vision and passing. "More than anything, Perkins is a sensational passer," Scout.com writes. "He makes the difficult ones look easy and can make the easy ones difficult, but his abilities in this regard are indisputable."

Perkins will announce his decision today in his home state of Colorado at 8:45 a.m. local time, 7:45 a.m. PT. The announcement can be viewed via a live stream contained on this page.
