Portland State lands PG Zach Gengler

The Portland State Vikings landed a verbal commitment from guard Zach Gengler (Silverton, Ore./Silverton) this week, according to The Oregonian.

The 6-foot-2 Gengler also held offers from San Diego and Pacific.

"Staying close enough to home but not far away was a key factor," he told the paper. "I'll be playing far enough away from home that I can create my own life but I'm close enough that I can have family and friends come watch me."
