Title: Garcia Announcement
Post by: bradforster on November 18, 2019, 08:10:50 PM
Dawson Garcia will make his college choice known on Wednesday at 3:30 central time from Prior Lake HS.  It will be streamed live on CBS Sports HQ and the BB coaches at the school have made their predictions.  My friend says he believes MU will land the talented forward this week.  The other assistants are leaning towards Minnesota.  Interestingly, there is not a coach on the staff predicting Garcia will choose Indiana.  I look forward to watching the big announcement on Wednesday!

I'll be shocked if it's Minnesota. But I've been shocked before.

Honestly, if it isn't Marquette I would be predicting Minny. He seems really jazzed about the idea of being the hometown hero

I hope he comes. He'll have an adoring fan base, a great tradition and a tremendous university education.

But as Al once said: "Son, we will win with you. We will win without you."

If he does not come, there always will be Plan "B."

The form of the announcement, streaming etc has changed so much during my "tenure" as a fan that it's hard to believe. I remember when Maurice Lucas signed, it was just a squib in the paper about someone that I'd never heard of before. Such is life.

Brother d,

You're one of the few who recall the glory days and hope for at least a semblance of their return. We won't get there with plan "Bs" unless the players we recruit are as good as the guys who were plan "A". Pretty sure the back up plan to Garcia won't result in a player of his level. No worries, though. We've got this one.

Thank you Brother Lenny.

I hope you are right -- we have this one. He'd be a true Warrior in the Bo Ellis, Maurice Lucas mode. A huge get for Wojo and will get a lot of us off Wojo's back.

But it is a sad state of affairs if our whole future is based on the recruitment of one athlete. We went down this road with Henry Ellenson and look where that got us.

I want us to win like we once did. I say, meaningfully, Make Marquette Feared Again! I mean that. I remember the days when people saw us and were afraid of us. We were tough, played hard defense and were vocal. The aura of the basketball team -- arrogant and obnoxious -- filtered into the entire university. Our swagger was the best in the nation.

We can be that again -- if we want to be.

There is a small all-boys high school in Chicago that serves at-risk youth.

They do a hat ceremony for every senior boy where he announces what college he will be attending. They believe that an academic scholarship should be just as big of a deal as an athletic scholarship (and most of them end up getting full, or close to full scholarships).  It's very cool.

Our future is NOT contingent on Garcia.    There are already two top 100 forwards signed for next year.    Wojo is the leader for Mane.    He is in on a number of recruits in future classes, 'fishing in the right pools.'        Garcia will be an excellent get and the idea of a Garcia, Osa, Lewis front line makes me salivate.     But the program is not in some sort of death spiral.

One of the best days of the year at another such school (Christ the King, a Cristo Rey Jesuit college prep school in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago) is college announcement day.  Everyone crosses the stage in a sweatshirt or t-shirt from their chosen school, to much joy and acclamation.

 “Hello, I’m Donovan and I’m going to set the world on fire at Morehouse College this fall!”

“My name is Jordan, and this fall I will be setting the world on fire at Howard University!”

“My name is Ravion, and I will be setting the world on fire at Boston College on a full scholarship!”

There always are a couple one or two who attend MU.

The difference here is the infrastructure and talent around him will be significantly greater than Ellenson's year with us.

But I have little doubt that if Garcia ends up picking MU, Henry being able to showcase his talent in Wojo's system and go one & done will have been a factor in our favor.

Mane also visited Maryland.
Many of the bluebloods haven't gotten too involved with him so far because there's a sense he'll skip college.

What is intriguing? A kid confirms he’s announcing in 2 days so they click a button on the consensus pick. 

Unless the click comes with some spit, it’s just a little game on the Internet.

Contingent? Obviously not. 

But we still have 4 openings for next year even with Oso and Lewis (I know you know this).  We need to fill spots with quality players.  Getting Garcia would be huge for the program.

I actually think its kind of out there, so wouldn't be surprised if Meyer knows.  I am surprised you haven't heard it if I have, as you're considerably more connected in the MN HS hoops community than I am. 

Again, expect good news tomorrow fellas.  No guarantees, but the info I got seemed pretty rock solid.

I have simultaneously convinced myself that Garcia is committing and that his decision will tip the scales to get Mane on board in January while also remembering a few short weeks ago when all the crystal ball picks went MU's way for RJ Davis only to all flip to UNC right before he announced.

Meyer has apparently said, “I don’t know, it’s just a guess”. I’ve heard a lot, by it all still leaves me at feeling around only 70%

Agree, this one looks like the Devil's Den guys, who are pulling for Wojo, putting a pick out there without any insider knowledge because they want it to happen, then Meyer seeing some late picks roll in and throwing hit hat in there. I won't believe he's coming to MU til he makes the announcement himself.

If he means, "I talked to Dawson's HS buddy and he said it's Marquette 100%" that's one thing. But if he means (and he might) that online he's seeing Marquette be the popular guess, that's completely different.

MUMark is correct. Steve grew up directly across the street from me. I have some good stories. One that did not occur was the home visit tailgating my brothers and I had planned. Steve announced before home visits were known. We were hoping to have Self and Billy Donovan join us!

Dean Marquardt who was down to the University of Kentucky and Marquette University was scheduled to announce on the local TV news channel. He announced that he was going to the University of Marquette.

Duane Wilson did the same thing. And he's from Milwaukee.

The difference here is the infrastructure and talent around him will be significantly greater than Ellenson's year with us.

But I have little doubt that if Garcia ends up picking MU, Henry being able to showcase his talent in Wojo's system and go one & done will have been a factor in our favor.



Is the consensus feeling out there that Dawson is a likely one-and-done? Seems to be a given for 5-star bigs these days...at least those who don't go to Madison....

I would be surprised if DG was a one and done. Crazier things have happened but I don't see him being that high of a talent

Jay Bee what do you think of DG?   I appreciated your analyses on Markus and Joey.  You put out anything on Late Night Hoops we should know about breaking this kids talent down?

Hit the gas pedal....just kidding :D

DG is a lefty, has similar size, post up moves and nice outside touch also in common.  Both were highly regarded recruits, top ten in their position.

I didn't mean to suggest DG would become CB.  I was only giving a comparison to overall look and style of play at the pre-professional level.

I think it's a good comp.

Let's hope DG makes the "right" choice.


My best

Proposal to rename the Milwaukee River to Dawson’s Creek if he he commits?

We've gone way off topic here... but I can't help to respond.  I've worked with a few of their students at my former employer and learned a lot about their program.  I think what they do is amazing!

Sorry for the late response but I’m very glad to hear that!

Also, look forward to formulating more positive memories/impressions of the name Garcia. Think Louisville. Now, we just need to get a Gaines.
