Looks like a class of 2010 Juco Guard.  From the list of programs that was looking at him, might be an intreguing prospect. 

http://basketballrecruiting.rivals.com/viewprospect.asp?Sport=2&pr_key=52311

Still, if this is true, not sure why Buzz would jump the gun on another Juco, particularly in 2010.  Unless he is on the cusp of a major 2009 or 2011 commit for a 2-guard...

2010 JUCO PG being recruited by Cinci and Kansas among other high majors.  Not sure if he had offers from any of them though.  Still no confirmation anywhere as far as I can tell.

Self checks-in on juco guard

Shay Wildeboor
JayhawkSlant.com

Wednesday was an extremely busy day Bill Self. He made the trip from Lawrence to Wichita to check-in on Perry Ellis, the elite prospect from Heights High School. Later that evening, Self was spotted at Hutchinson (KS) Community College. Apparently, he was there to get a closer look at Darius Johnson-Odom. Jayhawk Slant just spoke to Johnson-Odom and has the very latest inside.

I don't know if this is at all reliable but I looked up his bio on scout.com and he is a 3 star recruit, and then on Rivals.com he is said to be recruited by a number of big schools. I think Kentucky, and tennessee were on there with a number of others.

This season he averaged:

 21.6 points, 48% fg, 77% ft, 39% 3pters, 5.3 reb, 4.6 asst, 1.5 stl, .5 blk, 4.1 to

Not a great asst/to ratio, but everything else looks good

I agree with this statement.  I absolutely infuriated me when Tan Tommy did this since you never got a good return on your investment(maybe he brought in crappy Jucos).  I understand Buzz doing this at the beginning but I rather have 3 or 4 year players.

One positive with the juco's only being here for two years is that it will help us balance classes better, especially with a rather large freshman class coming in this year.

Let's see how the JUCO players pan out.  I am all for winning.  If Buzz can get the talent he needs in JUCO's and wins, I am happy.

more from that rivals.com article:

Johnson-Odom has been an outstanding performer this season, which is one of the main reasons the Blue Dragon's have won 15-of-19 games this season.

Johnson-Odom is averaging 22.5-points and 6.6 rebounds per game. He's dished out a team-high 93 assists this season and has 31 steals.

On the court, there isn't much the talented shooting guard can't do.


"Pittsburgh has been by to see me this season," he said. "Tennessee has also been by to watch me play. Kentucky, Providence, Western Kentucky, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Virginia Tech are all interested in me. I have a real good relationship with Coach Seth Greenberg from Virginia Tech"

I have been searching for a source for a while now and still have not found anything. I googled him and nothing came up. I am starting to wonder if this is true.

I think that you going by the assumption that Jucos actually contribute something to the program.
Personally, I think really don't contribute a whole lot.  For every Morley and Butler you have guys like marcus jackson and all the other JUCO guys that tommy brought in. I rather bank the scholarship or use it on someone that can contribute.  

Plus there is nothing on the other board and there is no source.

Crean had Kinsella, Lott and Blackledge on roster.   I'm not one who considers JUCO a dirty word.

agreed. a lot of people have said that it's tough for schools to have a great class following a great class (like following the 3 amigos), so wouldn't using some hopefully good JUCO players be a good fill-in?

Why does the use of JUCO's = UNLV-Midwest?  I have noted before that 1987 Indiana Hoosiers minus JUCO's Keith Smart and Dean Garrett = NNC's [Not Nat'l Champs]  With those two = One Shining Moment!

It's all about winning? Seriously?
