“Everything about this kid says big time  P5 football college environment is what interests him.”

And ...

“All the other P5 schools are pushing him to cancel so they can get him on their campuses for big football weekend. Not good news.”

Herman can u plz make some attempt to define ur chicken little panicked speculation as just that?  U make ur posts as if u have a clue behind them, when u actually have none.  No where have u read or seen anything that would lend any credence to ur above statements.  In other words, cut the BS!

Just an opinion based on experience in these matters.

Delighted we got it to the point of penciling in an early official. Hope the staff can hang in there and get in him on campus.

I saw "Gonzaga Hoops" and was confused until I saw Washington DC.  Gonzaga is a Jesuit HS in DC.

Is there any evidence to show that Jesuit/Catholic schools do better at recruiting Jesuit/Catholic high school students?  I'm not talking about the athlete's faith, just the type of school they went to.

MU usually gets a number of kids from Fairfield Prep although lately I'm told the highest number of kids from Connecticut come from a public school, Fairfield Warde (for some reason).

Most likely Warde has a MU advocate in its college advisory dept.
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

Suggs.  He really likes Gonzaga.

There was no discussion about him playing football. Will be interesting to see how his football season goes and those discussions go as well. There are some pretty big football programs after him as well.

There have been several articles lately basically stating that Suggs’ interests are Gonzaga, Marquette, Minnesota, Iowa St. ...Michigan has tried to make a big push since Howard was hired to see if they can get in the mix too. Marquette is in a really good position. Only Gonzaga seems to be a team in as strong of a position at this point. .....things can and do always change.  Really like his game.

Suggs was spectacular this past weekend at the Under Armour tournament. He was one of the best players at any event this past weekend.

From what I have read it seems like Marquette is in a good position if Mark Few retires and Gonzaga is swallowed up by the earth........if you can call that a good position.

Suggs....

https://amp.desmoinesregister.com/amp/1732119001?__twitter_impression=true

What's the latest with Marquette?
"When they came in for the in-home visit, they really ran down the plan of what it’s going to look like for me. They really just kind of relayed it to (Marquette star) Markus Howard — you got players around you, but ultimately you're the guy to go to. And he told me, 'We’re missing that one, big, five-star to really put it all together.' And one thing that he said to me that really stuck with me, kind of hit home, was that I remind him of (former NBA superstar and Marquette product) Dwyane Wade and the type of impact I could have on that program. That hit home. I appreciate that so much — that’s an honor to get that kind of comparison."

No offense to you at all Mark, but if MU were to land Suggs or another 5*, watching you and Ted standing there with your mouths wide open in complete astonishment that little old Marquette was able to pull off the absolute mammoth, herculean feat of landing a 5* would be a priceless thing to see. Maybe...just MAYBE then it would change your perspective a bit. Well worth it to me.  :)


Everyone says MU doesn't have a chance at 5*'s because bluebloods come in last minute and get them. Well, with Suggs, there isn't a single blueblood in his final list of schools. Not a single one. Iowa, Iowa St, Minnesota, MU, Gonzaga...Not exactly a "murderer's row" that MU has to compete against there, right?? If ever there was a 5* that people would think MU would have a reasonable shot of landing, it should be Suggs given who they are recruiting against. Sure, maybe Gonzaga does lead, but if he was so certain, why hasn't he committed there yet?? This is one that MU COULD have a good shot at. If not now, against this group of schools, then when??

I think you missed Mark's point, which is that we were already discussing the article you posted and the comments on Gonzaga were striking:

"We still talk to the coaching staff every day. I still talk to (2020 recruits Dominick Harris and Julian Strawther) every day. I’ve gotten to know a lot of the overseas guys who are coming in in our class, since they were all at the U-19 World Cup, and I got to meet a lot of cool people. It’s still the same impression from when I first started talking to them and when I took my visit. You don’t like Gonzaga; you love it. From meeting all the alumni and talking to the coaching staff, it’s just nothing but positivity on my side."

He talks to their staff every day. He talks to their recruits every day. He knows their overseas targets. He doesn't like Gonzaga, he loves them. It's nothing but positivity.

Everyone would be overjoyed to land Suggs, but this article basically feels like a bunch of fluff wrapped around a love letter to Gonzaga. Hard to imagine him not going there, as much as we all may hope otherwise.

yep.........I try to look at things as they are...not as I'd like them to be. If Suggs was best friends with Torrence...talked to him every day.....had already visited here and was looking forward to coming back again I would feel differently.......that however is Gonzaga's position....not ours.

If we land Suggs I will not be standing here with my mouth wide open in astonishment........I will be happy as hell that Wojo and Stan pulled off the improbable........I don't expect that to happen....if it does I will be thrilled.
