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.

Fine, but why did we just "gloss" over the MU part thought where Wojo told him he reminded him of Dwade and how that really hit home with him?? You can read into that that he was VERY intrigued by that and it really got to him. What if when he comes for his visit, DWade just happens to be there?? Then what??  ;) I mean, do we know for 100% certain he doesn't talk to MU coaches every single day?? Or that he and Markus or Theo, or Sacar don't talk every single day?? Just because he  doesn't say it, doesn't mean he doesn't. He has said specifically he wants to come and visit MU.

Nothing surprises me in recruiting muguru.  Nothing.

Thank You! Now if many others would take this attitude....I just can't seem to win. Sometimes, if I am ranting about MU losing a game they shouldn't etc I get told I'm too negative. Now, I want to believe that MU has a chance(a legitimate one) to land Suggs and I get people basically saying I need to be more realistic. So if I'm too negative=Bad. Too positive/optimistic=Bad.  :-\

It is obvious that Suggs is a very intelligent kid. He gives a lot of detail in his football and basketball interviews . Two things that are important to him are relationship with the coach and chemistry with teammates . His list of candidates reflects that.

I think for us to have a chance to close we need to be the best of the non Gonzaga candidates. We can beat Gonzaga one on one.

Like I said, it was courteous, stock comments wrapped around a love letter to Gonzaga.

Michigan: "we've had a couple good conversations..."

Gonzaga: "YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU LOVE IT."

Marquette: "I appreciate that so much..."

Iowa: "They've always been there."

Iowa State: "He's good people."

Minnesota: "We've been talking more."

Yes, I'm cherry picking, but he basically gushes about one program and says nice things about the others. All I'm saying is don't get your hopes up for Suggs. The tea leaves are pretty clear.

I thought the issue with him is that one of his friends is going to Gonzaga, and that it was assumed that they'd be playing together.  That may not come to pass, but I thought that was the thinking - not at MU - but in recruiting circles.  Maybe I'm thinking about someone else.  If so, the staff shouldn't write him off, but they better be focusing on other players, I hope.

Yes you are correct......Strawther has already verbaled to Gonzaga.

MU is doing what they should do......recruiting Suggs but also others in case they miss on him......which is obviously the more probable outcome.

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.

As I said, Gonzaga is in a good position. But Marquette is in a good position too. I’m sure Marquette is doing everything it can in the process. Hopefully, Marquette can land him And, if not, good luck to him and on to the next one. But being in the final couple of schools for a kid playing this well is considered a good position to me, yes. Good doesn’t mean lock, or committed to me. Good position means to me a realistic chance of landing a player. I would not be surprised if he chose Marquette or Gonzaga.  I am very aware that 2nd place doesn’t count for much. Coffee is for closers etc...the bottom line.....So yes of course, recruiting can and does change, and is fluid. We’ll see. I’m sure Marquette will be fine either way.

Stan is the West coast connection.   I noticed OI lists Chandler, AZ as his hometown.  Same as Markus Howard so I wonder if there's a connection there, too.

This kid has a huge upside.  Very skilled and athletic, just needs some muscle.

Another offer for Agbo:
"Thankful to have received an offer from Texas Tech!!"

https://twitter.com/Babybuzzo/status/1150936032889597955

After Texas Tech offered, Agbo picked up two more offers from USC and Arizona. Seems like this might have been less about desperation to fill scholarships and more about recognizing talent right before other high majors get involved

Good catch. Again, I'd love Suggs, but I'm not getting any hopes up.

Sounds like the Suggs ship may not have officially arrived at Gonzaga yet, but it has almost reached the port.  Or, since  it is Gonzaga, the plane is about to land in Spokane but has enough fuel if for some reason they wanted to head to Milwaukee.

Hopefully the FBI has scared these two programs or else we might not be able to compete for him anymore.
