Shaka Kon if we land him.

Shaka got Konned if we don't land him.

Before Marquette even offered, a friend reached out and talked to me about the family, that they were hoping all five brothers would be D1 players, and how they were hoping for offers from Marquette and Wisconsin to stay local. Knowing next to nothing about the kid, I said "man he needs to come here because the Shaka Kon headline writes itself."

With all the other interest as his recruitment blew up, I feared we wouldn't be able to get that great headline, but knowing we have "Shaka Konned" as a fallback makes me happy. Thank you for restoring my faith in quality headline potential. :D

Lol yeah it's almost too easy.  Just writes itself.

His family will be able to see him play wherever. And UVA and Duke are great programs. He is definitely coming from a position of strength.

So is Marquette a great program. Does he want an education or a one year ride to the NBA? We need student athletes.

Lol.

Yes.  If you want a good education you should unquestionably choose Marquette over Duke or Virginia...

His goal is to get to the NBA.  He may not be able to do it after one year.

Regardless if he is here one...two...three...or four years, he will be a "student athlete." And we would be lucky to have him.

Because there seems to be a lot of misinformation or poorly sourced information out there regarding this one. Mainly, I saw someone elsewhere saying that Marquette isn't a factor and I feel confident that is not accurate.

Some guy on Buckyville claims Kon is picking Dook tonight. Take that unsourced Internet rumor for what it is worth.

Feels that way. Dang.

MU will be fine, but man, a shooter like him in this system would be lethal.

And looking at Duke's account post - seems like they think there will be an announcement soon.

Seem's too ironic though. "just a response to Duke's account"? really?

Yes, a Duke account was commenting on Trilly's post about unusual programs in the recruiting ranking top-5. His reply was directly to that Duke account post.

Dom opening up a lot of speculation here; I may have to block him if this goes poorly.
