Pretty intriguing that both Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater picked Garcia to MU last night.  I would expect other recruiting analysts to make their picks today in advance of tomorrow's decision.

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.

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.   

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 would take the Rick SLU program right now.

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.

Fair enough.  FWIW - on twitter this morning Meyer said "I am hearing Marquette". But he may have said its just a guess elsewhere.

Has MU ever won one of these kind of announcements? May well have, but I do not recall a recruit calling a press conference and/or picking hats and then picking Marquette. Seems most recruits MU get announce with less fanfare. Anyone else commit to MU this way?

Haanif had a press conference. The mayor of the town or some other official spoke at IIRC

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yes, a pretty slick one.  The reveal was the MU shirt underneath his warmups.

Damn internet holes.

Now a GA with Cuonzo. Going after Masters.

Cuonzo is a no nonsense high character type, who grew up in a very tough environment. He's a good role model for Maymon.

Thanks for all the examples folks - hopefully this one goes MU's way too.

Yes, but with those press conferences, weren't they already pretty well known they were going to pick MU?? That's what I recall. I know there was Illinois and Florida with Novak, but I don't think anyone really believed he was going to pick either one. This one feels different, IF the rumors are true that as of this morning, the staffs didn't even know yet...then i don't know what to think.

Not true on Novak. He was leaning toward Illinois (Bill Self) until he switched to MU near the end. Only the best sources on this!

Who ISN'T hearing Marquette?

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.
