Refer to grad transfers, 247Sports. Unless the site is bs, which I don’t think it is, they list MU as 100%. I don’t think Wojo will take a total stiff knowing he’s on thin ice. And, maybe Turner has indicated ‘no thanks’. This still leaves room for Carton and Mane, or a ‘big’. Personally, give me a bunch of 3/4’s and let’s run like hell.

Well...that's a crystal ball prediction, but it's from Brian Snow yesterday. This could be nothing more than speculation based on MU might be the best school on his list. Think if this was going to happen, it would have come out by now.

Ahh, so nothing then. Every now and then some random poster pops on and knows something. Glad that's not the case.

MUGURU I hope you’re correct. I’d say there are better 2/3-type players out there.

Well I don't think that this is true, but IF it is...you have 3 scholarships available..what if you can get Turner, Carton and Mane, but instead you took Antonio?? Then what??

There’s not a chance in hell that these 3 (Turner, Carton & Mane) “free agent” Guards all come to an MU program that already has 4 Guards on the roster.  I don’t think it’s realistic to think that both Mane & Carton would both pick MU...but it would be nice!

I don't disagree but until one has committed someplace else, there's always a chance. By the way, all three of those guards would be demonstrably better than any of the current Guards are.

michigan state is working on Mane hard. But unless Stan Johnson's departure is a deal breaker for him, Marquette was his first official visit and the MU staff has been in for visits. Advantage Marquette. However, Mane is probably 1dun anyway. Hence, is Turner the better option? Also 1 yr. rental, but comes with D-1 experience and knows Cain and Elliott.  Either way, Marquette is a better team next season.
Carton? There’s 30 mins. of PT every night.  Marquette recruited him hard when in HS. Wojo made an in-house visit. Again, advantage Marquette.
Flip side...get none of the above? Is it ok to pray for a college basketball team?

I'm of the opinion that the AAC is a mid-major conference, others say they are a high major conference. So in my perception, yes, UConn was a high major, now a mid major, and are about to become a high major again. I don't understand why you would think that a team's status couldn't change.
The AAC had 3 teams in the Football top 25. They are not a mid major conference.

I am talking about basketball not football. I don't know if high, mid, and low major is a thing in college football, but there's a reason why the AAC is not in the P5.

A career 32.5% three point shooter who was like the 8th man for a middle-of-the-road Mountain West team? He's not even the best grad transfer we targeted from UNLV. Hope either this report is wrong or Antonio is way better than I'd anticipate.

I'm also unimpressed with Anonio's numbers, but he does have several high majors chasing him so Wojo isn't the only one who sees something there. My guess is that coaches are intrigued by him making over 90 3Ps as a freshman. Supposedly his shooting hand was injured this past season and impacted his shot, no idea how accurate that report is. Still, even if he becomes a 40% 3P shooter (big if), I can't see him doing much beyond being a 10 minute a game 3P specialist off the bench.

All that says to me is he's an okay NEC player. He made 90 threes, but against D1 competition he made 83/251 (33.1%) and just 7/31 (22.6%) against top-100 opponents. He made a lot because he took a lot, not because he was an efficient three point shooter.

For the love of God, can we please try and keep this thread to potential transfer candidates?
Can we not derail the 10,000th thread arguing about Buzz and Wojo, Derrick unnatural carnal knowledgeing Wilson and Jake Thomas, high-major vs. low-major?

Jesus Christ, Marquette hoops is one of the few outlets we have during this crap time....let's make it halfway decent for once.

this Corona transfer season has been the wild wild west. Players committing to programs without stepping foot on campuses, or meeting coaches/teammates in person. I personally didn't think kids would ramp things up this quick, but much like musical chairs, everyone wants to find a seat and not be left out in cold.

As long as Wojo can still land even just one from that A tier of K.Mane, J.Turner, D.Carton, A.Griffin it is a win with the incoming freshman arriving.

Jonah Antonio & Abjorn Midtgaard - would be underwhelming to say the least

Who did Buzz “coach up?” Buzz was a better coach. Not a ton of his players developed from a nobody to a star. Butler developed a lot, Vander and Davante developed a decent amount, otherwise no more than what we’ve seen with Wojo’s players (JJJ, Markus, Sacar).
Butler also kept developing in the pros. Some players peak early. Dominic James peaked as a freshmen. Other players peak later. Crawford and Mckaskill(sp) were  other players, who just kept getting better. I doubt anybody in high school would of projected them as NBA players. Coaches can tell players what to work on how to work on it, but players that have peaked will not get significantly better.

I'm fine with Antonio if he is the 12th or 13th guy and 5th or 6th guard option. But he needs to be behind Koby, Greg, Sy, Mane/Carton/Turner, and maybe Dex.
