Justin Turner started following...Sam Hauser  ?-( Anyone want to speculate if that's good or bad for MU??

OMG
That would be an epic circle jerk
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.

Sam who?

Wichita State transfer Jamarius Burton tells me he will make a  decision this week.

So we can expect a decision between two of our top targets in the next few days - Burton and Turner.

Purdue's Matt Haarms will be a grad transfer.
DePaul mentioned as a school that has reached out.

Correct...and Idk y, just a gut feel that Burton chooses MU. In the last article about him when he cut to 4, he mentioned that style of play was a huge factor, and he wanted to play faster than he did at Wichita. Of his 4 finalists, MU by far plays the fastest. According to Xavier insiders, they don't believe they will be his choice. Seton hall is likely to get a commit from Bryce Aiken tomorrow, which would leave them with one scholarship left that they really have to hold for Sanoga. That leaves Texas Tech and MU. If style of play and playing fast matters to him, and it does...“The biggest thing is style of play. I ask the coaches what players I should be watching, and who I play like. All of that little stuff, and then I go back and watch the film to see if I fit in. I am taking into account tempo, how fast teams play, and see if I fit. I don’t know our pace at Wichita but want to play a little bit faster.

Then to me anyway, MU would be his choice over T Tech. I also find it interesting that he has suddenly moved up his timeline. he had originally said a week or two, all of a sudden now it's this week..What is prompting him to decide sooner?? Could be lots of things.

Definite starter..He's a sit out guy so he wouldn't play with Turner, unless of course he got a waiver.

For some reason, I see transfers all playing next year, so if you think he is a starter, your backcourt might be Burton and Turner??

Yes, if he gets a waiver, I could definitely see that as the starting back court. Burton's nickname is "grandpa", because he's an old soul and has been described as very mature and a great leader...just by the thoroughness of how he's gone through the process is a definite indication of that.  I watched Wichita decent amount this last year, and most nights he was their best player on the floor. With his driving ability and Turner's driving ability, I wonder if that will be Wojo's "change in offensive philosophy" next year...guys that can get to the rim and put pressure on the defense repeatedly. Burton did also shoot 38% from 3 last year as well.

definitively interesting when you look at this vs top 50 teams and vs top 100 teams from last year:
http://barttorvik.com/playerstat.php?year=2020&p=Jamarius%20Burton&t=Wichita%20St.

other thing of note, 13 of his 24 total made 3P came in 4 games (2 games in November, other 2 games in March). 11 total in the remaining 26 games. With a 9 game stretch in January & February where he went 2/14. so his 38% 3P is misleading.

Some pretty rough EFG & TS numbers, but a nice passer. Will definitely need some shooters around him

However, Xavier insiders have said he's not going there, and Hall is expected to get a commit today from Bryce Aiken, leaving them with one scholarship which they have to save for Sonogoa. So...MU or Texas Tech is my guess.

Would love Burton to get the dominoes rolling. Then one of Carton/Turner and that is a hell of a transfer period.

Even 1/3 would be good but I'm holding out hope for 2.

None that any of them mentioned. MU didn't really express interest in many either(that we know of).

Aiken commits to SHU, which hopefully takes them out of the running for Burton.

Have never seen him play.  The numbers linked above are fairly pedestrian.  Having a year to sit out and work on his game would help.  WE obviously need to get some more guards in the program, so would be good to land him.

Elite defensive player too. He's not a go to guy like Carton or Turner but he'd be a solid piece and probably our best guard if the roster stays as currently constructed.
