Kenpom appreciates...

Bo Ryan was also ahead of the curve in some areas that modern analytics value.  He emphasized limiting turnovers, which ties in to the value of a possession.

Ryan also had his post players shooting threes before most.  Many big men shoot 3s nowadays, but when Wisconsin started doing it the concept was seen as a novelty.

Ryan also understood the value of volume three point shooting.  Sure, a bad shooting night cost them at times, but it also helped Wisconsin maximize their scoring.

Ryan emphasized efficiency and turned it into Wisconsin's brand.

I am delighted with Shaka's transfer recruiting. He recruited 4 quality young men who each contributed to MU earning an NCAA bid. Two of those players are foundation pieces going forward.

This year Shaka had one spot he could recruit for. The second spot was in suspense until June 1 and Justin's decision.

There have been 3  recruits in recent years in the Big East that have a similar profile as our transfer this year . In that they were D2 National Champion/ Player of The Year/ All American that being Zach Hankins at X, Ryan Hawkins at Creighton and Max Strus at DePaul. All three were very productive Big East players to varying degrees. NAIA, where Mr. Wrigtsil , was National Player of the Year and National Champion , is approximately equal to D2 ( offers scholarships etc)

Shaka recruited a transfer player that exactly fits what this team needs. A long and athletic inside player, with great versatility willing to play a major role on defense and rebounding and a proven winner.  Exactly the type of player we are going to need in Big East Play Also if one reads the interviews with Mr. Wrigtsil, he has a chip on his shoulder, and wants to prove he belongs at this level. That self motivation is fantastic. We are getting a gritty MU Style player.

Vote for Pedro

Agree with most of this and like what I've heard about Wrightsil. I do wish he was more of a 3-point threat,. Because you can never have enough shooting ... and I'm not sure we do.

But we can use more rebounding which is his role.

Defintely Shaka's type. Long, athletic wing who is extremely disruptive on defensive and excels in transition. Big jump in competition from LIU to Marquette...in some ways it may even be a bigger jump than Wrightsil is making. He would need a waiver I believe to play immediately but maybe the late coaching change would be enough.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I believe he’s a grad transfer so immediate eligibility.

Yeah, saw he already played four so almost certainly immediately eligible.

But offers are very decent so there must be something there.

Could be. Could also be that per Evan Miya, all but 1 top of the top 150 transfers have committed already so any school with a scholarship burning a hole in their pocket is willing to take a flyer on him because it's not like they are going to use it otherwise

Could be, though if you have an open scholarship this late, no harm in taking a flier, so that might explain the offers.

But I'm certainly intrigued. Over 120 ORtg his first three years, and a still impressive 108 with a higher usage rate last year. Solid rebounder, doesn't turn the ball over, and enough of a shooter to be respected from three while being really good inside. In addition, while his efficiency took a hit against quality opposition, it wasn't the complete cratering some other players have. Worth a look.

Hmm another player reached out to, and this late in the game. I was reliably informed Shaka liked his roster and we were set on transfers

Guess he wouldn’t mind another big with experience, so maybe he is not as excited about his prospects as you think??

You don't think shaka likes his roster? I don't know who told you we were done with transfers.  We were done with transfers that were in the portal a month ago. This guy is fresh in the portal as of two days ago
