MU Overload says that Norman is only the third player from MA that we have ever landed. The other two are Zack McCall and Vic Lazzaretti (2 year player in the 80s who transferred to Loyola Marymount)
Vic played at Creighton Prep. Maybe he transferred from out east.

Now the million dollar question:

Who leaves after the year?  And what if no one willingly wants to leave?

Shaka is building a very strong foundation. The Wizard of Scoop, who is the gold standard, preached culture and foundation for past year and I love what Shaka is building. Always great to land a target recruit.

By the way, Vic Laz was from Nebraska if memory serves me. I believe he was teammate of Kerry Trotter.

It will work out.   Worry about  it 7 months from now.

Right on, Goose. Norman is a dude. And most importantly, screams culture fit. Looks a lot like the Nova guards that eat us alive.

Lazar and Todd graduated from nD Prep in Fitchburg MA. That's all I can remember.

true, but both were not from there (Lazar from Buffalo, Todd from Chicago).

Zach McCall was from Fitchburg, MA but did not go to ND Prep. His son played with MDA in the TBT last summer too.

So is the Massachusetts' residency definition like Scoop's definition of "alumni" now?  Or the MUAD's definition of "freshman"?  ;D

Btw, Todd's hometown was Huntington WVA.

Yes and no.  It’s a fair question but probably one to ask after enjoying the moment.  Pretty safe bet the staff has an inkling about what’s going on, though, so not overly concerned about it

With 8 of our players Freshmen or Sophomores, and many playing similar types of positions, I think it’s pretty inevitable someone will leave.

When you go to school for one academic year in a place that wouldn’t make you “from” there. Seven semesters at at MU and I would never consider myself a Wisconsinite.

When did Todd move from WV to Suburban Chicago (New Trier, right?).

Semester aboard. No way I was graduating in seven semesters! Of course I’d go when we made the CUA tourney run.

Mayo is WV. Townsend was New Trier with Lottich (lived with him and played together). TT went to prep in New Hampshire before MU.

In this era of college hoops, the scholarships are one year contracts.  So in saying that, there’s 5 or 6 players that you can think of that might leave.  Not a problem, you will see in Feb. or March one kid will not see the court!

The 1982-83 and 1983-84 media guides give Andover, MA as Vic Lazzaretti’s hometown. (See attached).

When there are discrepancies in information, I always give the MU media guides the highest priority.

This over recruiting could wind up being a good thing. What more motivation to play well does one need, not just for more playing time, you just might be the one to get cut. Also with the instant transfer rule over recruiting just might/will become the new norm. As TAMU has said were looking at 6 guys for the 24 class. Omax, Tyler and Oso all still have 3 years of eligibility counting this season. So it is certain more than one player won't be on the roster over the next two seasons, being it getting cut or a voluntary transfer or going pro.

Over-recruiting is not the "new norm." It has gone on for years and years and years.

Years ago, Scoopers were talking about players getting Creaned and then Buzz-cut.
There were 681 attempts to ban or restrict access to a record 1,651 different books in schools through August of this year. What books? Mainly those written by or about people of color or that deal with LGBTQ issues.

BAN ASSAULT RIFLES, NOT BOOKS!
