You're right, 9-9-9 ... that WAS an excellent article. Or at least it was an OK article about an excellent player, one I'm really looking forward to see wearing a Marquette uniform.

Different styles. DJ relied a lot more on pure athleticism. From what I've seen of Norman, he has more strength and uses his body exceptionally well.

I hope not, DJ had no jump shot which will keep him out of the NBA.  Norman has a variety of ways to score from.  But no guard dunked like DJ, he was fun to watch.  Should have stayed and probably would make more in NLI then the G league.

Norman feels more like a Brunson-type. Can get you a couple of ways.

Norman actually reminds me a lot of Morsell the way he is built and moves on the court, just more advanced offensively than Morsell was coming out of HS.  Norman probably isnt quite as good of a defender at this stage, but still I see a lot of similarities.

These rankings are all over the place. Rivals has us at 60. The consensus has us at 40. I have no idea how this relates to performance on the court which is the only thing that matters.

Rivals also has MU with one commitment of the the three Marquette has.

Different sites do it differently. ON3 takes their guesstimated skill rank and then averages it. So a 1 5 star player class is better than a 5 4 star player class.

Largely rankings dont matter for any non top 20 recruit in my eyes. Plus they have a full year to still develop. This class got done a little early.

DJ had some “Holy sh!t!!” dunks. Loved when he’d fake the dribble handoff and then go hammer it down.

Also loved Sam Worthen alley-oopin’ to Artie Green.

Lewis had a few good jams last year.

And that Wade kid wasn’t bad, either.

Found it quite interesting the portion of the article on the fit side of things. It says that Shaka is looking to use multiple ball-handlers and playmakers, which would agree with our 2023 scholarship table. But with that being said I have my concerns about our height within that system. We would have Gold and Oso as our bigs and possibly Al Amadou but he seems fairly skinny. And Gold looks more like a 3-4 with his play style of outside shooting. So having to play against players like Kalkbrenner and Sonogo we will probably struggle just as we have in years past.

Yes.  The roster lacks maulers and 6'7 slashers for the foreseeable future.

Quick, fast and small.  If they get a rebound, fast breaks will happen.  That’s if they get a rebound!

Artie is the gold standard for all time MU best dunkers, IMO. I think Burton would have given him a run for his money if he had stayed.

Great piece from Ben Steele this morning- https://www.jsonline.com/story/sports/college/marquette/2022/09/22/marquette-shaka-smart-recruits-tough-2023-guard-boston-tre-norman/10435764002/

So Tre confirms that he did indeed commit back in April and wasn't interested in any other recruiting pitches after that.

I liked this quote from his coach:

Quote
"We’ve had, I don’t know, 75 (college) coaches come through in the first two weeks (of September) and they’re all like ‘Oh my God, did we miss on that one. They’re geniuses. They stole him. They should be wearing ski masks.' ”

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

I liked this quote from his coach:

This is how you bring in talent when you're not Duke, UNC, Kansas or Kentucky. You get in on them early, you wow them with your personality and your coaching philosophy, you tell them constantly how perfectly they'll fit the culture (sorry) you're building, etc. You make it so they see Marquette as THE place for them, so that when they blow up and the bluebloods start sniffing around, the athlete says, "Thanks, I'm honored, but Shaka's the guy I want to play for."

Obviously, dozens (probably hundreds) of coaches try similar tactics. But we hired Shaka in great part because he relates so well to these young athletes, because he's so good at communicating his message.

Sounds like we've got a really good prospect here, maybe even a great one. Looking forward to seeing Tre in blue and gold!

If Shaka can coach at 75% of the level that he relates to young athletes, we are in for a great run. I cannot stress enough how big of a fan I am of how Shaka represents himself, the program and the university.

I agree Goose.  He gets great buy-in from the players, and that is a critical quality in a coach.  Buzz's best quality was his ability to get buy-in from his players.  Shaka definitely seems to have a solid plan/approach/blueprint on the types of players he wants to bring to MU and their impact on culture.
