I would be very happy if Shaka landed an all American point guard.

Sorry a little hyperbole was too much for you to bear.
How about "a player much like Tyler Kolek."

They said “most like” and then you were given a reason.

No one said copy or even much like TK. Just most like

And apparently that’s been too much for you to bear

He's most like Kolek because his fourth year assist rate was only 3% lower than Kolek's first year assist rate? That's the entire basis for the comparison?
I'd venture to guess there are a couple dozen or more players in the portal with an assist rate within 3% of Kolek's frosh rate. Are they all similar to Kolek?

15-41 from 3.  52.8 effective fg%

Define “shooter”

Edit:  only a frosh

Some context for the low attempt numbers.  UC Irvine ranked 352nd in 3PA/FGA. Over the last 7 seasons,  Coach Turners Anteaters have ranked 305th or lower in that category.  The 4 seasons before that they were still bottom half never ranking higher than 215.

The low 3P attempts are very much apart of Turners system.  Saran was probably the third best three point shooter on that team.  The top 2 were a senior and a COVID senior
TAMU

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

Dillon Mitchell is in the Portal.

Anybody know who this is? Followed by Stevie, Wrightsil and some coaches.

https://twitter.com/TheGolden_Son/status/1779967426832019862?t=w4muyyWIwO_Egkuc7kpraQ&s=19

Seems like there's probably nothing to it but Mitchell would be a great fit.

Why does this account suggest he would go play for Shaka? I don't think Shaka recruited him at Texas.

Dillon Mitchell is a decent player but not someone that fills any need we have. He’s a good rebounder and defender and crazy athlete but that’s it. Can’t shoot 3s at all and not tall enough to play center

I'm sure it's the thought of him coming from Texas and thinking he fits Marquette's style with his length and activity. I don't see it as likely for a number of reasons, but I've been surprised before.

You kinda just proved why he does fill a need.

Rebounding.

We started

Kolek
Morsell
Lewis
OMax
Kur

Why couldn't we start

Kam Jones
Stevie Mitchell
David Joplin
Ben Gold
Dillon Mitchell
?

They definitely could, and probably will, but Mitchell absolutely elevates a ceiling and improves the rebounding.

You can. Sure. But I think we need a better option to back up the post that Amadou or Hamilton. Gold has some great attributes but has been foul prone.

That seems likely to be the starting lineup.
But behind Gold and Kam (assuming Kam is running the point) is a whole lot of unknowns. You have a scholie to give. Why not use it to shore up one of those slots with a known quantity?

No. I don’t think so. I think a bigger wing would be fine but not Mitchell.

Seems like there are plenty of this body type already on the roster (Jop, Amadou, Parham, Owens).

Why not? Especially because at 6'8" it is much more likely that he's 220+ lbs.

It also moves 6'8" 225 David Joplin to the 3 and just like that our Starting lineup goes

6'5"
6'3"
6'8"
6'8"
6'11"

More of what we've been looking for.

I don't know anything about Dillon Mitchell but the question is are Amadou, Parham and/or Owens ready to contribute next year?

Pegging a transfer as a "shaka" type of player is hilarious.

The lack of common sense it takes to do that is funny

I'm glad Shaka thought Tyler Kolek was his type of player.

Not to mention Kur, Morsell, and OMax.

As backups? I would hope so.
