Darius Marrow...?
« on: April 24, 2008, 12:53:05 PM »
I just saw the headline on rivals that Darius Marrow, 6'9 250 C from Georgia was thinking about joining the team for 2008.  Does anyone have more info on this situation and Mr. Marrow?

This article says he is a "south carolina signee" but that was several weeks ago.

His recent quotes on Scout:

Marquette has a new coach, not too many big men," said Morrow. "I can bring them some size to the paint."

Fresh off his release from his national letter on intent to South Carolina, he has re-opened his recruiting and plans to take three official visits.

"I have narrowed my list to three...Marquette, Auburn and East Carolina."


Would be nice to add another big body.

Based on what the South Carolina scout board moderator said, I'd take this kid in a heartbeat. Not many big men are out there right now and we could sure use some size!

Sweet!  This guy is pretty big and seems to have some interest.  I need to do some more research, but I hope that Buzz has some interest since he would help I'm sure.

His team won state in AAAA (the second highest class in Georgia), and he was second team all-state in AAAA

I forget which is which, Rivals or Scout, but on one site he's 6'8" and 250....the other has him at 6'9" and 260

So basically he's about the same size as Burke....but if he has a better game....then great success!

Could light another fire under Burke...hopefully doesn't set him back...but it'd be nice if we had our own...not quite twin towers, but twin hulks for sure.

Where does this kid rank nationally compared to Otule?

I've heard more good things about Morrow than Otule when I read about them, but it's hard to say who ranks better nationally considering Otule is still getting acclimated with his new position at center.

It's refreshing to find ourselves contending for some polished big men. How many of these were we in competition for under the Tanned Two-Faced Mis-Creant?

Read up on him.  This kid is better than Dwight coming out of high school.  Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Va Tech were also interested.

He had Providence, Cinncinati, Penn State, UAB offers (scout/rivals info) to go along with his USC offer before he decommitted.  

Also, I have no idea about his game, but I think this is precisely the type of player Crean failed to go after before. 3 star bigs who could develop nicely over 4 years. It always seemed like we were going for the instant impact 4-5 star guys who came in ready to play big minutes. These 4-5 star guys also were coveted by every other high-major program out there thus the 0% batting average. Mid-majors make their living on fully developed Junior and senior bigs who just know how to play smarter than more highly touted fresh/soph big men on the major teams.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't forget he's going to play in college this fall.  Almost all of the major schools have already filled their scholarship limit for next year and some are close to thier max with scholarships for the following class. 

With all of the coaching changes year in and out and the pressure to sign players so early, patience with scholarship offers (saving one for the spring) might be a great thing.

What concerns me (from the other thread) is the lack of attention Horn has given him.  It sounds like Horn doesn't want him around at all and was hoping he would ask out.  If a school doesn't have a lot of bigs, making no effort to keep this guy around is a little troubling.  Still, if we can't land a better overall player than Marrow (be it a point guard or a big) I'll take him rather than banking a scholarship when there are still a minimum of three open slots to be filled for 2009.

The problem with that logic is N Williams.  If I was on the outside looking in, I'd be wondering why MU released Williams so quickly.  It could mean something ... might not. 8-)

Brewpaul I agree - unless there is a given reason why SC let him go, we are shooting in the dark here and the lack of attention could be driven my a number of factors.  How D. Horn handles his business at SC is of zero concern to me.

I don't know Vike, I just saw one ranking (Hoopscoop) that had him at 366.  That's scary low

Chico, take that with a grain of salt, that was his ranking as a Jr, not after his Sr season, and was published on Published on September 1, 2006.

Ironically, that list doesn't even have Tyshawn Taylor on it at all.  So glad we got rid of that looser!

Scout has him listed immediately above Otule.  Even though they're not rated, both are three stars and it would appear Morrow is 45 and Otule is 46.  In total rankings, Scout seems to have them at about 242/247.  Just reporting facts; not making a value judgment.
Go Marquette!

Understood Lurch....I'm just putting 2 + 2 + 2 together.  Horn doesn't want him, East Carolina, Auburn and us left, low ranking.

He may turn out to be great, but I think over the years many of the recruiting experts have had incredibly glowing praise about some of our guys only to have them turn out to be far from it.

According to Scouts.inc his final 5 were South Carolina, UAB, Fordham, Providence and LaSalle

According to Scout.com he had offers from Penn State, Cincinnati, East Carolina, South Carolina, and Fordham.

He did make the top 100 in the Georgia High School rankings at #13
