FWIW, Scout has him as a 2 star 2007 recruit.

Since he is a JUCO, must be the 2008 slot that is open.  Another interesting fact, he went to Bayview.  Hello Johnnie Lacy?

looks like an 09 recruit according to this.  he didn't qualify academically at bradley.  he probably needs 2 years in juco to get his grades straightened out.

Lacy and Buycks had trouble sharing the ball in HS, and that was with only 1 other talented player on the team.  I can't imagine them being able to share it at MU and still get it to Hayward, Maymon, Williams, Butler etc.

He was a freshman in Juco this year, so he is a 2009 recruit.  He's a 6'3", 185 lb shooting guard.  His Juco team took 6th at the National tournament and he was named to the All-Tournament team this year where he averaged 20 points per game.  He was the all star at Bay View before Johnnie Lacy became the all-star.  He had 31 points his senior year against Vincint (perennial power for those unfamiliar with Wisconsin HS basketball.  He's listed as a 3-star recruit on rivals.  He originally committed to Bradley out of high school (my guess is he didn't qualify, not sure though).  I am guessing that the scout website does not have an updated profile on him because it has him listed as 6'1" 165 and he is definitely bigger than that, and it still has him committed to Bradley.  He averaged 20 points per game his senior year and I would assume was 1st Team All State (could be wrong but he got a lot of publicity).  He'll be ready to come in and play right away.  He won't be the Juco recruit we've become used to, but he probably won't be a superstar either (could be though).  Solid get for Buzz.

He was also considering Texas A&M, Kentucky, Iowa State, Missouri, and Bradley.

That means nothing.  Butler and fulce were both freshman this year in juco as well.

Saw that kid play on time warner sports versus Vincent....Bayview was kept in the game by Buycks but he literally shot every time down.  Not that I could blame him, he was unstoppable.  Although he didn't look nearly as good as the two kids that Vincent had.  Granted it was one game, but I thought Buycks was a bit wild.

Yes, but Butler and Fulce were both full qualifiers out of high school.  Buycks was not, that's why he's at the JUCO and not Bradley.

i agree.  i said the same thing above.  i just meant the mere fact he was a freshman means nothing.

My bad dawg.  Regardless, he's an 09 recruit.  About him not being nearly as good as the two Vincent guys I wouldn't agree with that.  I'd say those two are more disciplined players.  I think Buzz will make him more disciplined, and being around a team full of good players not just one other good players.  But yes, Diante Garrett was amazing (Jim Gosz, coach at King - another perennial Wisconsin high school power - said about Garrett that it is like he is watching Devin Harris all over again), and Perine was very good as well (although a punk, from what I hear).  They're all different players, Perine and Garrett were lanky but long and Buycks was a lot stronger.  I like how Buycks uses his strength to his advantage.  If I had a choice I'd take Garrett over Buycks by a little but then Buycks over Perine by far.

Is this really that good of a get?...kinda seems like filling a roster spot. Who else was really serious about the kid? Kinda seems like an academic liability? I am optimistic but a little concerned about picking him up.

He may be an academic liability but some pretty well respected coaches thought he was talented enough to go after.  Iowa State was on him really hard and had offered.  Texas A&M and Tennessee had been on him for awhile, TC had shown interest while at MU and was starting to show interest at Indiana, and Billy Gillespie was really pushing recently.

So he plays JUCO next year and is a 2009 recruit with two years eligibility.  That's two forwards and a shooting guard for the 2009 class.  If Buzz does not use the 2008 slot, that leaves two scholarships left.  One for a point guard and one for Jamil Wilson?

Worst case scenario, he's a good Acker/Cubillan replacement for a year or two.

Wilson seems to be a real long shot these days.  Plus MU needs another true big in that class with Burke graduating.

Wilson is gone. If this news is true, we've now taken two fliers in the 2009 class (if Buycks is even 09). Have to get a top flight PG. And the next need is a 5 man. That leaves nothing for Wilson.

And, stone cold, your link went to an error page. You wrote that Buycks is a very good get so I'm wondering how often you've seen him play and what his strengths/weaknesses  would be.

This picture remains fuzzy and I'll wait until it clears but for now this seems a strange move.

nola, time to take the stick out.   If you search the i-net you'll get plenty of first hand accounts.
