In News Not Related to Last Night's Meltdown Rumor Central posted yesterday that transferring Texas A&M guard, Jamal Branch, was considering Marquette as a possible destination:

"Last week we wrote about the decision of Texas A&M freshman Jamal Branch to transfer, and now Jeff Goodman of reports that the freshman guard would like to join Marquette.

The only question is whether Buzz Williams and the Golden Eagles have a mutual interest in the 6-foot-3 point guard.

Branch averaged 4.2 points in 18.6 minutes per game during his short-lived 11-game career with the Aggies. Ranked the No. 51 recruit in the class of 2011 by ESPNU, one has to believe there will be plenty of interest in Branch, whether from Marquette or elsewhere"

Now, as this post points out, we don't know whether or not the interest is mutual. And I'm not exactly sure how this would work, since MU does not currently have a scholarship available for next season. But it is something to keep an eye on. Branch would obviously fit right in at Marquette, which is clearly the #1 destination in college basketball for dudes with a first name of Jam_l.
