Marquette's Official Announcement Of All Five Signings

You can check out the official press releases for each player on GoMarquette.com, including quotes from Buzz on each player. I'm not going to print those quotes all here, so head over to the official website and check it out.

What is worth noting from the releases is the national ranking of the recruiting class:

Williams and his staff are also in possession of a consensus top-10 recruiting class, which marks the third nationally ranked group since he took over as head coach in 2008-09. Scout.com rates MU’s signees as the seventh-best in the country, followed by Rivals.com (7th), ESPN.com (9th), FoxSports.com (9th) and CBSSports.com (10th).

Three things here: 1) I don't know what the difference is between FoxSports.com and Scout.com, 2) The Rivals ranking doesn't include Jajuan Johnson and 3) the CBSSports.com ranking doesn't include John Dawson or Johnson.

That said, Rivals, ESPN & CBS Sports have Marquette as the third best recruiting class in the Big East, behind only Memphis and Louisville, while Scout has MU second, with only Memphis beating MU out for best recruiting class in the conference.
