With just Ike Eke on board for the class of 2017, Marquette men’s basketball head coach Steve Wojciechowski has as many as three more available scholarships for his next recruiting class, and even more than that further down the road. Based on some crafty detective hustle (ok, I typed “marquette offer” into the Twitter search bar), it seems that Wojo was hard at work offering scholarships to various high school players on Monday evening.
Let’s recap, shall we?
William Douglas (Class of 2017; Point Guard; 6’5”, 175 lb.; Memphis, TN)
Douglas doesn’t have a star rating or a player ranking at this point, according to 247 Sports, but he does have offers from Florida State, Memphis, Ole Miss, Oregon, Saint Louis, TCU, and UNLV.
Darryl Morsell (Class of 2017; Combo Guard; 6’4”, 200 lb.; Baltimore, MD)
Darryl Morsell, a class of 2017 SG playing for Team Melo (MD), just picked up an offer from Marquette.— Pat Lawless (@PatLawless_) July 19, 2016
Just like Douglas, Morsell doesn’t have a ranking or a star rating according to 247 Sports. He does, however, have a long list of scholarship offers, including Cincinnati, Kansas State, Maryland, Notre Dame, Pitt, and West Virginia.
Terrence Lewis (Class of 2017, Small Forward, 6’5”, 180 lb.; Milwaukee, WI)
Marquette has followed 2017 WF Terrence Lewis (6-6) for a long time. Steve Wojciechowski offered the Riverside star tonight.— Mark Miller (@WisBBYearbook) July 19, 2016
When in doubt, recruit the four star kids from the same city where you’re located. Lewis attends Riverside University HS in Milwaukee, and he’s ranked as the #99 player in his class by 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings. Marquette is listed as “warm” for Lewis already, along with three other schools: Illinois, Iowa State, and UNLV. He has four Crystal Ball predictions, all since mid-May of this year, with two each for Illinois and Iowa State.
(In case you were wondering, yes, the title of that video says Lewis is unsigned, and yes, he’s not eligible to sign a letter of intent until November, and yes, that kind of boo boo drives me totally insane.)
Courtney Ramey (Class of 2018; Point Guard; 6’0”, 170 lb.; Saint Louis, MO)
Can I interest you in a top 100 point guard? Ramey ranks #75 in the 247 Sports Composite system, and that makes him a four star prospect. Unsurprisingly, 247 lists Kansas as “warm” for Ramey, even though the Jayhawks haven’t offered him a scholarship yet. He does have offers from eight other schools, including Arkansas, Kansas State, Missouri, and Texas.
Torrence Watson (Class of 2018; Shooting Guard; 6’3”, 175 lb.; Saint Louis, MO)
247 Sports has Watson as the #98 player in the class of 2018, which makes him a four star prospect. The fifth best player in Missouri, Watson also has offers from Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas State, according to his 247 Sports page.
