That’s What They Said: Reactions To Greg Elliott Committing To Marquette

Let’s see what the internet has to say about the newest Golden Eagle.

NCAA Basketball: Maine at Marquette Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday morning, Marquette got a verbal commitment from top 200 prospect Greg Elliott. The shooting guard from Michigan has started to draw a lot of high profile attention since the fall signing period, and the addition of Elliott gives MU four incredibly athletic freshmen for the fall of 2017.

Here’s a few of the reactions from around the college basketball landscape.

Endless Motor Sports:

From distance, Greg is above average and displays really solid mechanics. Generally speaking, free throw percentage is a good indicator of how good a prospect will be from distance at the next level. Greg shot 84.9% during EYBL play in 2016, and that bodes really well for his 3 point shooting at Marquette. I expect Greg to be a good 3 point shooter in college that hovers in the high 30s in terms of percentage, as he has a really good shot from distance when his feet are set. Greg is a very good rebounder for a wing and demonstrates good motor and multiple efforts on the glass.


Marquette fans should be really excited that Greg hasn’t even touched the surface of his full potential, as he will no doubt add a ton of muscle mass and refine his skill set as a freshman. Greg has a rare combination of skill, length, athletic ability and motor that could see him be an all Big East type player in a few years.

Scout’s Brian Snow:

Elliott is a versatile 6-foot-3 guard with long arms and a nose for the basketball. He should immediately be able to help Marquette on the defensive end where they struggled this season. Elliott has excellent athleticism and great length which allows him to be somebody that can guard multiple positions. Along with that he also plays with a high-motor, and has proven to be productive against some of the nation's best players.

Scout Director of Basketball Recruiting & Fox Sports CBB Insider Evan Daniels:

Michigan Preps/Rivals’ Branden Hunter:

Marquette Wire’s John Steppe (albeit written before Elliott’s commitment):

Aside from his obvious impact on the court, Elliott’s recruitment has additional importance as a testing ground for whether Wojciechowski can consistently recruit in Michigan. Signing Elliott would mean that three out of four signees came from the state of Michigan while turning down at least one of the two perennial powerhouses in the state, Michigan or Michigan State.
