Marquette Basketball Made A Bunch Of 2019 Offers On Thursday

That’s what happens on the first day you can call recruits.

NCAA Basketball: Marquette at Providence Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Marquette basketball staff did not sit idly by on the first day they were able to make phone calls to Class Of 2019 recruits, that’s for sure. We have reports of offers to four different recruits, two of them in the top 100, along with two phone calls expressing interest in two more top 100 guys.

First, the guys getting offers:

Isaiah Stewart

After his Rivals highlight feature earlier in the week, this should come as no surprise to you. At #44 in the country, the 6’8”, 243 lb. power forward is the highest ranked prospect that Marquette already offered.

Josh Nickelberry

Nickelberry is a 6’4”, 175 lb. shooting guard who hails from Virginia, where he attends Oak Hill Academy. He’s ranked #57 in the country according to 247 Sports’ Composite system.

De’Vion Harmon

I’m going to guess that Mr. Harmon is a fan of Dwyane Wade. Harmon, a 6’0”, 192 lb. point guard, is ranked #63 by the 247 Sports Composite system, and like Nickelberry, his picture reveals experience with USA Basketball. Harmon attends Guyer High School in Denton, Texas, where he is teammates with......

Jalen Wilson

Wilson does not have the same national profile as Harmon, but he appears to be pretty good in his own right. The 6’6”, 185 lb. small forward is ranked #128 by 247 Sports internal system, so we’ll have to wait to see on where the other services end up slotting him.

C.J. Felder

I know his Twitter says “Calvin,” but his 247 Sports page says C.J., so we’ll stick with that. Felder comes from South Carolina, and he plays on the club circuit with Josh Nickelberry. He doesnt have a star rating or a class ranking yet.

That’s the four guys with offers already. The MU staff made some phone calls just to talk to guys as well.

Josh Green

Hey, lookit that, another Earl Watson Elite player. The #26 player in the country according to 247 Sports, Green hails from Phoenix, Arizona. He’s a 6’5”, 190 lb. shooting guard.

UPDATE: Marquette already offered Green a scholarship.

Will Baker

If the goal of recruiting is to get the best tall guys you can find, then you understand why Baker has the attention of so many teams. The Austin, Texas product stands 6’9” and weighs 220 pounds and he’s only finished up his sophomore year of high school. 247 Sports says he’s the #80 player in the class and the eighth best center.

Marquette projects to have two open scholarships for the fall of 2019. Here’s the up-to-the-minute scholarship table.
