Having shot interest out to De’Vion Harmon earlier Thursday, it appears that the Marquette Golden Eagles aren’t finished yet.
MU has now shot out offers to two more 2019 recruits: Josh Nickelberry and Calvin “CJ” Felder per Prep Hoops’ Justin Byerly.

As it mentions in the tweet, both Nickelberry and Felder are members of AAU squad Game Elite, whom are based out of Georgia.
Nickelberry is currently listed as a four-star shooting guard on 247Sports. He’s a Top 60 recruit nationally (57th), ranks 10th among shooting guards in 2019 and is ranked fifth among players listed in Georgia. That puts him in the company of Oscar Tshiebwe, Aundre Hyatt, Sharif Kenny and top-ranked Ashton Hagans, a five-star who, like Nickelberry, attends the famed Oak Hill Academy.
Felder meanwhile is listed as a three-star over on Future150. He’s listed as a small forward, checking in a 6-foot-7 and weighs in at 185 lbs. Per his F150 page, he has a standing offer from Charleston Southern right now.
MU certainly appears to be laying the groundwork for their pursuits in 2019 with offers and interest clearly out there in the forefront now. We’ll see how Wojo & Co. can build their roster going forward.
