Marquette Golden Eagles June recruiting roundup

Marquette’s recruiting efforts were as furious as their up-tempo offense.

Marquette stayed busy in June in the recruiting world.

That... might be putting it mildly.

In total, the Golden Eagles sent out six scholarship offers from June 15 through Monday, with more to possibly come in the next few days. Who knows?

The targets were largely from the class of 2019, as five prospects from that class were given scholies. Two of them came from the same school, as Guyer’s Jalen Wilson and De’Vion Harmon were targeted by Wojo and his staff.

Two others from the southeast were put under the microscope, as Josh Nickelberry and CJ Felder were given offers too. Then there’s Isaiah Stewart of Rochester, who was offered early on as well. Four of the five (sans Felder) are listed as four-star recruits, so Wojo and his staff will be targeting some uberly-talented players to say the least.

The lone 2020 prospect wasn’t hard for Marquette to find. They stayed in state, offering Sun Prairie’s Jalen Johnson, who holds an offer from that other school in Wisconsin. No, not Green Bay or Milwaukee. The Badgers. As of now, it looks like UW and MU will be jostling for Johnson’s services, which should be a fun sight to see.

Offering up recruits wasn’t the only thing Marquette did this month either. No, they hosted two recruits as well, with one standout whose last name rings a bell. Joey Hauser, the top recruit in Wisconsin for 2018 and a Top 30 recruit nationally, visited Marquette this past weekend. That’s going to be something to keep your eye on, as Hauser recently visited Wisconsin and Michigan State is in his crosshairs, too.

Ty Mosely, a 2018 guard from Chicago, also visited Marquette this past week. He’s the third-ranked recruit in the state of Illinois for 2018 and sixth-best combo guard, as this four-star recruit may be one to watch too. MU will have to jostle with some area schools as DePaul offered him a while back while Bradley and Illinois are interested too.

There was also some good news for Marquette as St. Louis guard Torrence Watson included the Golden Eagles among his Top 8 choices earlier this month. Marquette joined fellow Big East schools Butler and Creighton in the race for Watson, a four-star guard in the class of 2019 that will likely be making waves going forward.

So... busy and frenetic are the words to describe Marquette’s month of June. With the live period set to begin next month, it’s safe to say this activity will probably be even more high-octane.
