Mitchell chooses Gators

Marquette suffered a recruiting setback this morning when Jon Mitchell of NYC chose Billy Donovan's offer at the University of Florida over offers at both MU and Virginia. Mitchell was widely thought to be Marquette's top 2006 priority.

In other developments, Chas McFarland, a rapidly rising 7-foot prospect from Worcester Academy in MA, by way of Lovington, IL, has scheduled an official visit to Marquette. McFarland visited USC this past weekend, and will now visit Providence, BC, Marquette and a fifth school the next four weekends.

This is no time to panic, Marquette fans, as Coach Crean has many irons in the 2006 recruiting fire as we speak.

IT sucks that Mitchell - on the verge of breaking Ben Gordon's career scoring mark at Mt. Vernon - wants to be a Gator. The SEC is a great conference but it isn't going to be anything like playing in the MSG in front of your homies.

He's going to transfer. Quote me on that.
