Josh Crittle Update

Per the Bullseye Brothers:

Don't believe everything that is out there concerning 6'8 Josh Crittle from Hales Franciscan High School in Chicago. What is accurate is that Marquette and Indiana are the current frontrunners, with Iowa right behind them. Not to say that there isn't also interest from other schools, but right now anything else concerning any others right now is pretty much hearsay. However, one other school that Illinois Prep Bulls-eye knows is showing heavy interest in Crittle is S.M.U. In fact, Mustang assistant coach Lance Irvin, who has strong Chicago-based connections, was in the gym to watch a majority of Crittle's games with Mean Streets at the NIKE Peach Jam.
Their full report can be found here.

Meanwhile Crittle's outstanding summer league team, MeanStreets, made it to the final four of the Nike Main Event in Las Vegas this week where they fell to the to the eventual champs, the New York Gauchos. ChicagoHoops has a report.
