Patrick Hazel Visiting MU - UPDATED

Per a report on Marquette Hoops, 6'7" 220 pound Patrick Hazel of Blair Academy (NJ) has received a scholarshop offer from Marquette. As of Thursday night Hazel is already on the MU campus, and Scout.com filed this interesting article -- complete with Patrick's impressions of Marquette.

Hazel began his high school career in Bayside, Queens before enrolling at Blair Academy. Blair is the same program that produced Charlie Villanueva of the Milwaukee Bucks, Royal Ivey of the Atlanta Hawks, the Chicago Bulls' Luol Deng, and current Boston College freshman Shamari Spears. Blair Academy has one of the most successful programs on the East Coast.

Marquette currently has three players on its roster from the East Coast: Dwight Burke (NYC/St. Benedict's, NJ), David Cubillan (Venezuela/St. Benedict's, NJ), and Lazar Hayward (Buffalo/Notre Dame Prep).

What about Royal Ivey (of the ATL Hawks) from Blair Academy? He started the exodus to Blair and should be given his just do.
