Crittle, Shumpert updates

Chicago Hoops reports that MU target Iman Shumpert is having a strong showing at the LeBron James Skills Academy. Shumpert's every move is monitored by a host of big-time coaches, including MU's Tom Crean and UNC's Roy Williams.

Shumpert told ChicagoHoops.com that he will look to trim down his list of schools after he gets an opportunity to make visits to both Notre Dame and Bradley. Shumpert is also looking forward to playing out the balance of the month of July with both Full Package, and also his Oak Park-River Forest High School team.
Meanwhile, MU's early lead for PF Josh Crittle has evaporated. Midstate Hoops reports that Indiana has offered Crittle, who now lists MU and IU as his favorites.

Well, Marquette is definitely going after the Bluest of the Blue Chips. Give Crean credit for going after them and selling his best for Marquette. I think as Marquette fans we have to realize the competition out there. Requires perseverance like sales in the business world. Expect a fair amount of rejection before the purchase.
