"My rule was I wouldn't recruit a kid if he had grass in front of his house.

Is there anybody out there?

After holding what amounted to open auditions for a big man over the last several months, Buzz Williams found his man in 6'8" bruiser Davante Gardner. The Virginia product got the nod earlier this month after MU cycled through visits from Kevin Noreen, Gorgui Dieng, David Hahn, Steadman Short and presumably others. Welcome to the remarkably wacky world of recruiting. It says here that MU isn't done building next season's roster, so stay tuned.

Gardner talks about his decision to attend Marquette here. To make room for the latest recruit Yous Mbao left the program.

Other updates of note:

Finally, please consider sponsoring or participating in the 2010 Warrior Day Golf Outing.
