Buzz Seals the Deal

Just one week after his official visit, Juan Anderson from Castro Valley, California verbally committed to Marquette University yesterday. The 6'6" wing, rated as the best wing player on the West Coast by Scout, chose MU over Arizona State and California. Juan counts as yet another Top 100 recruit for the Marquette program.

Anderson is the first commitment from the 2011 class for MU. The rangy Californian is reflective of the type of athlete Coach Buzz is building the program around -- skilled, athletic players how can play multiple positions effectively. Switchables.

The, ahem, buzz about this verbal is deafening on the interwebs. ESPN recruiting expert Paul Biancardi says Buzz landed a good one.

Here are some more media takes on this. Rosiak has a great story, including quotes from Anderson's AAU coach and his mother. Rosiak also delivers an interview with Juan (must read). Finally, IWB also checks in with an article, including quotes from Anderson himself.

Marquette has two scholarships left for the 2011 class. Uncommitted seniors Mike Shaw, Jarion Henry and D'Angelo Harrison will be on campus next week at Marquette Madness. By the way, freshly minted Marquette commit Juan Anderson is coming back for that event too.

We'll close this one out with some highlight videos. Welcome to Marquette, Juan!
