Almost Friday, Juicers! Today we have brief recruiting and scheduling updates, Rutgers football (they exist?), and Tony Soprano.
McDuffie has yet to see major time at the St. Anthony (N.J.) varsity level but has already received his first high-major offer. Markis received his first offer of any kind from Buffalo last weekend and has since received an offer from Seton Hall. La Salle, Cincinnati, Saint Joseph's and Oregon State have also shown interest in the 6-foot-6 wing.
Markis told City Of Basketball Love that "It feels great," after getting his first offer from Buffalo last weekend. "Looking forward to more, just gotta keep working hard and stay consistent." Well, he didn't have to wait long at all.
Eastern Washington's trip to Seton Hall is confirmed for December 21st. With that date falling on the Saturday before Christmas, the powers-that-be would be smart to schedule this game at Walsh Gymnasium and not Prudential Center.
Despite being a huge television show fan, I have not seen a minute of The Sopranos. Gandolfini's character, Tony Soprano, is of Seton Hall fame due to briefly attending the University, for a semester.
Ha. Look at Rutgers football thinking they are something other than... Rutgers football. Proud champions of the PapaJohns.com Bowl, Pinstripe Bowl... Okay, I'll stop.... St. Petersburg Bowl....
