MILWOIK (AP) – Marquette have added Tyler Colek to former George W. Mason և goalkeeper նախկին Olivier-Maxense Prosper’s former Clemson striker as the Golden Eagles change their roster under new manager Shaka Smart.
School officials announced on Thursday the recruitment of Colek Prosper, as well as new freshmen Emarion Ellis, Kiean Itheger, and David Op Oplin.
The college, which is 6 feet 3, was named the 10th Atlantic Newcomer of the Year 2020-21. He started 18 of George Mason’s 21 games, averaging 10.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
“He talks about the things that are going to win,” Smart told reporters at a Zoom session. “It simply came to our notice then. He is about work ethic. The boy is constantly in the gym. He prepares all the performances, which, if necessary, are won at both ends of the floor. “
Prosper has played 22 games for Clemson this season, making two freshman starts. The 6-foot-8 striker averaged 2.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 9.7 minutes.
“He can play a number of different positions,” said Smart. “I would not limit him to one point or put a pigeon hole in one place.”
Ellis and Itezer oup oplin were required to play for Smart in Texas before being followed by Market. Smart replaces Steve Wojciechowski, who was fired after leaving 128-95 in seven seasons.
Alice is ranked 105th out of all the prospects in all of the Joplin 114 և Itejere classes in her class, according to 247Sports’ composite recruiter sites ranking.
“I appreciate the loyalty of all the guys who signed with us before and decided to sign with us here,” Smart said. “Those guys, of course, could or would have other opportunities, but there is a relationship that we have.”
The trio joins a freshman class that already includes November’s Cam One ounce (No. 242 at 247Sports) և Stevie Mitchell (# 86).
The market name list is undergoing a major overhaul as the Golden Eagles begin a new era after moving 13-14 last season.
Two of the top four Golden Eagles strikers last season, Kobe McEwen և al amal Kane and Simir Torrens, announced on social media that they were moving. Cain chose Auckland, McQueen chose Weber State, and Torrence chose Syracuse.
Dawson Garcia, who scored in the freshman market (13.0) և’s kickback (6.6), entered the NBA draft debate but did not rule out returning to school.
