I dont know if it is just this area or all over but as it seems like when a prep athlete is succesful and is going to move onto the next level they get torn apart. First this year with Seidel and now with Scott. Why cant people just be happy that we have some amazing talent in the area and wish the athletes the best of luck.

I hope he is a star. I just wanted to defend the right of someone to say he may not be.

So are you saying that Marquette doesn't have enough brains to think of stuff like this? Millions of highschool seniors about to graduate and Marquette signs somebody that "won't pan out"? I think they may have done a little research and have a pretty good idea about what he can do. Granted sometimes there are cases where high prospects don't do as well as they are projected to, but you can't expect Scott to have an outstanding freshman year. He's a freshman and I don't think he was signed to light up the scoreboard. Yes it would be nice if he did, but i'm guessing he was signed to uphold the strengths in the Marquette basketball team.

So you are saying all division one scholarship players turn out to be good choices?

Marquette offered him early.....noticed his above average shooting capability and took a chance he would grow a few more inches.....which didn't happen.
Will be tough for him at the D1 college level....i would have been more impressed if he went to one of the D1 public HS instead of 'quinas.

I see ... you talked to Tom Crean and got the inside scoop on his thoughts about Scott, right? He didn't SIGN until this fall. If they were concerned about his height and ability they could have easily rescinded the offer. Their current guards are smallish so I hardly think height is a big concern. Scott shoots better than their current guards, especially from the line. He'll be just fine.

The Marquette coaching staff is still very high on Scott Christopherson. They like his ability to shoot, his ability to penetrate and, most of all, his desire to get better.

he will face a tougher defense at the next level and may need to add a few pounds of muscle to be able to defend and score against bigger guards. increase range on jump shots including 3's. he will be fine. people need to just calm down and play ball and enjoy the ride.
