MU's 2009 Recruiting Class rated #1

Here are parts 2 and 3 of my interview with Clark Francis, the publisher of Hoop Scoop who rates MU's 2009 class as tops in Division one. Francis says Buzz Williams needed both quantity and quality in the 2009 class and he hit a home run with each.

Francis says that publishers from other recruiting publications have ridiculed his pick of Marquette's class as #1 for 2009, but Francis is confident in his evaluation. Marquette has added needed depth and has recruited very good players but not the one and done superstars. You see the most successful teams in the NCAA Tournament are those who can keep their veteran players for all four yrs. Here are the two audio interviews:

Francis talks about his long relationship with Hank Raymonds and how he was given a tip several yrs ago about an up and coming assistant coach at Colorado State, named Buzz Williams.
