Jarmusz headed to the Big Ten

These days Big Ten schools are offering and prospects are taking little time in deciding. Tim Jarmusz had an offer from a Big Ten power presented to him this week and the next thing you know he's committed.

Tim Jarmusz, a 6-foot-6 senior out of Oshkosh (Wis.) West, is headed to Wisconsin. Jarmusz was offered by the Badgers this week and he jumped all over the chance to attend Wisconsin.

"He wanted to go there all along," Jarmusz's Fox Valley Skillz AAU coach, Ritchie Davis, said. "I told everyone that if they offer its over. End of story."

Well, it's the end of the story because they offered and Tim accepted Friday afternoon.

"He's a good kid," Davis said. "He'll fit in well and he's made for that system. He'll fit in well there and with the guys they have and the class they're bringing he fits it."

From watching Jarmusz this spring, his strength would appear to be his ability to knock down perimeter shots. He's not a guy with a big reputation and for the most part has managed to fly below the national radar which isn't such a bad thing given the success rate of "late bloomers" these days.

The bottom line here is that the young man has a skill and he's taking it to Madison. "He shoots it and he scores it," Davis said. "His strength is his pull-up game. As well as he shoots the 3, it's the pull-up game that is very solid. He's put a lot of time into it. The fact is the kid is 6-foot-6 and still growing."
