Marquette Adds Another Detroit Prospect in Greg Elliott
We hear all the time about teams building recruiting pipelines in different parts of the country. You obviously want to cover your own state, but if you can find a city or state where you can benefit with multiple players, it’s a big deal for the program. That’s currently underway with Marquette and the City of Detroit. Greg Elliott, a 6’3 guard, committed to Marquette making him the third player from the Detroit area to become a Golden Eagle this recruiting period. Elliott is a blast to watch.

Elliott joins his AAU teammates – Jamal Cain and Ike Eke on the Marquette roster. Those three will bring some much-needed toughness to this roster. You think of Detroit-bred basketball players, and you’re mind goes to Jalen Rose or one of the other Fab Five members. You also think about the Pistons teams throughout the year. It’s very cliche, but if you read the report on Elliott, he sounds like what you expect from a Detroit high school basketball player. The Detroit Three as I’m calling them will be very fun to watch throughout the years. They bring a good chemistry to the table, and all seem ready to ‘ball out’ next Fall.
Marquette still has a two scholarships open for next season, and they have their eyes on Jermari Baker, an extremely talented guard, who is a top 100 player. Baker has a laundry list of teams he likes including Kentucky. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them peak in the grad transfer waters, but there’s been zero noise about that
