    Re: Marcus Jordan

    I think we have been on his list for a while. I saw some highlight clips of his when I was checking out Colvin (they play on the same HS team) he looks like a pretty good player, just nothing to get too excited about. Just my opinion.

    What about MJ making several visits to Hilton? Could you imagine how loud it would get in there if Marcus came into the game? ESPN!

    This sounds like a Jamie Pollard move

    Cross Marcus off your list. We don't recruit for publicity.

    Is he going somewhere else or are we not interested in him?

    Not all that interested either. He sounds like a back up plan if we didn't get Colvin...but we did.

    Our interest is nearly zero now. The last thing we need is another guard unless he's a can't-pass-up talent.

    Do we recruit for donations? Because this would be a nice get, think about the son of MJ down the road giving back to his college basketball program.

    Re: Marcus Jordan

    Maybe Hornacek should talk to him about walking on. He might have some sway being a former NBA player and all.

    Re: Marcus Jordan

    It's STUPID not to recruit him. Look at Illinois. MJ comes there about 5-8 times a year to watch his son, Jeff. It's cool for the students and the fans, it gets them on ESPN, and Jeff is not a bad player for the Illini. And by all accounts, Jeff is not as good of a player as Marcus is. I don't know why you wouldn't want this guy. Any help we can get to get on the national map is a good thing.

    We wouldnt need help getting on the national map if we start winning. I personally dont want to be getting a ton of exposure in the rebuild process with all of the bumps n bruises. If Marcus is good, I think we should keep at him. If he isnt something we need at the moment, I dont want to use him for his fathers handouts. Seems wrong to me.

    Re: Marcus Jordan

    I think winning some games will have a more positive effect on the program than MJ sitting in the stands a half dozen times a year.

    I don't even know where to start with this line of thinking.

    I'll second that. We need the kind of publicity involved with winning ball games. I couldn't care less if MJ ever steps foot into Hilton or donates 1$ to our program. I want the players our coaching staff feel give us the best shot of competing in the Big 12. If Marcus is one of them because of his skill set, so be it.
