    Wilson scored 37 points in a 72-68 season ending loss. Wilson states that Wisconsin and Marquette "stick out" at this point.

    From the Duke site....talks about his interest in Duke, despite the fact that they haven't offered him. Says being close to family and home is something that will hold a weight on his decision.

    Hasn't talked to Crean since Crean took the IU job. Will take official visits to MSU, Duke, Indiana, & Kansas for sure. Fifth official will be to either Tennessee, Purdue, or UCLA.

    Over a week old, but it's the only other update on him recently from either of the major sites, so I thought it should be here. I've got another article I read a few days ago, and I'll try to find that one too.

    I thought Wisconsin would be at the top of his list. I am sure that he knows Crean from unofficial visits he probably made to Marquette.

    6'7" yet handles like a guard. Very tight with MSU 2008 signee Korie Lucious. Didn't hear from MSU for about eight months because Izzo refused to recruit against his protege Crean (and Jamil was long considered a Marquette lock). MSU has applied the full court press now that Crean is a conference rival. MSU, Duke, Kansas, UCLA to get official visits with the fifth official going to one of Tennessee/Texas/Purdue. Has interest in Indiana but hasn't visited and Crean's restrictions will severely limit his contact. Jamil will likely know his destination before school starts in the fall but wants to stick to his timetable of an announcement in his mother's memory on her birthday next March.

    Wisconsin's got no scholarships left and my Crean reference has been edited for clarity.

    Amazing that Wisconsin has no scholarships for 09. Bo must be really working the recruiting trail. I guess I forgot about possible sanctions against IU which might keep him away from Crean.

    Yeah, Bo had four guys signed to his '08 class and he's had two '09 commits for quite some time, leaving him one to give. For whatever reason, he took a fifth from the class of '08 from way off the radar. Kid's from Arizona and no one knows much about him. Hard to believe Bo would do that, but it sounds like Wilson's family has never been too fond of Bo and wouldn't've ended up there anyway.

    So with Wisconsin out of scholarships, Indiana's pending sanctions, Marquette's uncertainty, and visits to Duke, Kansas, & UCLA, suddenly MSU is the "home team." Who'd've thought that would ever happen during the early stages of this recruitment when he was a lock to stay in-state....

    How about Wisconsin Green Bay:biggrin2: I believe our Wisconsin poster, Bernini, had Wilson pegged for Marquette or MSU but that was early in the process. He also said that Wilson did not like Wisconsin's offense. See previous page for his posts.
     
  10. Wisky will find a schollie for this kid...I still think they are the favorite...

    Can you tell me that Crean wouldn't contact Wilson, it was like one of the first things he did...That was a pretty poor article...

    Sure our local Wisky informist will fill us in...

    I would just hate for him to leave the big ten, so if he goes with Wisky, Indiana, or MSu I would be happy...

    Bernini I don't want to play fair I'm a thugs-are-us coach

    My confidence in Wisconsin's chances at securing a commitment from Jamil rose substantially ironically following filling our final scholarship currently available until 2010. That's because around that time also, Crean departed Marquette, and along with him went some of the Golden Eagles advantages I expressed concern about. Will they still play a fast paced style under Buzz Williams? Will the prestige of Dwyane Wade be as much of a lure without his former head coach there anymore? Not to mention that Williams isn't as highly regarded nationally or in state as Crean or Ryan was.

    The scuttlebutt has always been Jamil was leaning heavily towards staying in state because he's VERY close to his family. To wit, addressing an honest mistake by Litlbuck, I never said MSU was a favorite, nor would I ever have said that. I think MSU fans have false confidence that they can steal players out of Wisconsin just because the 5'10" SF Korie Lucious chose Sparty in the previous class. Well, Lucious was a unique case. He grew up a Spartan fan and even was rooting for MSU at Kohl during his official to Wisconsin (which was very rude, BTW). Wilson doesn't esteem MSU near as much as Lucious, and his is a completely different situation. He won't go to MSU. MSU doesn't even have a niche with Wilson as far as I see it, unless it's somehow falsely perceived that they don't play a halfcourt style. I mean they scored 36 against Iowa and 42 against us. I'm consistent in my disbelief in package deals. And this was the first I've heard he was close with Korie Lucious. As if he's not friendly with Evan Anderson (Wisconsin Playground Warrior) and Vander Blue from the 2010 class, who will probably pick the Badgers. Half the players on the Wisconsin team will have probably played AAU ball with or against Jamil Wilson numerous times. That was such a reach by Detroit News to work the angle that Lucious will be a big selling point for Wilson.

    The Badgers scholarship allotment has been exhausted, as was alluded to earlier, however as CB40 said we'll find a schollie for Wilson or another top '09 kid if he desires to sign, somehow. Several kids in that class, including Jamil, have reported that the Badgers are still recruiting them as hard as any other school. I doubt that would be the case if they just needed an insurance policy in case a scholarship happens to open up. They know something we don't. A scholarship will open up before signing day 2009. Be it Tim Jarmusz transferring or JP Gavinski sacrificing his scholarship willingly (like Taylor Rochestie at Wazzu) because of his attachment to the program. And Jamil could be the recruit to take advantage and fill it.

    Yeah, you're right. Korie & Jamil barely know each other. I mean, how close can "family" possibly be?

    Of course he's closer to Korie than he is to his ACTUAL family.....WHO LIVES IN WISCONSIN. By the way, consider the interviewer is from GoSpartans. Do you think he asked leading questions? It's wishful thinking to believe he'll go to MSU because of Korie Lucious. You're calling MSU the home team with a Wisconsin player. Do you have any idea how preposterous and arrogant that is? You steal one player out of Wisconsin and all of a sudden you own the place. Since Bo Ryan arrived in Madison, you're basically the same program as Wisconsin. If Wisconsin is out of the game, which I doubt we are, he'll go to Marquette. His whole recruitment, according to people who know him personally in some capacity, is a sham to drum up interest for his teammates. And lent credence to that report by talking in articles about how he wants his teammates to get noticed too while he's being scouted.

    The article is from quite awhile back and at that point, he hadn't spoken with Crean yet. As the story goes, Crean called him right after he took the IU job but Jamil was in school and couldn't answer. I'm sure they've spoken since then.
