Well, it's two weeks late, but Chicago Brooks College Prep point guard George Marshall has committed to Wisconsin! He is the second verbal commit to the Badger 2011 class, along with forward Devon Hodges.
Marshall is considered one of the top 3 or 4 point guards in his class within the state of Illinois. The strengths in his game currently are his midrange shooting, handle, and defense. He is inconsistent from the arc and has trouble finishing among the trees, but is working on improving those areas. He is a decent athlete and long for his height, with a very coach-able personality and has a decent basketball IQ. He has been compared to Jordan Taylor with better shooting skills at the same time in their development. If that holds true, Wisconsin is set at the point guard position for until 2015! Also, apparently his father is around 6'4", and given his baby-face, he may not be done growing either. Now hopefully we can just land Markus Crider, Traevon Jackson, or the longshot Chasson Randle.
