Many times when a coaching change takes place, the most important first step of the new coach is to identify, recruit and land his point guard of the future. New Marquette coach Buzz Williams looks to have landed a good one as the Golden Eagles received a verbal commitment from summer AAU star Junior Cadougan earlier this summer.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Todd Rosiak has an Interview with Junior Cadougan on his J-S MU blog.
