Duane Wilson is off the board and headed to the Big East. His college choice is official.
Commitment Impact: Duane Wilson
Wilson, a 6-3 point guard, hit for 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting including 5-of-8 from downtown in a 61-43 win over Cuba City in the WI Division 4 Championship. He added four assists and four steals for good measure.
He is Marquette's second commitment in the class of 2013 and second local product as well, joining Milwaukee (WI) Vincent wing Deonte Burton.
His commitment gives the Golden Eagles relief in trying to find the next successor to current MU point guard Junior Cadougan. Cadougan graduates in 2013 and his absence would have left MU with just Derrick Wilson as a true point guard.
Wilson averaged 17.7 points, 5.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 3.3 steals per game for the Knights heading into the state tournament. He shot 50 percent from the field, 42 percent from the three-point line and 80 percent from the free throw line.
His size and quickness give him the tools to be an excellent point guard prospect at the next level. He has a feathery touch on his jump shot and can get to the rim with ease. Some of his point guard skills need work but he still has another year of high school and AAU ball before he moves on to the Marquette campus.
Scout ranks Wilson as the 22nd best point guard in 2013 and has him No. 94 overall in the class, two spots ahead of Wisconsin commit Bronson Koenig.
Landing the Milwaukee native could also be key in the Golden Eagles' pursuit of fellow Brew City prospects, Kevon Looney and Diamond Stone. Looney is a 2014 wing at Milwaukee (WI) Hamilton HS while Stone, a 2015 center, is teammates with Wilson at Dominican.
