    Naji Marshall

    Nice to learn a bit about Marshall's background.

    I think it's a bit surprising to have this article come off like Marshall's an underdog, when the fact is—according to 247sports—he is Xavier's 5th highest ranked recruit ever. I'm not saying he hasn't had to work for what he has achieved, just that his natural-born talent has been obvious to people around him for a while, and most people say he makes it look easy.

    Hard to call a four star prospect an underdog. Maybe he was recruited late, but people just hadn't seen him.

    The Enquirer article is here.

    Didn't Naji get a HUGE jump in the recruiting rankings late after he already committed to Xavier?? I haven't read that article yet, but I'm going to in a little, I was just trying to spitball why he was an "underdog" so to say.

    I saw him rated from 32-90. I was told by some Jersey guys that the people who actually watched him rated him high and the people who rate based on videos and such rated him lower.

    he is what they call a "baller".. You want 14 pt, 7 Reb, 2 assist, great defense. I don't know if a 3 or a 4..becoming meaningless

    I still think, despite the egg we laid against FSU, we win if Naji doesn't get hurt.

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    I concur, didn’t the FSU guy tank on his leg?
