Marquette head coach Buzz Williams added the latest piece to his 2011 recruiting class on Friday afternoon with a verbal commitment from Todd Mayo (Germantown, Tenn./Notre Dame Prep), who teams with another New England prep school product, Derrick Wilson from the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, to form the Golden Eagles' backcourt of the future.

While neither guy has Top 100 type credentials, I'm a big fan of this duo and expect them to exceed expectations together for a few reasons.

First of all, both guys are coming in chips on their shoulders and will have something to prove from day one in the Big East. There may not be two other guards in the country, and certainly not in the Northeast, who have had their games analyzed more in the last year.
