Buzz lands Youssoupha Mbao

Marquette has added Youssoupha Mbao to their 2009 class. Mbao, a native of Senegal averaging 13.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, and six blocks per game at Stoneridge Prep in California. This is definately exciting for MU fans as the Golden Eagles have lacked a big man in quite some time. Mbao is 7'1" and 198lbs so he'll have to hit the weight room immediately to compete in the Big East Conference. Could Buzz Williams have just signed the next Dikembe Mutombo?

You're just jealous that this guy could be the real deal. Unlike Brian Butch who was suppose to be "all world" according to some Badger fans.

If I was a Marquette fan I would be more concerned with how you replace the Matthews-McNeal-James trifecta.

Golden Eagles will be lucky to win 15 next season.
