Watching and talking to Jameel McKay, it was pretty clear that Marquette was going to be the team to beat.
Friday, the Indian Hills Community College player -- who is originally from Milwaukee -- took an unofficial visit. He committed to Buzz Williams Saturday morning.
"They don't play players by position, they just play players," McKay told Rivals.com. "It doesn't matter if you are a four or a five or whatever, you just play and they put guys on the court."
The Golden Eagles' style is a natural fit for McKay. A 6-foot-8 forward with length and athleticism, he plays with relentless energy.
McKay says that Williams' experience with coaching and developing junior college players was important to him.
"That was probably one of the biggest things is his success with JUCO players," McKay said. "Knowing that he's dealt with players that have the same background as me and he was a JUCO coach, it was a big impact on me. He's proven he can develop JUCO players for the next level."
A hometown kid, the four-star McKay is excited to join a 2013 recruiting class that includes four-star high schoolers Deonte Burton and Duane Wilson
"Being able to play with Deonte Burton again, that played a big factor because we won a lot of AAU games together," McKay said. "Duane is coming, too, and it's real exciting to know that people are starting to stay in the city and want to stay here and play for Marquette."
